Make Your Own Air Freshener--Great Gift Idea!

For the cost of one spray can of air freshener, you can make many bottles of air fresheners! The best part about it is you don't have to worry about nasty chemicals when you spray!

To make your own, simply purchase essential oils and add to water. I have read formulas of 30-40 drops per cup of water. Simply put in a spray bottle (mist spray is best) and you are done.  Shake well before using.

I think this would be a great gift for teachers that your kids could make. They could help choose the oils. I think orange clove would be nice. Or maybe rosemary mint. Or lavender. Or maybe a pine scent. Oh the choices!  Wrap the bottle with scrapbook paper or print out a label on your computer, add a pretty ribbon and tag and voila!  You are done!

Amazon sells some of these oils as cheap as $2.50 a bottle.  Amazon also has a pack of Pack of 12 Fine Mist Spray Bottle 2.5 oz. for just $7.09.

What a great idea and I love the idea of using them as gifts. One could actually give a box of assorted scents. How cool is that! And the best news ... it's easy on the planet and no toxic chemicals to breathe in. Hey ... we're talking about Eco-friendly gifts on this week's Change The World Wednesday challenge ... maybe you want to link up to this post. I think everyone would be interested. :-) Either way ... thanks for a great idea!

Several years back I got this as a gift. I loved it and have been using them and I've also given a couple of them out as gifts too. Thanks for linking up to Welcome to Weekend Blog Hop. Following you.
