Are you a pet owner? Let’s face it we may love our pets, but there are a lot of odors that pet owners must deal with. Did you know that CitruSolution is extremely effective in removing pet stains and odors? When we combine Odorcide 210, a deodorizer, and Benefect, a botanical antimicrobial, with our already powerful citrus-based cleaning solution, pet odors will be entirely removed, which also serves as a deterrent for future accidents.

During fall and winter, you may be spending more time indoors. Artificial fragrances, especially plug-in types of air fresheners, are full of chemicals and candles can produce a lot of smoke indoors. Here are a few tips for making your house smell great, naturally!

Make Your Own Stovetop Fall Scent

Even if the temperatures aren’t cool outside, certain smells evoke memories of fall — cinnamon, apples, pumpkin. Many people can’t tolerate the artificial scents in candles or chemicals in home sprays. A safer, natural alternative is to make your own solution to simmer on your stovetop. A simmer pot recipe with fresh orange peels and cinnamon will have your home smelling like fall in minutes.

Fill a small saucepan with water and add the orange peels and cinnamon sticks. Bring it to a boil and then turn the heat down to simmer. Simmer for about 20 minutes then add more water if needed. You can even get creative and add additional fall scents to the mixture, such as apple peels, whole cloves or vanilla.

Add Essential Oils to Your Air Filter

Another great way to add scents to your home naturally is to place a few drops of essential oil on to your air filter. When air blows through the vent, the scent of the oil (whether it’s lemon, mint, or lavender) will permeate your entire house. You can choose a fall or holiday inspired oil blend in the winter.

Make Your Own Reed Diffuser

Add fragrance to any room with an easy-to-make reed diffuser. You may have seen them at home decor stores for as much as $20, but you can make one yourself! Just gather a few ingredients: a glass container with a small opening, rattan reeds, alcohol, almond oil and the essential oil of your preference. Lavender essential oil is a perfect calming scent for a common area or bedroom, while lemon essential oil is perfect for the kitchen.

Here are simple directions: In a glass measuring cup, add 1/4 cup of your almond oil (your carrier oil). Add about 25-30 drops of essential oil and a tiny amount of rubbing alcohol and stir thoroughly. Be sure to keep stirring until it’s all incorporated well. Add the mixture to your jar and insert the sticks. Swirl the jar and flip the sticks over about every week or so until the scent is gone.
