Air fresheners can cover up and eliminate unpleasant odors in your home or office, and can be purchased at any grocery store or supermarket. However, many of these commercial air fresheners contain artificial chemical fragrances. One alternative is to make your own air freshener using natural substances, such as rock salt and orange essential oil. This way, you can scent your space with the aroma of fresh oranges, without harming your health in the process.
