Make Your Own Air Freshener With Essential Oils

Before the age of mass production and marketing, humans were able to make their cleaning products from ingredients that they harvested from nature. Many cleaning supplies that we buy today are filled with harsh chemicals that leave toxic residue behind on surfaces where children and pets can ingest them. That is why making your air freshener with essential oils is a great idea!

How To Make Environmentally Safe Laundry Detergent at Home

4lbs 7oz Washing Soda (not baking soda)
2lbs Borax **Do not use scented borax, look for an unscented version or you can buy it online*
2 cups Epsom Salt
2 cups OxyClean (or an oxygen-based bleach alternative)
2 cups 20 Mule Team Borax (found in the detergent aisle of most grocery stores)
4 cups Baking Soda (beware baking soda is not called for, but it does help with odor-fighting and softening your clothes – I added some because my kids have a habit of spilling things)
