Natural Carpet Deodorizer Recipe
Add the baking soda to a large bowl and then add the essential oils. Be sure to mix the oils into the baking soda well. Since lemon essential oil is normally yellow, it is essential that it is mixed well into the baking soda so that no undiluted lemon oil stains your carpet. This blend may be adapted to use your favorite essential oils. After you have blended the oils into the baking soda, the deodorizer can be stored in a glass jar or airtight container.
Instructions for Use
Sprinkle the deodorizer onto your carpet. Several of AromaWeb's advertisers sell powder sifter containers suitable for body powders and carpet deodorizers. Alternatively, you may use a clean, discarded spice container that has holes that permit you to "shake" the deodorizer onto your carpet). Allow the deodorizer to sit on your carpet for 10-20 minutes and then vacuum normally.
