So Let's Talk Scents
Updated: Jul 27, 2020
I know you want your home to smell good. I mean I want that too. There is so much traffic in and out of our homes that we naturally bring the day home with us. If you are anything like me you don't want to come home smelling the scent of todays long, exhausting, dirty, complicated, and uneventful work load.
But we also don't want to come home and introduce chemicals to our bodies that are super harmful and even deadly. Here are a few things that I found out about scents and fragrances while doing my research. When you see the words 'Fragrance' or 'Parfum' you can assume that it has hundreds of synthetic chemicals. And it's not required for them to be disclosed or even tested for your safety. To add insult to injury many ingredient list that say "unscented" are full of fragrant chemicals that are neutralized or masked odors. These chemicals, such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, glycol ethers, free radicals, ultrafine particles, and other volatile organic compounds, created secondary reaction products. and can cause everything from headaches, difficulty breathing, earaches, diarrhea in babies, liver, kidney, and central nervous system damage, and even cancer.
Yes, that's a lot. I know. But it gets worse. Did you know that these chemicals are even harmful unused? Think about that pretty, very scented candle you have in your home that you have sitting out right now? Yup that one, well did you know that even when you don't light that candle it is still connecting with air particles in your home and transferring those dangerous chemicals all over your house? Well, now you know. But I didn't come here just to give you all this bad news and no resolution. Here are a few things that you can do to bring fresh scent back into your home and still keep it safe.
