We have recently gotten into the huge craze that is Essential Oils. With the endless amount of uses that these pure extract oils have, we wanted to try a nice, simple DIY project. An air freshener seemed like a perfect idea. One of the best things about using Essential Oils for an air freshener is that you won’t have to deal with all those nasty chemicals from using store bought ones and this craft only requires two ingredients!

What you’ll need:
(if you want to decorate it like we did)
Start by spraying your mason jar with the color of your choice! (We used the Chalkboard Spray Paint)
Now when the paint is dry, take a paint brush and dip it into the acryllic paint of your choice. Fold the brush back with your finger and release so it creates a splatter effect.
Once the acrylic paint is dry, it’s time to pour in 1 cup of baking soda. Right after, put in about 15-20 drops of the essential oil of your choice (we used lavender).
You’re Almost done! Cut your cloth in a round piece in order to cover the top of the mason jar, but are still able to screw the lid back on.
Finally, place the lid on to complete and shake the mason jar to start releasing your essential oil’s scent.
I really like these fresheners a lot better than store bought sprays. You don’t have to deal with the nasty mist or pay a lot for plug-in refills! Just make sure to shake the mason jar every once in a while to bring out that scent!
