DIY Air Freshener Cabin in Woods

Cabin In The Woods DIY Air Freshener Spray

Yield 8 ounces



  1. Measure 4 ounces of Everclear (151 proof or higher) into a clean mason jar.
  2. Drop in essential oils and stir well to combine.
  3. Allow the jar to sit for several hours. (I let mine sit for 24 hours.)
  4. Using a funnel, pour perfume mixture into an 8-ounce spray bottle.
  5. Fill the rest of the way with distilled water, leaving room for the sprayer.
  6. Secure spray bottle top and shake to combine.
  7. Spray on linens or in the air as an air freshener.


Because this DIY air freshener recipe contains alcohol, it can be damaging to wood surfaces or some countertop surfaces. Keep out of the reach of children and be careful not to spray near eyes, mouth, or nose.

If you would like a brighter smelling blend, you can always swap vetiver with lemon or another citrus oil. Also, any of the conifer oils (Siberian fir, black spruce) can be replaced with whatever conifer you have on hand (Balsam fir, cypress, white fir, pine, etc.). They will have a slightly different aroma, but still that iconic evergreen scent.
