Homemade Deodorizer Spray

Wouldn’t you rather have a homemade deodorizer spray on hand that not only smells amazing, but also delivers protective properties within the air of your home? One that doesn’t just mask odors, but actually neutralizes them? One that doesn’t leave you at the mercy of an over-magnified scent, but a personally-controlled one instead? One that isn’t accompanied by a slew of other added chemical-ridden ingredients, but 3 simple natural ones that gets the job done and gives you peace of mind? Similar to my homemade laundry soap and homemade hand soap, cultivating my creative and DIY layer is fun and rewarding. Making simple, easy, and cost-effective modifications to what I use within my home, contributing to a cleaner environment, is empowering. The payoff of my effort puts a smile on my face. Certain store deodorizer sprays can be expensive, not to mention giving you a lot of toxin for your buck. This versatile spray can be used anywhere in your home.

More Than Words On A Page

I invited you to share in this blog journey, which involves sharing real, blog-life experiences, revealing there’s much more to it than just words on a page. It’s what I’m living and breathing. The frequency of my posts, obstacles, and learning to merge this new blog layer with all other layers are some examples. Perhaps you can relate, substituting yourself and your details as you read along. I’ve not been incredibly frequent with posting and there’s been gaps of delay. There’s much backend work with various topics to learn, personal things to pause to attend do, other life layers and a full-time job, responsibilities, life events, and unexpected curveballs all of which are just as much part of the process as is creating actual content.

It doesn’t take long to detect via my home page and “Finally Live” post that this process and goal has been a significant challenge. Ever demanding effort and growth is just as much part of the equation as ever present excitement…
