You want your house to smell good, you can try the sprays and plug-in devices but those are chemicals that you and your family are breathing in and that’s not good. I do like to use candles but you have to be very careful if you have kids or pets, I can just see my cat jumping up and catching her big fluffy tail on fire.
If you want something totally natural you need to try this super simple budget-friendly recipe to make homemade natural air freshener, your house will smell fabulous. Put orange, lemon, or lime rinds in a saucepan with cinnamon sticks or just plain cinnamon powder and water. Bring to a simmer and leave it on low for a few hours. It smells like you are baking some kind of cinnamon bread or dessert, the smell is mouthwatering and it’s chemical-free.
Anytime you use oranges, lemons or limes just save the peels in a plastic bag in the freezer and then just pull a few out whenever you want to freshen your home, put it all together and simmer on the stove for a few hours, you can even experiment a little and try some nutmeg or cloves, any of those really aromatic spices will work and it is so budget-friendly, probably just a few pennies to make and when you are done it can go right into the compost bin, everything in it is compostable.
It looks like kind of strange mixture but I guarantee you will love it, no chemicals or heavy aerosol sprays, that’s good for you and the planet.
