I love being able to freshen indoor air naturally.  I’m not a big fan of all the chemicals and artificial ingredients in many air freshener products. I really don’t want to release those things into the air that the kids and our pets are breathing but there are times that you just need to freshen the air. Maybe you have lingering odors from dinner or your kids just brought home a bag of stinky sports gear. Either way, the air quality is less than pleasant. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Freshen Indoor Air Naturally – Coffee Tealight DIY

There are a lot of ways that you can freshen indoor air naturally.  You can open the windows, put on a pot of simmering potpourri, or try this coffee tealight DIY.  The scent from this coffee tealight comes from the oils in the coffee beans and not the candle itself.  The tealight can be replaced when it burns down and the coffee beans can be replaced when you no longer smell the scent when you burn the tealight.

This is a very flexible DIY project.  You can use any type of coffee beans depending on the scent you want.  I choose plain coffee beans but you can try hazelnut or French vanilla if you prefer.  The size of the glass bowl you use can be changed depending on what you have available – just add more or fewer tealight candles in the container depending on the size.  You don’t need to use a clear glass container if you don’t have one. You can use a ceramic bowl, etc. Just be sure not to place the candle too close to the edge of the glass so it doesn’t break.

  1. G'day from Oz. Thanks for sharing this great idea-I can almost smell the coffee beans from here! If you have a minute to spare I'd be thrilled if you could share your post at my weekly Say G'Day Saturday linky party. It has just started and this would be a fabulous addition. Best wishes for a great weekend. Natasha in Oz

  3. I could have used this yesterday when the workers had to stain a few feet of wood in my kitchen. For such a small area the smell drove us out of the house. Most sprays or other air freshener products irritate me (residual effect of pregnancy). And I looooove the smell of coffee.
