How to make a non toxic Weed Killer?

We are all looking to make our environment safer for our personal health, but also for future generation. Getting rid of those unwanted and invasive weeds growing in our backyard is not an easy one. Often, we find ourselves having to resort to armful chemicals to do the job!

Here is a simple recipe that won't break your budget, and will certainly not affect your health or the earth:


  • Add 1 cup of white vinegar and 1 Tbs of Citric Acid to a spray bottle. 
  • Close lid and shake gently until citric acid dissolves.
  • Open lid and ad 1/4 teaspoon of environmentally friendly dishwashing liquid.
  • Shake very gently to avoid frothing.
  • You can now spray it regularly on your unwanted weeds.


How to make your own natural Air Freshener:

  • Add 2 tbs of Natural Sodium Bicarbonate to a bowl. 
  • Add 10 drops of lavender Essential Oil, 10 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil, 10 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil, 10 drops of Lemon Essential Oil (or Peppermint Essential Oil). All these essential oils have anti-bacterial properties and a lovely relaxing and refreshing scent. They blend well together,  but you can choose to ad your own favourite essential oils.
  • Combine the mixture with a wooden spoon.
  • Pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Make sure you use a mist spray nozzle, so your air freshener will spray lightly and evenly throughout the room, without making a mess.
  • Fill up the rest of the bottle with purified water or even better, distilled water.
  • Shake well. Your air freshener is ready to use.
