48-natural-air-freshenersHow can we avoid aerosols that are very harmful to our health? The answer is simple; you need to prepare your own air fresheners.

Make your own air-fresheners by combining equal parts lemon juice and water, pour the mixture into a spray bottle and use it whenever is needed.

You may also use spices that you like to prepare deodorizers. You will need a sauce pan with water. Add all kinds of spices that you like and simmer them together with water.

You may simmer cinnamon, cloves, fresh ginger, and the herbs of your choice.

Mint also works great if simmered with other spices. It adds summer smell to your home.

While preparing these deodorizers, you may also add essential oils that are considered to be your favorite.

The quick way to refresh your room is to place there a cotton ball that is soaked in vanilla extract or in other essential oil.

If you have a small bowl, you may just pour a little bit of vanilla extract in it and enjoy the odor in your home.

House plants are also a great answer.

But keep in mind that not all of them smell nicely.
