The first thing mummy bean noticed, when we started to clean with more natural products was that things smelt different. They didn’t smell bad they just didn’t smell flowery anymore. Now we don’t need everything to smell of flowers, in fact we are quite used to things just smelling of fresh air now but occasionally we need an air freshener. Mummy bean says it’s something to do with my nappies. I’m not sure what she means.
She says she doesn’t want a little bean like me breathing in the chemicals that make things smell flowery so instead she’s found another way.
She takes an old take away container, fills it with hot water and puts a few drops of essential oil in the water. It floats on the top and eventually it floats into the air. Mummy bean says this is called evaporation. You could also use an oil burner but if you have little beans around this is a much safer way and just as effective.
You can get essential oils from lots of different places and they all do different things. Some are calming like lavender, some are a natural antiseptic like Tea tree. We use Rose Geranium because it smells lovely and is uplifting.
We’re giving away a 10ml bottle of our favourite oil to one lucky bean so you can give this natural air freshener a go yourselves. Because it’s an oil, we can only send it to UK bean’s. Use the link below. Good luck.
We’d love to know what your favourite essential oil is so let us know in the comments.
