Homemade Natural Room Freshner, Thrifty and Easy!

Want a thrifty and natural room freshner that you can make in very little time? This takes literally only a few minutes and costs near nothing!

So here are your ingredients:

Baking soda
Essential Oil(s) of your choice

I have a glass cheese shaker that I use to store my room freshner. There are already holes in the shaker part of the lid, so the fragrance can be released from the jar.  You could also use a mason jar and punch holes in the lid or a jelly jar or other jar that has a lid that you can punch holes so that the fragrance can be released into the room.

All you have to do is pour  a few inches deep of  baking soda into your jar
and then shake some essential oils into the jar. Place the lid on the jar and hold your hands over the holes in the lid and shake up a bit.  You can use your favorite essential oil or experiment with several essential oils blended together to make your own special fragrance.  Just experiment!

Especially nice for smaller rooms!

Do you have a favorite room freshner recipe or idea? I'd love to know!

  1. I use this in my closet. I keep it in a small mason jar on one of the shelves. Works like a charm!

  2. It sure does Daisy! I keep some in my linen closet too and it always smells so nice! It does work really well in smaller places without having to add a bigger amount of essential oils. Nice to set underneath the cabinet under the sink too! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. Great idea! Thanks for sharing this on The HomeAcre Hop! Hope to see you back on Thursday :)
