Scent-Sational Carpet Freshener

Scent-Sational Carpet Freshener

Commercial carpet fresheners are often packed with synthetic fragrances, allergens, and potentially harmful chemicals, posing a risk to those with allergies or respiratory concerns. This simple recipe offers a more natural and safer solution.

What you will need


- 1/2 to 1 cup Bicarb Soda

- 10-15 drops essential oils of your choice


- Bowl

- Spoon

- Salt Shaker (optional)

Bicarb Soda (also known as Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking sod) is a household staple great for absorbing odours. It also has a gentle abrasive quality that can help lift dirt and stains.

Not only do essential oils smell amazing, but they also have natural cleaning properties that can help disinfect and deodorise your carpets. Lavender, lemongrass, and lemon are all popular choices.

What's next?

To make your carpet freshener, simply mix the bicarb and essential oil in a bowl then stir well.

Sprinkle the mixture very lightly onto your carpet, focusing on high-traffic areas and any spots that need extra attention. Let it sit for at least 15-30 minutes, then vacuum it up thoroughly.

You can transfer the mixture into a jar with a shaker lid, such as an empty spice jar or simply throw on some gloves and use your hands. 

Happy Days

Not only will your carpets smell amazing, but they'll also feel softer and look brighter. Plus, you can rest easy knowing that you're using natural ingredients that are safe for your home and the environment. Give this natural carpet freshener a try and see the difference it makes!
