Using fragrances in our homes may smell good, but many of those products are toxic air pollutants. Companies that make fragrances go largely unregulated, and they don’t have to specify what’s in their products or how they can be harmful to your health.
Essential oils are a non-toxic alternative to many home and medicinal items. They are wonderfully versatile, and can be used for air purifying, medicinal purposes, air freshening, supplementation, cleaning, pain relief – the list goes on and on. You can even use essential oils to change your mood and impact you physical and mental health! Need some energy? Look for some orange essential oils! Want to relax? Lavender oil is a great option! The process of intentionally selecting oils for your space can be a fun act of self-care!
Before buying and using it’s important to note that not all essential oils essential oils are made equal – many oils are extremely diluted, or even mixed with toxic chemicals. They can be marketed as a wellness item when in reality, they aren’t – at all. So it is important to do research on the oils and how to use them before you begin using them.
If you have any questions about a specific oil and it’s safety, we recommend contacting the company directly or contacting us via our contact page and we will do our best to help you!
