In honor of the new year, we have created a new series on this blog. Our Natural Focus series will feature projects, products and activities that help our readers incorporate the green philosophies we share at MyChelle into their own lives. Enjoy!

During the cold, early months of the year – when we tend to spend more time indoors than out, with the windows and doors shut tight – air fresheners help to freshen up the stale, stuffy air trapped within our homes. However, artificially scented products can contain harmful ingredients. Instead, try creating your own room scents with spices, herbs and fruit from your local grocery store!

The Yummy Life has a great step-by-step how-to complete with five delicious recipes that look beautiful, and are sure to make your home smell great – naturally!

Have you ever made an all-natural room scent at home? If so, we’d love to hear your results in the “comments” section below!
