2) Spring Room Sprays (aka homemade air fresheners)

You can convert any of the above spring diffuser blends into a room spray by …

  • starting with an 8 oz spray bottle
  • add 1 oz witch hazel
  • fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water
  • add 20-25 drops essential oil (that’s 4 times the # of drops in the diffuser blends – click here for spring diffuser recipes)
  • shake well to mix
  • spray around room to bring the fresh scent of spring inside

4) Homemade Headache Balm (recipe here)

Here in Kansas, the weather in the springtime can go from hot to cold and back to hot a few times in any given week.  Those big temperature swings wreak havoc with my sinuses.  So I’m very thankful to have this handy homemade headache balm.  A little dab rubbed into my temples and the back of my neck, and headache is gone.

5) Keep Bugs Away

Before moving to Kansas, we lived in Minnesota, home of 10,000 lakes and zillions and zillions of mosquitos.  So we got used to fighting bugs and figuring what works to keep those little guys away.  Here are my tried-and-tested natural bug repellents.
