Monsoon is one such season that many of us await. They bring more than just rains to us. They are refreshing, they cleanse the atmosphere and they help the flowers bloom. But is that all ending up good? Monsoons can also bring unwanted stench from the soaked furniture or the leaking drains too. But why hate monsoons when you can replace the stench with a good fragrance? Here are a few DIY room fresheners for you.
1. Lemon rosemary cinnamon simmer pot
Coming home to this fragrance would be the most relieving feeling ever. To make this, you will need a lemon cut into slices and some strings of rosemary and cinnamon. You can separate the cinnamon flavour with lemon alone. You can also add vanilla for extra freshness. All you need to do is add the above ingredients with two cups of water and bring them to a boil. Make sure they simmer together and not burn. Then you can store the mixture in small glass jars around the house.
2. Orange peel candles
What’s more refreshing than the citrus? Citrus fresheners are not only used at home, they’re also used in cars to keep the air fresh. To make your very on orange peel candle, you need to cut oranges in two halves and melt a candle on the stove, next pour the hot wax into the candles. Make sure the orange peel has no holes. As the wax cools, it will take the shape of the peel. As you burn these candles, the citrus peel will also burn to refresh you. They also add to a good décor at homes.
3. Customised candles
Candle not only add the beauty to your house, but scented candles can change the whole aura of the surrounding. To customise your candles, melt a plain candle and then add some of your favourite flavours to the wax. Some great combinations could be cinnamon, vanilla, lavender etc. mix well and pour the hot wax into moulds and light them up. they will lighten up not only your house, but also your mood.
4. Scented wood blocks
Do you have a particular smell you keep wanting to go back to? Are you looking for ways to keep them stored? Well, wood blocks and wine corks can help you there. Make sure the perfume you love is in liquidated. Dilute the perfume and soak the wood blocks or wine corks in them overnight and place them all over the house in a bowl.
5. Baking soda freshener
You can’t get much simpler than this baking soda air freshener in a homemade mason jar diffuser. The air freshener is made with only two ingredients: baking soda and essential oils. The baking soda absorbs bad odors while the essential oils create a pleasing aroma. So now we have no reason to dislike the monsoons, do we?
