Few homes are without the wafting scent of ‘something’. We want to fill our homes with an aroma that brings personality, and conveys how clean it is. But what are we really breathing in?
Chemical filled plug-ins, toxic air freshener sprays and candles filled with paraffin are just some of the ways people try to give their home a beautiful aroma – but in reality these store bought products are merely contributing to the toxic load present in our homes. The chemicals found in these products are absolutely terrifying. From carcinogens to elements that irritate airways, most chemical ‘fresheners’ are anything but fresh. And I can barely make it through the cleaning and laundry aisle at the supermarket without getting a headache or watery eyes or a very irritated nose. I find myself holding my breath, and I cringe as I walk past with my children behind me.
Commercial products to watch out for –
- toilet sprays
- plug-in wall fresheners
- reed diffusers (containing synthetic ingredients)
- candles with synthetic fragrances
- perfumes and colognes
- insect sprays
Besides candles to use at night time, Natural Reed Diffusers are a fantastic way to perfume your home. Be kind to your body, and have the confidence knowing what is in your household products.
A lot of handmade Reed Diffusers contain a toxic base, and synergic fragrances. Our Reed Diffusers are made up of a pure carrier oil base with scents created from pure essential oils and aromatic isolates derived solely from natural, raw botanical sources. No synthetics, dyes, alcohol or toxins are used.
Organic Cove’s Reed Diffusers will passively scent your room and eliminate unpleasant household odours. The scent travels through bamboo sticks, lasting for months at a time. You will find our Natural Reed Diffusers much more subtle than commercial varieties. Turn the reeds daily for maximum scent throw.
Natural Body & Room Sprays are also a great way to make unwanted odours for linens, bathrooms and carpets.
