Quick ‘n Easy Natural Air Freshener

By Savvybrown @savvybrownblog

I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it was too cute not to try. It was posted my great blog called Itty Bitty Impact. Basically, it’s just baking soda and essential oils, but you can have so much fun with it and it can be made in less than 5 minutes! So here goes:

DIY Quick and Easy Natural Air Freshener


  • Baking soda
  • Essential oil ( I used lemongrass, but try orange, or rosewood or even lavender!)
  • A glass jar with a lid (this can be a mason jar, or I used a glass shaker I had laying around)

Take the baking soda and fill your jar 1/4 of the way up. Then, add 8-10 drops of your favorite essential oil. If the jar has a closed lid, you can punch holes in it with a hammer and thick nail. Or you can use a power drill with a small bit to make some holes in the lid.

I was lucky enough to find this Ikea confectioner’s shaker, which already has holes in the lid! (If it looks familiar, that’s because I also use it’s twin in my kitchen to dispense baking soda that I use to clean my sink. You also can use a clay or earthenware jar, and it doesn’t have to have a lid, but I have cats that stick their faces in everything, so mine gets a lid!.

This is really cheap and easy and isn’t full of those questionable chemicals that they put in those plug-in thingys! The baking soda is a natural deodorizer, and the essential oils are a nice natural scent. Whenever the fragrance dies down, just shake the jar a bit. I’m going to make another one that I will keep by the window in my bedroom with jasmine, so when I get a gentle breeze in the mornings, it’ll give the room a nice aroma.
