I was recently looking for an alternative to my handful of usuals for a baby shower gift. I thought it would be fun to give the baby’s mama some kind of aromatherapy as part of the gift.
I looked through my Olivia + S Little Things to Sew book and found this adorable bath mitt to make. And I thought a little homemade air freshener would be perfect next to a diaper pail. Caroline helped me choose the oil, orange.
Here’s how you can make Orange Baby Air Freshener:
- Drop about 10-20 drops of Orange Essential Oil (I get mine here) into a dark glass bottle. (You can find them here.)
- Add distilled water to fill remaining bottle.
- Put on spray top, shake and mist in the air.
There are many oils that would smell good, be aromatherapeutic, and work beautifully for a personal air freshener. Some other oils I could of used on hand were lavender, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, and pine. I’d like to make a variety of little bottles for different rooms in my house.
For the baby shower gift, I stuffed the bath mitt with some baby shampoo and tied the air freshener around the cuddly bear.
What do you think? Easy stuff, huh?
