Several essential oils are effective deodorising agents and can be used in room sprays to neutralise cooking, smoking or other domestic odours.
The most effective deodorising essential oils is Bergamot oil though Lavender oil, Juniperberry oil and Cypress oil are also useful. Bergamot oil has the advantage of a fresh sitrus fragrance acceptable by most people and both sexes. The disadvantage of this particular essential oil is that it can increase the risk of sun burning in hot weather therefore if the skin is to be exposed to sunshine an alternative oil should be used.
