DIY Disinfecting Air Freshener

Disinfecting our homes is critical to our health, we have to kill the bad germs that are that are brought in to our homes. Kids get sick at school, throw up at home, and germs are brought in to our homes. It’s part of life. And there are commercial disinfecting sprays out there that kill germs. Personally, I hate the way they smell. Whatever is in them stinks regardless of whatever smell they add to cover it up. Plus the harmful chemicals that are in those products are probably doing you more harm than good.

So here is an all natural solution to using those types of products. This combination of Essential Oils is a powerful alternative to those commercial disinfecting sprays. Plus it smells a whole lot better.

So instead of running out and buying commercial disinfecting sprays, try this instead.

DIY Air FreshenerIngredients:

  • 16 oz Glass Spray Bottle filled with Clean Water
  • 15 Drops Lemon Essential Oil (Found Here)
  • 15 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil (Found Here)
  • 15 Drops Melaleuca (Tea Tree) Oil (Found Here)


Simply add all the essential oils to the glass spray bottle filled with clean water and shake well. The oils will separate as the mixture sits so shake well before each use. Just spray on the areas of the home that you need to disinfect. It’s that easy!
