DIY “FEBREZE”

 

 

I literally just got this recipe a few minutes ago from one of my besties who swears by it and say her DIY version last longer and is much cheaper than purchasing ready-made fabric/home fresheners. Most people have these simple items at home and can make as much or as little as you want at a time. You can customize the scent of your freshener to the season or just your favorite smells. I always prefer to make my own products because you can usually save yourself money but you know exactly what the ingredients are. That always makes me feel more comfortable than buying something but I can’t lie that sometimes my homemade concoctions don’t always come out right.

Ingredients:

Your Favorite Liquid Fabric Softener (I prefer Method myself)
Baking Soda
Hot Water
Reusable Spray Bottlehttp://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=fashijonz-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B00745X4UC

Directions:

1. Add 3 tbsp. Fabric Softener to empty spray bottle
2. Fill spray bottle with approximately 2 cups hot water slowly. {depending on size of bottle}
3. Add in 1 tbsp. Baking Soda
4. Mix once well and let it settle then mix again until the baking soda has completely dissolved.

I just found this on Facebook from one of my friends and I think it is an amazing idea!! This is so simple and a great way to reuse citrus rinds instead of just throwing them out, you can also use the rinds as extra exfoliant in body butters, washes and scrubs! This is a simple and quick way to freshen up your home with ingredients you already have at home! No more having to go out and spend money on sprays, candles or other expensive fresheners. I cannot wait to try this!

Supplies:

Citrus Fruit (orange/lemon/lime/grapefruit)
Organic Olive Oil
(olive, vegetable, olive, coconut, avo, whatever you have at home)
Essential Oil (if you want to mix scents and get fancy)

Directions:
1. Cut the fruit in half.
2. Cut out the fruit but leave the core center attached.
3. Pour oil in to the cored out fruit.
4. Add any other essential oils or even bits of the fruit in to the oil.
5. Light the stem and it will burn for hours.
