With the changing seasons our thoughts often go to freshening up our home environment and what better and economical way than using some products we have in our home already and simply adding some essential oil for cleansing properties and aroma? Below is a simple recipe I use to freshen up the carpets in my home:

1 cup baking soda
6 drops essential oil of lemon
mix together and then sprinkle onto carpet

Let sit for approx.15 minutes and then vaccuum!

I've use this recipe many times to freshen my home and leaves a light, fresh aroma in the air.

This sounds like a really good recipe! There is a rug in our basement that could really use some freshening! Hilarious!

I have 2 pet rabbits, would the oils effect them in any way? Confused

Not is this case because it is very mild and all the baking soda will be vaccuumed up, so it would be okay! Plus it is only the EO of lemon so that is alright too.
