Room fresheners and deodorizers not only add a pleasant scent to the room, if they contain alcohol, they also have antiseptic qualities. Ordinary potpourris can go a long way in freshening the air in the house. Cedar chips also make great room fresheners.

4 ounces cedarwood chips
2 ounces sandalwood chips

Mix ingredients thoroughly, and place in an open dish somewhere they won’t be disturbed.

To make liquid room deodorizers, you will need:

A Measuring cup
A glass jar with lid

To make your own chlorophyl to use in the recipes, gather some fresh grass clippings and put them in a jar. Make sure you gather from an area that hasn’t been sprayed with insecticide. Pour a pint of alcohol over the grass clippings. Add 2 tablespoons liquid vegetable oil. Seal jar very tightly. Shake well and let it sit for 4 days. Make sure you shake the jar a couple of times every day. When the liquid is dark green, strain it into another jar and seal. This tincture can be used with the recipes.
