After cleaning our house, we all want our happy place to smell nice as well which compels us to use room fresheners which contain harmful chemicals.
If you are trying to become more sustainable each day, then such harmful room fresheners might not be the best choice for you.
Here are a few eco-friendly and super easy ways in which you can make your home smell like a fresh garden.
1.Make your Own Room freshener
What you need: Water, Essential oils, and a spray Bottle.
Procedure: Fill a spray bottle with a half to one cup water and eight drops each of three different air-freshening essential oils. (We recommend mixing wild orange, sandalwood, and clove essential oils. Tea tree, eucalyptus, and lemon also make a great fragrant combination.) Mist the spray around your home whenever the air smells stale.
2.Indoor Fragrant Plants

Potpourri is a mixture of dried, naturally fragrant plant materials, used to provide a gentle natural scent. It is often placed in a decorative bowl. The word "potpourri" comes into English from the French word pot-pourri.
Follow these steps to make your own pot-pourri at home:
- Collect petals, cloves and orange peel. As per one individual choice, you can create your own aromatic fragrance.
- Dry these ingredients for 2 weeks on a baking tray. Make sure they don’t overlap each other and lie in 1 layer only.
- Put the dry ingredients into an airtight container. Add 2-3 drops of essential oils to it.
Rose oil, cinnamon oil, lemon oil, orange oil, honeysuckle oil, and bayberry oil are all great choices for potpourri.
- Seal the container and allow it to soak the essential oils for up to 6 weeks. Try to keep it in dark place untouched.
