We came up with a quick and simple tutorial to make your own air freshener that has only two ingredients—baking soda and essential oils! Read on to get started, and your home will be smelling fresh in no time.

 
Ingredients:
1 small Mason jar with band
1/4 cup baking soda
5-6 drops of your favorite essential oil
Small piece of fabric
 
Directions:
  1. Put 1/4 cup baking soda into a small jar. Add 5-6 drops of your favorite doTERRA essential oil or blend.
  2. Recommended Essential Oils: Balance, Cassia, Geranium, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemon, doTERRA On Guard®, Purify, or Wild Orange.
  3. Put piece of fabric on jar and seal with band.
  4. Editor's Tip: Add some style by drawing a design onto a piece of paper and then securing the design on top of the lid with a strong tape around the edges and poking holes along the pattern.
  5. Place jar in an area you would like to keep smelling fresh. This could include: the bathroom, near a garbage can, in your closet, near your dirty clothes, etc. Shake the jar often to activate the fresh scent.
  6. If scent starts to fade, simply add 2-3 drops of essential oil to jar.
