This is a really cute idea. I know that baking soda will absorb odors, and that essential oils are nice for adding a nice scent to the room, but I have to wonder if adding the essential oil directly to the baking soda wouldnt cancel out the effect of the essential oils. Has anyone tried this and can answer if that would be an issue?

Does this take the smell out of a room, or does it actually put a good smell in the room? I know baking soda is a deodorizer. I have to agree with Hannah. Typically, I use baking soda in the fridge and to deodorize my mattresses, but that is about it. I think this will be a neat craft to try.

This is really helpful since I have been looking other home remedies for deodorizing our room. I have been using baking soda for cleaning our stainless utensils and pans, shoes and for deodorizing the fridge. I never thought that just adding scented oil will make our room smell fresh and clean.

I love this idea! I like that you can create just the scent you love. I might try some light floral scents in spring, then use cinnamon, etc., for winter months.

I love making my own cleaners and air fresheners! This recipe for Homemade Air Fresheners is great! I use more essential oil then the recipe calls for, about 20 to 40 drops per 1/2 cup of baking soda! I also made my wholes bigger in my cover paper using a whole punch making a nice star design. I shake mine every day and have had to re-add more oil after a few days. I have these in every room of my home. Not only for the holidays, it's a ever day item. Thank you so much for sharing this free craft.

What an adorable gift idea that these "Homemade Air Fresheners" will make. I am always scratching my head when it comes to small gifts that are gender neutral and can be given as a host/hostess gift that would also be appreciated for its usefulness. I can't wait to give this a try. I do wonder though if the pleasant fragrance will last? Does it depend on what type of fragrance or brand one uses?

I have tried this many times with different scents and it just doesn't work. It smells for the first few minutes and then nothing after that. I held it right up to my nose and nothing. I tried using a fork and stirred up the baking soda and still nothing. I don't know what I am doing wrong.

This is a concern I had with this project. Baking soda neutralizes odors. Adding the essential oil directly to the baking soda seems like it would just cancel out the scent.

Works great thank you

I tried this and the smell wasn't stronge enough to smell let alone freshen the room.
