DIY : Natural Mattress Refresher

Ever since I introduced Essential Oils into our life, I've been on a bit of a mission to replace anything in our home that is chemical-based or contains toxins. 

The problem is that natural, chemical-free products can be hard to find and often come with a hefty price tag. So this morning, I decided to get a little crafty and create my own completely natural mattress/fabric refresher using only a handful of ingredients. 

Now, our master bedroom smells so clean and fresh that I want to spend the entire afternoon lounging around in bed!

You will need:

  • 1 cup bicarbonate of soda

  • 10 drops of Lavender essential oil

  • 1-2 drops of peppermint or eucalyptus essential oil

What to do:

  • Mix all the ingredients together

  • Sprinkle on your mattress 

  • Leave for at least 1 hour (preferably longer)

  • Vacuum up the powder


That's it! Super simple and yet totally effective.

Lavender is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities and using peppermint or eucalyptus adds a fresh scent, but you can choose any oils you like. My current favourite blend is Lavender and Wild Orange.
