Against The Grain
Why you should be using a homemade air freshener: Synthetic fragrances may be the most common type of chemical in your house. Air Fresheners, plug-in type deodorizers and scented candles can emit hundreds of harmful chemicals known to be carcinogens, respiratory and endocrine disrupters, and reproductive toxicants, even at low levels. In 2014, Scientific American reported that a study in the journal, Environmental Health Perspectives, shows a strong link between exposure to phthalates (chemicals that are found in air fresheners and often plastics) during pregnancy and the child’s future risk of asthma.
With this chemical free, homemade air freshener, you can rest assured that your home smells amazing and your lungs stay safe!
Ultrasonic diffusion combines the advantages of a humidifier, air purifier, atomizer and aromatherapy diffuser into one by breaking a mixture of essential oils and water into millions of micro-particles and dispersing them into the air. Diffusing essential oils provides a safe and effective method for purifying and scenting the air in your home as a fantastic alternative to harmful air fresheners, candles and plug-ins.
