Are You Still Using Toxic Air Fresheners In Your Home And Car? Find Out Why You Should Stop - Now!

Essential Oils As Healthy Air Fresheners

There’s a reason people say, “stop and smell the roses,” not “stop and smell the synthetic compounds that were formulated to smell like a rose.” Why settle for a synthetic substitute when you can have the real thing? It’s time to ditch commercial air fresheners and enjoy the fresh scents of nature!

I cringe when having to walk through the sea of synthetic air fresheners, toxin-filled candles or the ever-popular evergreen tree air freshener for the cars. It gives me a headache - always has. If a scent gives you a headache or can trigger a migraine, do you think it's good for your body? Listen to what your body is telling you - Stop - Stop Now!

There are a lot of reasons to avoid commercial air fresheners. Many contain phthalates, which is a group of chemicals that may affect human reproduction and development according the U.S. National Library of Medicine.* In an independent test, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) found phthalates in many commercial air fresheners, including some that did not list phthalates on the ingredients, as well as some that were labeled as “all natural” or “unscented.”** Yikes!

So let’s ditch the mystery musk and create some DIY air fresheners using the real thing—essential oils, distilled straight from nature. When something says - Birthday Cake is that natural?

Refresh your car

No one wants their car to smell like gym shoes and yesterday’s lunch. But when it comes to freshening your chariot, just say no to tree-shaped air fresheners hanging from your rearview mirror. Instead, create a natural air freshener with a few drops of oil!

Snag one of Young Living’s new Car Vent Diffusers (Item # 25110), which use the air flow from your vents to diffuse essential oils—no water, plug, or cord required! The easily adjustable design fits any car vent, and the cotton pads are reusable!
