Do you use room air fresheners in your home or workplace? If so, you might be surprised to learn the truth about these products that the fragrance industry doesn't want you to know. This graphic shows some of the names these chemical concoctions hide behind.
We all want our homes to smell fresh and clean, which is why the market for room air fresheners is booming. However, these products come with a dirty secret that the fragrance industry has been keeping from us.
On the surface, these products are marketed as "floral," "tropical," "woody," and other appealing scents. But the truth is, every room fragrance product is a blend of 30-60 synthetic fragrance chemicals. These chemicals are not found in nature and are constructed from petroleum by humans.
The fragrance industry has a library of 10,000 synthetic fragrance chemicals that they use to create these products. They might smell like nature, but they are toxic to humans and can cause headaches and respiratory problems. These synthetic fragrances are also known to trigger allergies and can be harmful to people with asthma, COPD, or pneumonia.
Despite knowing the risks, the fragrance industry continues to sell these toxic products, knowing that allergic reactions hamper their market growth. This $25 billion per year industry dominates the USA, and the truth about their products is something they don't want customers to know.
If you want to keep your home smelling fresh and clean without the risk of harmful chemicals, consider using natural alternatives like pure, authentic, unadulterated essential oils, baking soda, or vinegar. By taking this simple step, you can protect your health and create a safer and healthier environment for you and your loved ones.
Years ago I stopped using any products with "fragrance" in them when I learned about endocrine disruptors in chemically fragranced products. I had the worst allergies all the time, and since I've removed personal care products with chemical ingredients and all chemically fragranced products from my home, my allergies are under control. I was even able to stop doing allergy shots, got rid of all over-the-counter allergy meds and prescription meds! This was a big deal for me! My favorite way to make my home smell wonderful and inviting is by diffusing genuine, authentic, unadulterated essential oils in my home! My favorite bundle of oils and diffuser is For the Love of Lemons Bundle!
