A few sage leaves can eliminate the smell of food, while adding an aromatic touch to the kitchen.

When it comes to scenting the home, many people tend to use commercial air fresheners that are usually toxic and excessively expensive. They completely ignore that aromatic plants can come to the rescue.

In this case, we are talking specifically about sage. Sage is a fresh-smelling herb that can be used anywhere in the house. If used in the kitchen, it can eliminate lingering food odors once and for all.

In this article you will discover how to use sage leaves to neutralize bad kitchen odors and, at the same time, spread a fresh aroma.

How to make homemade sage deodorant

To eliminate the smell of cooking or fried fish, I suggest that you prepare this homemade air freshener at home to spray throughout the kitchen. To do it, start by washing 25 sage leaves well. Next, add them to a saucepan with a liter of water. If you want, you can add lemon zest. Next, turn on the heat and bring everything to a boil.

When the water begins to heat up, add 10 drops of sage essential oil, 15 drops of lavender essential oil and 10 drops of rosemary essential oil. Let it boil for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it cool for a moment.

Next, transfer the resulting mixture to a spray bottle and spray a little around the kitchen to eliminate bad odors.

You can also use this homemade mixture to remove grease from dirty kitchen surfaces, such as stoves, hoods and ovens.

Make scented sachets

To get rid of bad odors in your kitchen and give it a touch of freshness, why don’t you make scented sachets?

Take 4 sage leaves and wash them to remove any traces of dirt. Next, place them in a bag in a corner of the kitchen where bad odors escape. You can also place scented sachets in closets and wardrobes.

For a more intense aroma, combine sage leaves with dried lavender flowers. The aroma is simply impressive.

Make a decorative bouquet

To make a decorative bouquet, take 4 sage sprigs and tie them with twine.

Next, add 2 drops of sage essential oil to your bouquet and place it in the place where bad odors are most present.
