Synthetic air fresheners are some of the most toxic substances you can expose yourself to. The chemicals used in artificial fragrance have been linked to hormone disruption, endocrine system disruption, asthma and attention disorders. The good news is they are easy to replace. Save yourself time and money when you make your own air fresheners with Therapeutic food grade essential oils. Since many of the oils are certified safe as food additives, you can be confident using them safely in your kitchen around foods, children and pets. My favorite essential oils to use in a room spray are:
Lavender – spray your pillow at bedtime, freshen your bathroom, spray on sun-burned skin
Purifying essential oil blend – neutralizes odors from shoes, kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms. Kills bacteria in the air and on soft surfaces like furniture. Spray on the skin to soothe insect bites.
Cinnamon/Clove Immune Boosting essential oil blend – Create your own disinfecting spray powerful enough to kill bacteria in the kitchen and bathroom. Replace harmful bleach (linked to cancer) with this spray.Use this spray to disinfect sinks, toilets, countertops and produce.
