Clothes in a Drawer with Scented Drawer Liners and Essential Oils

Are you tired of opening your drawers only to be met with a musty or stale smell? Fortunately, there are some easy and natural ways to make your drawers smell nice. Here are some tips to get you started:

1. Enhancing Drawer Fragrance with Essential Oils

Essential oils are a fantastic way to add a pleasant fragrance to your drawers. Simply add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a cotton ball or a piece of cloth and place it in the drawer. Lavender essential oil is a great option for a relaxing and soothing scent that can also help to repel insects. Plus, lavender has antibacterial properties that can help keep your clothes fresh and clean. Other great options for drawer fragrances include lemon, peppermint, and eucalyptus essential oils.


Our lavender essential oil is produced from steam distillation from our own lavender fields, ensuring the highest quality and purity. 

2. Using Baking Soda as a Drawer Deodorizer

Baking soda is a versatile and natural deodorizer that can help absorb any unpleasant odors in your drawers. Its alkaline properties help to neutralize acidic odors and absorb moisture, making it a perfect solution for musty drawers. To use, simply sprinkle a small amount of baking soda in the bottom of each drawer and let it sit for a few hours before vacuuming it up. This will not only help eliminate any unwanted smells, but also help keep your drawers dry and free of moisture. Baking soda is an affordable and eco-friendly solution for maintaining a fresh and clean wardrobe.

3. Cedar Blocks: Nature's Odor Eliminator for Fresh Closets

Cedar blocks are renowned for their ability to eliminate wardrobe odors and keep closets fresh. This natural solution works by emitting a pleasant aroma that effectively masks unpleasant smells, while also absorbing excess moisture that can lead to musty odors. Additionally, cedar contains natural oils and compounds that repel pests such as moths and insects, further protecting your clothing. Simply place cedar blocks in drawers or hang them in closets to enjoy their refreshing scent and odor-fighting properties. With cedar blocks, you can maintain a clean, fresh-smelling wardrobe effortlessly and naturally.
