DIY home air freshners

So if you aren’t already aware, almost all home air fresheners including Bath & Body Works delicious smelling wallflowers, are full of VOCs or volatile organic compounds. VOCs are highly toxic and some of the side effects of inhaling them are memory loss, headaches, infertility, and cancer.

Good news! There is a solution to get your home smelling even better than all those fake scents! You can dump out the full air fresheners and refill them with essential oils.

All you have to do is take out the filter, dump out the liquid, rinse it out, fill it halfway with an essential oil of your choice (I highly recommend Eden’s Garden starter kit), and then fill the other half with water. Replace the filter and pop it in! This is so much safer for your health and I think it smells a lot better. Our favorite so far is sweet orange and thyme.
