Choose air fresheners wisely.
Air fresheners can contain far more than natural essential oils for fragrance.
Nearly every household in the United States uses an air freshener in some form.
But most of the ingredients in air fresheners are poisonous chemicals known to cause infertility, brain damage, respiratory illnesses, and cancer.
Most also contain phthalates, which are known to affect hormone production in men.
And these chemicals are emitted into the air of your home while they work.
The best thing to do is use gel versions that are scented only with essential oils.
