It's time to freshen up the air in my home, but I'm not the "air freshener in a can" sort of girl. No, no. I detest the heavy odor they infuse into a room and the fact that it says fresh linen when it is, in fact, a toxic concoction of synthetic chemicals made to sort of smell fresh.
No, I'd much rather go the route of a natural air freshener - with the clean smell of citrus, the invigorating effects of mint, and the soothing benefits of lavender, rosemary, & pine. All are available from nature, all are very easy to grow, all are 100% organic, and all are surprisingly easy to make.
What's not to love?
In my quest for chemical-free alternatives, I searched the blogosphere to find a few simple recipes which use fresh fruits, herbs, and spices of which I could easily pluck from my gardens or purchase through my local grocer.
Happily, I came up with a few quick and easy recipes I thought I'd share.

Here in the South, we are on the verge of spring. A few more weeks of hibernation and we can fling open our windows with wild abandon. But until then, these simple recipes for natural air fresheners will give you & your stale rooms the power to push through these final days.
