Make Your Own Nontoxic Air-Freshening Granules With Essential Oils

Air-freshening granules are a wonderful way to add a fresh scent to your home. Unfortunately many of the commercially produced air-fresheners contain less-than-desirable ingredients.

 This simple recipe uses nontoxic ingredients to emit a fresh, lasting fragrance. 

Items Needed: 

Small Glass Jar
Uncooked Rice
10-20 drops of your favorite essential oil or blend of oils

For this recipe we used Lemon and Orange Essential Oils.

In a glass bowl we mixed our essential oils with our uncooked rice.

Stir to blend well.  

Place the scented rice anywhere a fresh scent is desired.
We put ours in a small glass jar and tied some ribbon around it.  Lovely for the eyes and the nose!

Other scent ideas:
Lavender or Resting for the Bedroom
Orange and Lemon for the Kitchen
Peppermint and Lemon or Cleanse Blend for the Bathroom
Orange, Balsam Fir and Cinnamon Bark for the Christmas Season
