Lemon oil give this simple recipe an amazing scent.
There is much research being posted on the Internet these days that states some alarming (but not shocking information). We all love to use deoderizing powder on our carpets. These commercially produced powders are designed to be vacuumed up completely. However, just like Mr. Dyson tells us on his commercials, many vacuums just do not have enough suction power to remove all the powder from the carpet fibers. The danger is that the commercially available carpet powders contain synthetic, man made petrochemicals. The risk is that our children and pets are down there playing on the carpet, and that we are exposing them to these harsh chemicals.
You’ll for sure love this carpet powder, it is all natural. And making it is a snap, as there is only two ingredients. The first ingredient is baking soda, a trusted ingredient used for everything from deodorizing our fridges to brushing our teeth to its exfoliating properties we made use of in our lavender oil facial scrub.
This lemon oil recipe is so easy to make, it will only take a few minutes to complete. That means you have extra time to make it ADORABLE! To that end, we used these amber glass apothecary bottles and some hip kraft labels. The trick that put it over the top was wrapping the neck in a couple of feet of jute twine. There is nothing exceptionally special about lemon oil that makes it a requirement for this recipe. We just think lemon smells like “clean house” so we chose it to be featured in this carpet powder recipe. However, you may wish to use lavender, eucalyptus, or any other essential oil that you feel gives a better scent profile.
