Homemade “Febreze” Fabric & Air Refresher

Homemade Febreze with only 2 ingredients! It smells so good & will refresh your whole house. Use as fabric refresher, air freshener, or household cleaner!

I have used this simple little concoction for a few years now & as I was refilling my bottle, I decided to hop on here real quick & tell you about what I refer to as ‘My Homemade Febreze’.

Now, it doesn’t smell like Febreze or have any of the ingredients that Febreze has. So, if you’re expecting a copycat recipe – that’s not what this is. It smells great, with a really ‘clean’ smell to it. And I use it much like I’d use febreze fabric refresher or any other air freshener, except I also use this to wipe down my counters & such too. It makes the whole house smell really good.

Plus, it’s super easy with only 2 ingredients mixed together in a spray bottle. I use Purify essential oil from Eden’s Garden that I purchase on Amazon. I have never found another essential oil that smells as ‘clean’ as this one does & I adore it. This isn’t any sort of sponsored post whatsoever – and the company isn’t one of those essential oil companies that you have to purchase through a home sales representative. You can get it in a 1oz size here & you can get a large bottle of it (4oz) here. I usually get the large bottles because the value is usually better that way – and since I know I love it, I know I’m gonna use all of it. But, if you’ve never tried it before – a 1oz bottle might be better so you can be sure that you really like it first.


The ‘recipe’ is just water with the Purify essential oil added. I usually use a ratio of 1 cup of water to about 12 drops of essential oil… but you can always add a little more or less if you like. I just pop it into my spray bottle & spray it around the house for an instant refresher. I also like to use this combination in my diffuser. It just smells so clean.
