DIY Holiday Scented Air Fresheners

DIY holiday-scented-air-fresheners

A couple of years back I gave away four sets of these 1 ounce bottles of air fresheners.   With the holidays fast approaching I thought I would share the recipes for these wonderful smelling room sprays so you can make some for yourself to enjoy or give as gifts.   The recipe makes 1 ounce, but you can easily adjust the Oils to make more.

I am also including the labels I used which can be printed on paper and taped on or printed on a 8 ½” X 11” label sheet.
