Be kind to your wallet and make your own room fresheners! This is also a great bonding idea; make these easy to follow recipes with your kids....they will feel so proud of themselves every time they walk by their scents that they made themselves! Read on Readers!
Homemade Room Fresheners
Yes! You Can Make Your Own Room Fresheners!Making Potpourri~Place a bowl of potpourri on your windowsill, so breezes can waft the scents around:
1.  Gather the ingredients including a fixative, such as orris root powder.
2. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, breaking larger ingredients, into pieces.
3. Now add some fragrant oils and stir vigorously. Place the ingredients in a glass container and seal it tightly.
4. Leave the potpourri for two weeks in a cool dark place, stirring it daily for the first three days. After a few months of use, your potpourri may need a boost-simply add more oils and repeat steps 3-5 above.
(potpourri can contain any dried fruits and flowers that you like, such as apples and roses)
