Natural Orange Air Freshener

Since I am always on the lookout for natural products, I was looking for a Natural Air Freshener / Room Deodorizer.  I have read all over the internet about using baking soda and essential oil.  So I decided to go that route rather then a gel air freshener.  I did read the the other about a spray air freshener, and and I may try that next, but for today, I am going the baking soda route. 

I used a small mason jar, and cut a small square of fabric for the center of the screw on cap.  The fabric is thin enough that the scent will come through the fabric.    It is that easy.

Natural Orange Air Freshener / Room Deodorizer


1/4 cup baking soda
30 drops sweet orange or tangerine essential oil ( you can use any scent that you want.  I made a second one with jasmine fragrance oil)
mortar and pestle
1 small mason jar 
6 inch square of thin fabric
screw lid without the center


Put baking soda in mortar and add essential oil a few drops at a time working into baking soda with pestle. 

Put baking soda in a small mason jar, and put the piece of fabric over the top and screw the lid on. 

I decided to the jasmine scent in my living room and the orange scent in the bathroom.  It looks really pretty in there.

Let me know what you think about this air freshener.  I always love hearing from you.
