Who doesn't love walking into a fresh-smelling room? Who loves walking into a room full of hazardous chemicals?
The truth is that chemical fragrances and perfumes in air-fresheners products are full with very dangerous chemicals.
Phthalates compounds are among the favored chemicals for fragrances because of their ability to make odor stick around.
What is the problem?
Phthalates are neurotoxins that accumulate in the tissue of human and wildlife and are linked to endocrine disruptions, developmental and reproductive disorders, and cancer.
The National Resources Defense Council produced the following list that indicates the presence or absence of phthalates in common air fresheners:
- Open your windows
- Plants are natural air-freshening products
- Use room diffusers with essential oils
- Make your own air-freshener ( I'll show you how)
- Use Incense
- Chemically free air freshener (try CitrusMagic.com)
