Think Beyond The Candle

Scented candles are likely the most popular way to add fragrance to a home, But Essential Oil diffusers are a cleaner way to scent your home than candles because they don’t give off soot or ash. Essential oils should be used instead of plug-ins because they provide more natural smells. Essential oils are a more mild way to scent your home. It’s not overpowering or bombarding. Diffusers are also easily customizable in a way candles aren’t, since you can combine your favorite essential oils to create a scent that’s perfectly you!

**You can also make room and fabric sprays.

Small glass spray bottle

Fabric Refresher Spray

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup rubbing alcohol

1 teaspoon corn starch

20 drops of your favorite essential oil

Shake well before each use, and mist it over clothing or upholstery.

**You can also make soda sachets, which absorb bad smells and add good ones.

Fill a coffee filter with baking soda, add about five drops of essential oil, and tie it off. Toss it in a drawer or anywhere that needs a refresh.

**Next time you replace your furnace filter, add 10-15 drops of essential oil. The air will help disperse the scent throughout the space.

Essential oils purify and some kill bacteria and disinfect the air. Less toxins in your home, the better!
