DIY: All Natural Lemon Carpet Freshener March 30 2016

As spring approaches, we would like to invite you to join us in that seasonal tradition of spring cleaning.  We invite you to explore lemons, that natural product that can be used as an astringent, a cleanser, antibacterial agent and much more.

Last year we introduced a new fragrance – lemony sensations.  It is a blend of lemongrass, lemon and lemon balm.  It is quite aromatic providing an invigorating and calming sensation.  The combination of these essential oils has cleansing and antibacterial properties that can be used to enliven our skin, refresh our closets, as well as deodorize our carpets.

Try this recipe for your rugs/carpet:

Carpet freshener

1 glass sugar sprinkle jar with lid
1½ cup baking soda
25 drops lemon essential oil
10 drops lemongrass essential oil

Mix thoroughly using a whisk to blend out any lumps. Sprinkle generously on carpets/rugs.  Let stand for 15 minutes.  Experience the refreshing scents throughout your home. Vacuum.  Place remaining mixture in a glass jar with lid to preserve fragrance and freshness.

Happy Spring Cleaning!
