The best way to freshen up your house is to open the windows and let the breeze flow through! But what do you do when it’s too hot? We’ve had ours closed up and the air conditioner running for DAYS! Here are 5 amazing and easy DIY ideas to keep your house smelling like Summer!
1. Stove Top Potpourri
Found on The Poor Sophisticate.
This simple idea includes using lemons, limes, oranges, and pineapple juice. Can you say Aloha? Can’t get more summer-time-ish than that!
2. Summer Oil Diffuser Recipes
Found on One Essential Community.
I love my Essential Oil Diffuser! I have to admit, though, that I use it much more in the Winter. Excuse me while I go mix up some sweet Summer scents!
3. Bake Vanilla Extract
Found on Life Hacker.
You know how it smells so good when you bake up some cookies? If there’s no time for cookie-baking, try baking a couple of caps full of vanilla extract (or other yummy Summer smelling oils) in a coffee cup or oven proof dish at 300 degrees for one hour.
4. Make a Candle
Found on A Pumpkin and A Princess.
Obviously, candles can make your home smell great! But if you’d like to try making your own, Crystal has shared a tutorial on how to make this lovely Lemon Beeswax Candle. It’s a wonderful gift idea, too!
5. Homemade Freshening Spray
Found on Cincy Shopper.
Make your own freshening spray at a fraction of the cost using Downy Unstopables and other common household ingredients. This is a great idea and leaves no residue.
