Carpet freshener

This is a lovely blend of essential oils that will freshen up your carpet.  Simple to make and free of nasty chemicals. You can combine the oils, or use any one of them.

Carpet Freshener

  • 1 cup Bicarb soda 
  • 20 drops Lavender
  • 20 drops Lemongrass
  • 10 drops Eucalyptus
  • 10 drops Cinnamon

You need a wide-mouthed jar with a lid. Add the bicarb and all the essential oils. Close the lid tightly and shake well to distribute the oils.  Allow 24 hours for the oils to infuse into the bicarb soda.   Sprinkle over your carpet and allow to sit for 15 – 30 minutes, then vacuum the powder. A bonus is that your vacuum cleaner will smell great too!
