I love for my home and car to smell fresh and inviting. However with an active, full house of pets and people that are constantly on the go that isn’t always easy. While candles and air fresheners cover up smells they often cause those of us with sensitivities and allergies a lot of problems. That’s why we use a lot of essential oils and natural products at home these days. It recently occurred to me that I should be using it to make my own Homemade Fabric Freshener and Linen Spray to freshen up our furniture and linens. I experimented and came up with this great fabric freshener and linen spray recipe. It’s easy and affordable to make!

They are all natural and have the properties of the plants from which they were derived. They are thought to be good for you where as synthetic fragrances have can sometimes be dangerous.
