One of the ways that you can use them is by adding a couple of drops to the baking soda and mixing the two before you put it on the carpet. Once you’ve got it mixed, you’re good to evenly spread it across your carpet. Let it sit for about 30 minutes, then once the time is up you’re free to vacuum. This process will leave your home smelling like the essential oils you decided to put in there.
