Homemade Air Fresheners:
Place a couple of drops of essential oil on a folded paper towel or on cotton balls. Place in a margarine container, poke holes in the lid, then place in an out-of-sight area in the room, such as behind furniture. Make the scents seasonal – for instance, use peppermint or cinnamon at the holidays and lavender in the spring. Note: Be sure to keep away from small children and animals.

Scented Storage Areas: Your storage and "work" areas don’t need to smell musty. Place a few drops of essential oil on a cotton ball or cosmetic pad. Place the cotton ball or pad inside a plastic bag, poke a few air holes in it, then bend a paper clip to hang. Certain oils work better for certain spaces: Closet: lavender, bergamot or almond Garage: cinnamon, eucalyptus, clove Cupboard: orange, cinnamon, peppermint Laundry room: lavender, almond, peppermint Attic/basement: bergamot, orange and peppermint
