Natural Carpet Deodorizer Recipe

Aromatherapy Carpet Deodorizer Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 5 drops Lemon
  • 20 drops Lavender
  • One 16 ounce box of baking soda

When using essential oils, be sure to follow all safety precautions and avoid essential oils that are contraindicated for anyone living in your household.

Directions

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. 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

This deodorizer recipe should only be used on carpets that are not fragile and that will not be damaged from use of the deodorizer. Be sure your vacuum is powerful enough to be capable of vacuuming up the deodorizer.

Lightly 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.

General Safety Information

These recipes are offered for educational purposes only. Before using any essential oil, carefully read AromaWeb's Essential Oil Safety Information page. For in-depth information on oil safety issues, read Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young. Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. For general dilution information, read AromaWeb's Guide to Diluting Essential Oils. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children and consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children, the elderly, if you have medical issues or are taking medications.
