Recently I traveled to Los Angeles to visit family. For several days the air quality was very poor. My eyes and throat were burning from the heavy layer of smog hanging in the atmosphere. One morning when it was particularly irritating to my eyes, I decided to diffuse Purification Essential Oil Blend from Young Living Essential Oils. Within minutes I noticed my eyes stopped burning and the air seemed to smell much better in the house.
That reminded me of another DIY blend that is very refreshing. It is called Forrest Air Freshening Blend. The basic recipe I use is 5 drops Idaho Blue Spruce, 3 drops Lavender, 3 drops Eucalyptus Radiata, and 2 drops Cedarwood.
There are a couple of ways to use this blend. You can mix a batch of the blend and then diffuse small amounts in your favorite diffuser. If you want to make a larger batch, simply multiply the individual ingredients by 10 and store in a 15 ml glass bottle. Be sure to label the bottle with the contents and recipe so you know what is in the bottle and can easily refill it later.
Another way to use this blend is to add the drops of essential oil for a single batch of the blend to a 2 ounce glass spray bottle and fill the rest of the way with Vodka. This makes an excellent room freshener to spray in the bathroom!
Now, maybe you are not partial to the scent of Purification or to a forest scent for freshening the air in a room. That’s OKAY! Just pick a single oil or blend that you enjoy and diffuse it or put about 20 drops in a glass spray bottle, add Vodka and spray away! Be sure to always shake that bottle before spraying.
I hope these ideas inspire you to freshen up the air in your home! If you have a favorite scent to diffuse, please share it!
