Making your own air freshener at home is easy when you have the proper ingredients. Essential and fragrance oils are naturally derived from plants and contain their aromatic essences. These oils are useful in creating air and linen sprays for your home. Making your own linen and room oil sprays gives you the ability to create your own signature scent blends that help keep your home and linens smelling fresh and clean. Making your own homemade linen and room sprays with fragrance oils serves as a cost friendly replacement for expensive commercial fresheners.
Fill a 500 ml spray bottle halfway with distilled water.
Add 50 ml of polysorbate 20 to the bottle of distilled water. Polysorbate 20 is an emulsifying ingredient that allows water and oil to mix together. Like the rest of the ingredients needed for this craft, it can be found in craft supply or hobby stores.
Mix a50 ml blend of fragrance or essential oils in the small glass dish. For example, 25 ml of cherry fragrance oil and 25 ml of vanilla essential oil creates an intoxicating and sweet scent for your home and linens. You can experiment with a variety of different scents to create your own. Use disposable plastic pipettes to blend the scents.
Add the oil from the bowl to the spray bottle of emulsifier and water.
Secure the lid of the spray bottle and shake it vigorously for a minute. This blends the oils with the water and creates a scented spray for your room and linens.
Shake the bottle before each use to make sure the solution is thoroughly dispersed before spraying.
