Stop Buying Air Freshener! Make This 3-Ingredient Alternative for an Amazing Smelling Home

loading...


In this day and age, people are more and more aware of what they are putting in their bodies. They eat organic, practice healthy, balanced diets, and ensure they are properly hydrated amongst other practices.

But what you might not realize is the kind of toxins you’re putting into your body from things that aren’t eaten.

Febreze’s advertising encourages you to “breathe happy”, but the list of unpronounceable chemicals and toxins in Febreze is enough to make anybody feel anything but happy.

Stale Air

Some of the chemicals found in Febreze are especially harmful to young children. Benzisothiazolinone is a known immune system toxin as well as a mutagenic, causing DNA damage in humans. Young children are still developing so exposure to this chemical affects them more adversely than adults.

There are also multiple ingredients that act as neurotoxins: BHT, ethyl acetate, benzaldehyde, and other ingredients in Febreze are known neurotoxins. Even the “fragrance” listed on the Febreze bottle is known as a neurotoxin.

There are certain ingredients included in the Febreze formula that are known to be cancer causing as well. Acetaldehyde, 1.3-Dichloro-2-propanol, propylene glycol, and other unnatural sounding components in Febreze have links to cancer.

All Natural Air Freshener

The best method is always the natural method. There is no need to buy products laden with harmful ingredients when you can make a healthy alternative at home, with just a handful of ingredients.

These are the things you’ll need to create your own natural air freshener:

  • 1 tbsp of baking soda
  • 2 cups of distilled water
  • 10 drops of essential oil (you can pick whichever scent you want, or try mixing your favorites)
  • Clean spray bottle

Mix the baking soda and essential oil in a bowl with a fork to keep the oil suspended in the water. Pour the mixture into the spray bottle (a funnel works wonders) and top off with the distilled water. Shake before every use and enjoy clean, fresh air at home.

Now you can breathe more easily with your natural air freshener!

Don’t bring home chemical-heavy air fresheners ever again. Keep yourself, your loved ones, and your home happy, healthy, and lively.
