Natural Air Fresheners

Have you ever heard of chlorofluorocarbons? That is the chemical ingredient in commercial air fresheners that is depleting the earth’s ozone layer and also doing who knows what to your family’s health. Essential oils are a much better option for making your home smell nice. There are several different ways to disperse your oils through the air as we have discussed before (see How To Use Essential Oils III.)

Diffusers are a very easy and effective way to fragrance a room. Be sure you use a diffuser made of a nonporous material so that it can be easily wiped clean when you want to change oils. There are many different types of diffusers on the market these days but even a bowl of boiling water with a few drops of your favorite essential oils added and placed centrally will leave a lingering scent all over the room. Try using the bowl before you purchase any kind of diffuser to see how well it works. If you use a bowl of hot water, remove it when the heat is gone and be careful to keep it out of the reach of children.
