We have three dogs-this usually means that we have a lot of for and a faint odor of wet dog in our house.  Back in the day I would use Scentsy (still do actually) but I also like to use this homemade recipe to freshen up our carpets and give our house a fresh boost.  Here’s what you’ll need:

  • An empty container (such as an empty Parmesan cheese or spice container, or any other container of your choice
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • Lemon essential oil
  • Lavender essential oil

I’m not brand specific to any essential oil company, but I do prefer doterra or young living since I have several friends that sell them and I like to support them when I can.

Place 3/4 c of the baking soda in the container then add about 5 drops of each EO (You can add more or less EO depending on how strong you want the scent, when in doubt start with less and add more) to the container.  Top off with reminding baking soda, mix with a fork to avoid clumping, then place cover on container.  Sprinkle on your carpet or furniture as desired, allow to sit 5 minutes then vacuum and bask in that lovely scent.
