After last week’s post on evictions, I chose to lighten up the mood this week. You are in your home or rental trying to make it your own, now let’s make it yours by making it smell good.
Your house can be cleaned fresh smelling all day when you use a DIY- all natural room smell. All you need for this first one is a mason jar, rosemary, vanilla extract and lemon. You’ll be amazed at how deliciously clean your home smells. (House of Hawthornes Tutorial)
It may be cold out but that doesn’t mean you can’t have your home smelling like a fresh, spring breeze. What do you need for this? Some kind or spray bottle or jar, water, vodka (yes I said vodka) and lilac oil. Enjoy! (At the Picket Fence Tutoral)
If you have carpets or rugs, you can freshen them with this homemade carpet powder. Sprinkle a mixture of this on your carpets, let sit for 5-30 minutes, vacuum and enjoy the scent about the house. Ingredients: Baking soda, dried rosemary, lavender oil (you only need a little bit) (By Brittany Goldwyn Tutoral)
Pre-made simmering pot recipes. You need:
- Mint and grapefruit, mason jar, lid and tag of some sort,
- Rosemary and lemon (see above), mason jar, lid and tag
- Lime, mint and ginger, mason jar, lid and tag
Note: these are great gifts to have premade for any ole occasion. (Two Purple Couches Tutorial)
Don’t throw away empty plug in air fresheners. Just add your favorite essential oil and water to it. Reuse the glass container. (Mom 4 Real Tutorial)
This one is my favorite! If you re not a fan of smoky candles, you’ll love this. Made up of water-absorbing polymer, cinnamon oil, orange oil, and water. Delicious. (Shaken Together Life Tutorial)
Cranberry Orange Potpourri
This just makes me hungry thinking about it. All you need for this is cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, rosemary and cranberry and oranges. Bring to a boil on the stove, then simmer. (Liz Marie Blog Tutorial)
