DIY Air-Fresheners

Peppermint Essential OilDaily Health Tips update for February 9:

Tackle even the most offensive smells the natural way! Instead of spending money on expensive candles, plug-in units or sprays with dubious chemicals, try these methods for a freshly scented home.


  • For a citrus air freshener:  Cut three lemons into quarters. Place in a saucepan; fill with just enough water to cover the slices. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  • Any scent room spray:  Mix a teaspoon of any essential oil with two cups of water in a spray bottle. Use lavender to create a calming mood.  Try peppermint for a cooling and refreshing scent.
  • Make your own potpourri: Purchase dried herbs or use your own from your garden. Crumble dried lavender, rose petals and sage together and place in a decorative dish in your bathroom or bedroom.

What’s your favorite essential oil for household use?
