DIY Natural Home Fragrance

Artificial scents can be unpleasing and the harmful chemicals can be bad, especially for people with asthma and allergies. Try homemade scents instead! These scents will make your home have a nice warm greeting for any occasional: small gathers, parties, or even an open house!  

The good thing about this project is it is cheap and the materials are easy to gather. All you will need is mason jars, water, spices or herbs, fruit, and essential oils. Below are some popular combinations you can use. However, it is not limited to these five; you can mix together about any combination you prefer.

  • Lemon, rosemary, and lavender oil
  • Orange, cinnamon sticks, and cloves
  • Mint, vanilla, and lime
  • Lime, coconut oil, and vanilla
  • Cinnamon sticks and sliced apples

To begin, cut up the fruit you plan to use. Fill up half a saucepan with water, then add in the ingredients you will be using. Let it boil on a low flame to really release the fragrance. Let it cool before adding it to a mason jar and putting it out.

The good thing about putting this in mixture is you can prep an abundance and store the jars into the refrigerator. When ready to use them, follow the steps above.
