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.
