Essential oil users may not have thought about combining their oils with baking soda, but they can now use the instructions in this report to use this familiar item to make a practical air freshener for their home, office, or car.
Jennifer Lane explains that baking soda, a staple ingredient that many people already have in their homes to use for cleaning or as a deodorizer in the refrigerator, is a powerful odor absorber and can be used to neutralize unpleasant smells.
A Waste Management study reported that when baking soda was spread at the bottom of organic waste garbage cans, the odor was reduced by approximately 70%.
The instructions in this guide pair baking soda with lemon essential oil to make a deodorizing combination that does not cover unpleasant odors but actually neutralizes them and leaves a faint, fresh smell of lemon. Readers can make multiples of this simple, inexpensive deodorizer to place in the various parts of the home that sometimes smell musty.
To make the air freshener, a person needs just four ingredients: baking soda, lemon essential oil, a coffee filter, and a mason jar with a jar ring.
The report’s instructions say to mix the baking soda and essential oil and place them into the jar, which will then be covered with the coffee filter and secured by the jar ring.
The coffee filter replaces the jar’s inner lid to keep the mixture from spilling out if the jar is accidentally turned on its side. To keep the mixture fresh, users can shake the mixture from time to time and add extra drops of essential oil.
The report offers simple decoration ideas, but individuals can be more elaborate and decorate the jar with ribbons and colors that fit the home’s decor. Users can also try different essential oils for a variety of fresh scents.
