How to Make Homemade Febreze for Spring Freshness

In this post, I’ll show you how to make homemade Febreze spray for spring freshness. The house is starting to smell a bit musty and stale, but it’s still too cold outside for me to open up all the windows and air out the rooms. With company coming over for Easter, I want the house to smell fresh without using a room deodorizer with chemicals and artificial fragrances. David and his fiance have been spending the weekends with us, and the room needs some attention before they visit again. It’s very easy to freshen a room in general or things like your couch, throw pillows or curtains using this homemade air freshening spray. This post contains affiliate links.

This homemade spray is very simple to make, and if you use essential oils regularly in your home, you probably have most of the ingredients you need on hand already. The type of essential oil you use is entirely up to you. If you’re looking for a fresh springtime scent, I’d recommend that you use a rose or a lavender essential oil. Lemon, grapefruit or orange would give your home a fresh, clean scent. If you have an area with pets, you might want to try peppermint to discourage pests.

Most air freshening sprays use alcohol as the base with filtered water. We don’t purchase alcohol, and I don’t want it in the house. So, instead, I played around a bit with the original pin as part of our monthly remakes group to come up with a homemade Febreze that uses isopropyl alcohol instead, and it worked perfectly.

  1. I have made a similar air freshener with my essential oils but didn’t know it can also be used as a homemade Febreze. That’s so cool, I think I will mix up a new batch today. I love to use citrus scents, too. 

  2. I can’t wait until I can get all the windows open. I have used essential oils for cleaning and diffusing, but never for a Febreze spray. Thanks for the idea, as soon as I get a few new spray bottles I will be mixing up a batch. Enjoy your family  time at Easter!

    I love using essential oils but have never made a spray like this.  I would certainly like to try it.
