Homemade Natural Air Freshening Spray

May 12th, 2013 | Posted by Angela in Homemade Household Cleaners

Our house is a home full of love.  Our home filled with love has been created by my husband and I, our five kids and our many, many critters.  All of this love can stink at times.  When our home begins to smell a bit too funky, stale, or downright stinky I enjoy spraying my homemade air freshening spray to eliminate the unpleasant and sometimes downright nasty odors that can occur.

When our air is not as fresh as I prefer homemade air freshening spray is very welcome and at times very necessary!  I enjoy having a home that smells fresh but I refuse to use chemical filled store-bought air fresheners such as Febreze.   I have found that making my own air freshening spray works just as well as any store-bought alternative and I can custom make it to whatever fragrance I desire.

To avoid all of the nasty chemicals I make my own homemade natural air freshening spray.  By making my own air freshener I am able to keep the chemicals out of our home and keep our money in our bank account.  This spray works well, really it does.  Our home is filled with 5 kids, 1 dog, 2 cats, 1 bunny, 3 gerbils, 3 lizards, and plenty of fish…I make this often!

This recipe for air freshener uses only three ingredients AND you probably have these ingredients in your home right now.  To make your own air freshening spray you need vinegar, water, and an essential oil of your choice.  I change-up the scent of my spray every batch.  I have used grapefruit, orange, lemon, cinnamon, lavender, and many more.  Choose a natural fragrance that you enjoy and whip up a batch!

Recipe for homemade natural air freshening spray:

3 cups of water

1 cup of vinegar

30 drops of pure essential oils

Mix these three ingredient up and in a spray bottle and spray away!  You now have homemade air freshening spray without all of the chemicals of the store-bought varieties and you saved money.  Making your own air freshening spray is a win win in my opinion.
