DIY Home Deodorizer Spray

I went a little crazy a few months back buying essential oils. Now I’m trying to come with different ways to use them in my home. One easy way is making your own DIY Home Deodorizer Spray. With three cats, two kids and a husband, my home often needs a boost of freshness. This spray is super fast to whip up and it takes on the scent of whatever essential oil you use in it.

Besides essential oil, you probably already have the other ingredients as they are items used often in the kitchen. Grab some baking soda from your pantry, lemon juice from your fridge, hot water from your faucet and your favourite essential oil. I used orange essential oil in mine because I love its invigorating scent!

Add the baking soda to the hot water and stir till its dissolved. Then, add your lemon juice and essential oil and stir. I poured the mixture into my spray bottle with a funnel to limit the mess. Give it a shake and spray away!  (Note – I bought my spray bottles on Amazon.ca, but they are also available on Amazon.com for my USA friends.)

The oil will separate from the water so always shake it to combine before you spray. This particular bottle is downstairs in John’s domain. The poor guy is uber smell sensitive so I think this will help freshen things up.

I made a pinnable collage with the recipe for you to pin for easy access.
