I Ditched the Storebought All Natural Air Freshener Too
I used to order a natural air freshener spray from Bio-Kleen and I liked using it. The scent was natural and helped get rid of the doggy smell in our house. With two big dogs around, it can get a little stinky.

What I don’t like about purchasing that all natural air freshener spray is the cost and the plastic spray bottle. I’m on a mission to reduce our plastic waste and the spray bottle is only partially recyclable. In addition, the part that can be recycled isn’t closed loop recycling like glass or aluminum. So eventually, it will end up in a landfill.
Homemade is Better!
So I decided to try making my own all natural air freshener spray with just ingredients I have on hand. My first attempt was just two ingredients…water and lemon essential oil. It smells great, is easy and inexpensive to make, and I’m reusing the plastic bottle instead of buying a new one!
Here’s what I did…I washed the bottle from my Biokleen air freshener, refilled it with clean water, and added about 30 drops of lemon essential oil. You can use any essential oil you like.
