Did you know that breathing in, even small amounts, of spray air freshener can impact your health?
Studies show that people may have difficulty catching their breath, coughing, or choking when these mists get sprayed. Although these sprays are dangerous, many people continue to buy them to get rid of unpleasant odors.
If you’re looking for more natural home fragrance systems, there are a few to consider. Keep reading to learn about the best ways to improve your home!
One of the safest home fragrance systems you can try is reed diffusers.
Reed diffusers are long sticks that are placed in a narrow-neck bottle. The bottle typically has essential oils or other liquids with pleasant aromas. The reed sticks absorb the liquid and travel up, emitting a soft scent.
Reed diffusers are perfect for children’s rooms, college dorms, and other places with fire codes. Without the use of electricity or fire, these systems won’t create concerns.
There are two variations of wax warmers you can invest in and discover different types of scents.
Flame wax warmers are made with a pot or wax bowl that sits overtop a tealight candle. The heat from the flame warms the bowl and starts melting the wax to improve your home.
If you don’t want a flame in the house, you can also try electronic wax warmers. Some systems plug directly into the wall like a nightlight, while others can be displayed on the shelves.
The great thing about getting scent therapy from wax warmers is that you can blend your favorite scents. Be sure to invest in high-quality wax, cheaper options could increase harmful chemicals in the house.
Essential Oil Burner
An essential oil burner is comparable to a wax warmer.
These burners also use a tealight candle to warm the essential oils. Typically, you can use wax warmers to burn essential oils, but you should always confirm compatibility. When you add essential oil to the bowl, add a few drops of water to prevent the oil from burning.
Copper and porcelain bowls are recommended for essential oils since they can handle the high-heat.
If you’re constantly on the go but still want a delicious-smelling house, there is another alternative.
Scent machines can cover large areas and can increase humidity in the house. With cold-air technology, they emit a scented mist into the home. This is the perfect solution for compacting low humidity in the cooler months and can also help with breathing.
