It’s spring cleaning time, and I’m mining all my favorite sources for new ways to keep my house fresh, clean and healthy—naturally. I love this air-freshening spray that I found on the Herb Companion site. It’s a snap to make and leaves my home smelling heavenly.

Simple Air Freshener 

4 drops essential oil of white thyme
6 drops essential oil of tea tree
8 drops essential oil of clove
2 teaspoons 190-proof alcohol    
Filtered or distilled water

1. In a glass measuring cup, stir the oils into the alcohol. If the oils do not dissolve in the alcohol completely, add another teaspoon of alcohol. Add water to the 1/2-cup line. Pour the solution into a glass bottle with a spray nozzle.

2. To use, spray into the air, avoiding people’s faces.
