So, who here has animals? Who has kids? Who has husbands? Just kidding on the husband comment (kinda).
If you have carpet in your house, most of the time, I’m sure it could use a bit of a pick me up in the freshness category.
I was searching for our natural carpet deodorizer the other night and when I finally found it, I saw it was completely empty.
So, in typical oily fashion, I started concocting my own recipe. I knew purification was a must because of how well it zaps air odors that animals leave, but I also wanted to add lemon to give it that ‘freshly cleaned’ smell.
It turned out smelling wonderful!! And bonus: by sucking up the combo on the floor, it also deodorizes the sweeper filter!
Give it a try!
Disclaimer: I’m not a DIY’er by any means, but this was SO simple, that even I was able to pull it off!
What you will need:
1/2 cup baking soda
10 drops Young Living Purification essential oil
5-6 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil (you can also use orange, tangerine or grapefruit)
Combine the baking soda and both oils, slowly stirring the oils into the baking soda. Once the oils are completely stirred in (& clumps are gone), it’s ready!
You can store it in any glass container with a lid, after use.
