Why Store-Bought Air Fresheners Are not Good for Us?
A lot of the air fresheners you find in markets today are filled with phthalates. Unfortunately, these dangerous chemicals have been linked with birth defects, problems with reproduction, and hormonal imbalances.
And, they are not just commonly present in air fresheners, but other products we regularly use, including perfumes, nail polish, and children’s toys. The phthalates are released into the air and we inhale them or absorb them through our skin.
When they enter the blood, they can cause hormone changes and other health problems and encourage asthma and allergy symptoms.
Knowing the negative effects of store-bought air fresheners, it is a good solution to reach for natural alternatives that we can make at home with ingredients we know. Here is what you will need for the preparation of the air freshener:
One jar with a lid
An empty candle container
Essential oils of your choice
