For years, I think proud of myself that I take a very natural approach to the wellness of me and my family. However, I have recently ventured into the aromatherapy market and found out, much to my horror that I was wrong. One of the main reasons for "no nos" was air freshener. Let us not even with all the petrochemicals and other chemicals that are in other products such as lotion, shampoo, conditioners, household cleaners, detergents, and start well you get thePicture.
However, I thought that air fresheners were not too bad, were they? Oh, I was so wrong! I read an article that recently reached by Lesley Grimwood, a registered aromatherapist and member of the Aromatherapy and Allied Practitioners Association. As I read further believe that aromatherapy is not just something taken lightly and sniffed at! I recommend that you find her article and read it thoroughly. (Air fresheners - not to be sniffed).
Unfortunately, now is the word "aromatherapy"is so loosely in our sales and marketing, that "real" Aromatherapy can be applied have emerged over her nose, because the use of quality essential oils cost more. In fact, if you notice the word aromatherapy is that so many things, including, yes, used air fresheners.
What I found was from Article Lesley Grimwood, that these so-called air fresheners smell really just "disguise" of chemicals that cause some diseases in us. Since their readingArticle I really went to work proactively and decided that we would rid our home of all those chemical laden products. We did this in our gardens, laundry products, cleaning, and now care. Each of chemicals that penetrate into these products, especially all the petrochemicals industry, in our bodies and not leave them, if we manage to do a thorough detoxification! Our poor animals suffer even more because the chemicals we use on our soil in their bodies through theirFeet!
Here is what mentioned in the Bristol University study, more than 14,000 pregnant women in Leslie Grimwood Article: Those who used air fresheners daily 25 percent more headaches than those who used it suffered only found once a week. In addition, reported an increase of 19% in post-natal depression, and the baby also suffered. Those under 6 months, which day by day with the air fresheners suffered 30% more ear infections and 20 percent were more likely to sufferDiarrhea.
Other results, such as found how to make this air freshener that our homes smell better, and in the advertising gives us the impression that we will feel better, you can actually almost the opposite. The results showed that there was increased anxiety, tension, headaches, depression, insomnia, diarrhea, etc. This is to make us feel better?
Well, I have a better alternative to this horrible air fresheners found - essential oils with a cold air spreadsDiffuser or mixed with spring water in an amber glass spray bottle. The incredible thing is that when essential oils into the air, they make not only the popular ones appear fresher air is the air fresher. Different, different things to do, but they affect all facets of your body in a positive, healing way. The oils can, if distributed in every cell of your body within seconds.
The essential oils have adaptagenic qualities, so they go to where they are needed in thoseBody. An essential oil is the life force of the plant similar to our blood and immune system so that they adapt very well in our body. They hurt our bodies like the chemicals do in these air fresheners. Rather, they are helping our body while cleaning the air. Yes, I say CLEANING. The air is really fresh after a distribution of your favorite essential oils into the air.
Essential oils with oxygen and detoxifies the blood in our body simultaneously. They create an environment in which pathogenic organisms can not live! By getting all the chemicals that we are in our body through all the products we have in our homes, our gardens, in the air, in our food, our bodies are degenerating because they can not get rid of these toxins without help. This can lead to disease.
However, when we inhale the essential oils, either through a diffuser or directly or through their application to our bodies (I even have some oral play, I like my husband and our> Dog) the oils, the blood-brain barrier and clean out the petrochemicals! They are the only known substances which are able to do so! And you thought they smelled good!
So the next time you want to brush up things in your home, try an essential oil, and that instead of clean air!
