Frankly Speaking Friday- Refreshing Powder

Due to illness I will continue the exotic oils next week, and today I will leave you with another recipe. Have a great weekend! 

Refreshing (Carpet) Powder

Use this powder on your carpets, rugs, bedding and cloth covered furniture. It will deodorize and freshen as it  naturally repels fleas. To use, sprinkle it over the chosen surface and leave it sit for at least 20 minutes, then vacuum it up. For continued protection, use this regularly once a week.

You will need
2 1/4 Cups of Baking soda 
2 Tbs. Borax
2 Tbs. (finely ground) Dried Tansy flowers 
2 Tbs. (finely ground) Dried Lavender buds 
1/2 tsp. Orris root powder
1/2 Tbs. witch hazel
1/2 Tbs. cedar wood essential oil 
1/4 Tbs. lemon essential oil 
1/4 Tbs. lavender essential oil

Mix all of the dry ingredients together, except for the baking soda. Mix the essential oils into the dry ingredients, making sure to mix well, then dump into a large plastic bag. Then add the baking soda into the bag, seal and shake well. You can keep this mixture in any air-tight container, but one with a shaker lid will make applying it a bit easier!
