Natural shoe deodorizer

Natural shoe deodorizerThese gorgeous aromatic bags are great to pop into smelly shoes to act as a natural shoe deodorizer. You can make the bags yourself or buy them from a store such as a craft store. I usually buy the muslin bags from Mountain Rose Herbs who sell them at a great price in packs of 10.

Simply fill each bag with dried leaves such as lavender and rosemary. You can also add some dried lemon or orange peel. Next add a few drops of essential oils. Some great deodorizing essential oils are lemon, lavender, thyme and sage. Just use whatever you have in stock and whatever appeals to you most.

Pop the bags into any shoes that need refreshing and leave in there until the next use!

Autumn Potpourri

Autumn potpourriHomemade potpourris are so much nicer than the shop-bought versions. They are more natural and don’t contain any chemical or synthetic ingredients and the aroma of the natural essential oils is much more pleasant and long-lasting.

This recipe makes an excellent aromatherapy gift but it’s also nice to keep for yourself. Or why not double the recipe and keep one and give one away?


  • 2 cups dried golden mushrooms
  • 1 cup star anise
  • 1 cup dried wood shavings
  • 1 cup dried orange peel
  • ½ cup juniper berries
  • ¼ cup coriander seeds
  • 1 cup walnut shells
  • 2 tablespoons orris root powder
  • 8 drops coriander essential oil
  • 8 drops juniper essential oil
  • 8 drops orange essential oil


  • Place all the dried ingredients along with the orris root powder into a clean polythene bag and gently shake to mix.
  • Add the drops of essential oils, gently shake again to mix then seal the bag tightly and leave it to sit for 2 weeks to cure.
  • Shake the bag again after 2 weeks then pour all the ingredients into a pretty gift basket, bowl or box.
  • If you’re giving this as a gift, cover with colored cellophane and wrap with a bow. Attach a gift card with the name, key ingredients and the essential oil mix.
