Spraying an air freshener like Febreze, around your home may seem like a harmless act, but instead of cleaning the air, these air fresheners are actually further polluting the air with 89 harmful contaminates including BHT, acetaldehyde, propylene glycol, 1,3-dichloro-2-propanol, #formaldehyde, and fragrance just to name a few.
Luckily for us it's actually extremely easy to make our own air fresheners using essential oils. Many essential oils actually purify, freshen, and cleanse the air, even killing air born #viruses, #bacteria, and mold. Using essential oils to keep things smelling good is also much cheaper than continuously buying new air fresheners since one bottle of essential oil can make many batches of air freshener. So instead of poisoning the air your family lives in with Febreze, purify it with essential oils.
Using an air diffuser is an amazing way to keep your house smelling great all the time. Add a few drops of a great smelling essential oil and fill the rest with water. When you turn on your diffuser it will continuously refreshen the air for several hours.
