Aromatherapy Air fresheners
Once you get accustomed to the natural
and marvelously real aromas of essential oils, you will never be duped into
buying chemical ones again. Essential oils are highly concentrated, fragrant,
and rich in chemical compounds of the mother plant. They have distilled in
them the antibacterial power to kill germs as well as lift our spirits. They
are fun and easy to use. I cannot watch a TV commercial for room fresheners and sprays without thinking
what a waste of money they are. Even worse though is how negatively they affect
the atmosphere and health of your home, with a special circle in hell reserved
for those companies selling chemicals in an aerosol spray can and having the
nerve to call them 'air fresheners'..
The most common ways to diffuse oils are in aroma lamps, electric room diffusers,
(great for office and bathrooms where you don't want to leave a candle unattended),
and spray mists. To make a simple mist spray, Dilute 50 to 100 drops or so
of essential oils in 4 fluid ounces (120ml) of pure water. Spray to refresh
and cleanse the air.
There is an almost infinite possible number of combinations of oils to use to
freshen the air in your home. You are limited only be your imagination and
the oils you have on hand. Essential oils are classified as top, middle or
base notes, and a basic understanding of this will help you make longer lasting
and more effective blends.
