Making Your Own Room Fresheners

Make your own aromatherapy room fresheners, including room sprays and pot pourri, to create a tranquil atmosphere that you can relax in.

Making Pot Pourri

Place a bowl of pot pourri on your window sill, so breezes can waft the scents around.

  • Gather the ingredients for your blend. Include a fixative, such as orris root powder, for preservation.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in the bowl, breaking up any larger ingredients into smaller pieces.
  • Now add some fragrant oils and stir vigorously.
  • Place all the ingredients in a glass container and seal it tightly.
  • Leave the pot purri for two weeks in a cool dark place, stirring it daily for the first three days.
  • After a few months your pot pourri may need a boost, simply add more oils and repeat steps 3-5 above.
  • Pot pourri can contain any dried fruits and flowers that you like, such as apples, cherries and rose petals.

Making Your Room Spray

A small bottle with a pump spray nozzle allows you to fragrance a room in moments when you do not wan to use a vaporiser or oil burner. Spray bottles are portable and immediate, enabling you to spray any room at any time. Use a room spray to get rid of bad odours.
