Natural Refresher spray recipe and insect repellent
Random but funny picture!
In case you'r wondering: yes! This is an onion!
When I was younger I used to use Febreeze to freshen up my drapes or clothes in the closet etc.. Now that we're on a more budget friendly and natural path I've started to make my own refresher sprays. The recipe is simple! All you need is a clean squirt bottle, your favorite essential oils, and pure water. Fill your bottle with water and add some essential oils. You can add as little or as much as you want. I add a lot! Shake before each use. I love this for all kinds of things. Hair, clothes, linens. My girls love to clean with it. If you add some witch hazel, you have natural mosquito repellent. For this I use citronella oil, rosemary oil, and lavender oil. Works rather well.
Have a lovely weekend!!!
