Essential Oils Air Freshener
Essential oils can take a room from stinky to sweet in seconds. Blogger Stephanie Dulgarian combines essential oils with baking soda and water for a simple DIY air freshener. She suggests using vanilla or cinnamon oils for a truly delicious smell.
Summer Citrus Diffuser
Jill Winger from The Prairie Homestead combines four fruit oils to create a summer blend. She recommends doubling the recipe if you're a fan of citrus, and she also suggests using a glass jar so the oils don't break down.
