How I Make My Pot-Pourri:2 SUPER Simple Recipes.

Synthetic air fresheners sold in supermarkets are far from natural. ..

They contain an arsenal of products that are dangerous to health, such as formaldehyde, which is carcinogenic!

So why not make your own natural air freshener without chemicals?

What do you say? Don't worry, it's quite simple!

Here are 2 super simple potpourri recipes to clean the air and leave a sweet smell in your home. Watch:

Recipe n°1

In a bowl or a small container, I put flowers or leaves of fragrant plants in bulk.

For example, I love to put rose petals, lavender, lilac flowers, mint, thyme or rosemary leaves, or even orange or lemon peel.

Depending on the choice of flowers or leaves, your potpourri will have different virtues.

Stimulating with lemon, soothing with lavender...

Now all you have to do is place the bowl of potpourri in the room of your choice.

Breathe, you'll see how good it smells naturally :-)

Recipe n°2

This second recipe allows you to concoct your own scented oils.

To do this, simply take an airtight jar and fill it with flowers, leaves or fruits of your choice.

Me in my potpourri, I put citrus peel, eucalyptus leaves, rosemary, thyme and peppermint.

Then I completely cover the potpourri with vegetable oil, for example almond oil.

I let it macerate well for 3 weeks and I filter this mixture with a fine sieve.

All that remains is to place a few drops on a fabric, a fragrance diffuser, a porous stone or even in a bowl of boiling water.

Very practical to perfume the kitchen or even the toilets.


There you go, with these two simple recipes, your home will smell good naturally without risk to your health and that of your family :-)

Besides, it's still much more economical than buying deodorant bombs at the supermarket, isn't it?

For the Christmas holidays, there is also this easy recipe that smells so good!

Additional advice

In any case, to properly sanitize and purify the air in your home, we can only advise you to air the rooms at least 15 minutes twice a day.

It's more effective than just a trickle of air all day.

And above all, less dangerous than so-called air purifying products full of chemical ingredients.
