Why you should toss your candles and what to use in their stead

You may not think that you need an alternative to candles and air fresheners but that is not the case.  The truth is that candles and air fresheners are creating an unbelievable amount of indoor air pollution and most people don’t even realize it!! I am not going to get too deep into this but a quick google search will have you throwing all of your scented candles and air wicks directly in the garbage.  One study I read showed that being in the same room as a burning candle for one hour was the equivalent to smoking a cigarette!!  That is just the tip of the iceberg and I for one am not interested in being in that kind of environment and I certainly won’t have my children exposed to it.

There are of course some amazing alternatives, my favorite being a diffuser.  We now have in our home probably six diffusers of various styles all of which are used frequently.  We love to have a nice smelling environment so why not!  Not only do diffused oils smell amazing they also lift your mood and increase the amount of oxygen your body is able to absorb.  Today I have some of our favorite blends that we use, some of them for a specific purpose and some just because they smell amazing!! Enjoy!
