Raise you hands if you have scented candles, plug-ins or room spray around the house? Okay, now go collect those items and toss them! [Not kidding.] Scented air fresheners are a multi-billion dollar industry which makes my skin crawl. They mask odors in your home by overpowering them with stronger [and more toxic] odors. And we are breathing in toxic chemicals in the process. Artificial fragrances contain a multitude of chemicals including phthalates – which are endocrine disrupters. Endocrine disrupters mess with our hormones.
I get it, though. Who wants their house to smell?! No worries – I’ve got a non-toxic solution for you. And bonus: it’s way cheaper than all of those candles, sprays, reeds, and plug-ins.
You can clean and scent the air with essential oils. Essential oils are totally natural [as long as you select 100% pure oils] and they can actually CLEAN the air instead of just overpowering the odor. Creating your own non-toxic room spray couldn’t be easier. You just need: essential oils, filtered water and a glass spray bottle [or diffuser].
Here is one of my favorite combinations for a non-toxic room spray but you can mix and match your favorite oils! Some other options that I love are: Lemongrass, Purify, Balance, Lime, Grapefruit, Bergamot, and Lavender.
20 drops Lemon essential oil (detoxifying, uplifting)
20 drops Wild Orange essential oil (purifying, energizing)
20 drops On Guard essential oil (purifying, immunity support)
Add essential oils to a glass spray bottle
Fill with filtered water
Shake, shake, shake
Spray around the house
