You finally cleaned all your apartment, but still you have the feeling that something is missing... It is always nice when you enter your house and a sweet fragrance touches your senses. It makes you feel the cosiness and cleanness of your home. Most of the air fresheners on the market are completely based on chemical products. But does it mean that if you have a keen smell of sense or you do not like the fragrances which are offered, you cannot use air freshener? In this article I would like to provide different reasons and ways of how to avoid the “chemical bombs” called air fresheners on the market.
If you want to fill your home with the sweet perfume of some flower or fruit, you do not need to go to the store and spend your money for expensive air fresheners. I will give you a couple of reasons why it is even better to do your air freshener at home by yourself.
First of all, nowadays there are so many people who suffer asthma or respiratory diseases. In such case you need to avoid these chemicals. Secondly, even if you are in a good health condition, it is not necessary to fill your lungs with this. Another reason to prepare the air freshener by yourself is that you can find your own fragrance, which matches you the best and you can enjoy the smells with which the nature endows us. Not to mention that you can save a lot of money by this and it is not that hard to do it. Moreover, sometimes the liquid air fresheners can make stains, which you can hardly remove from your expensive carpet, if they spill.
So, how to prepare an air freshener by yourself? Basically, the first thing you need is to decide what kind of scent do you prefer. The whole thing is to pick up products which best matches your taste. After that put the products in a dish and cover them with a bit of water. There are special kind of candles which you need to use. Put the dish over the candle. The fragrance depends on the heat and how fast the water evaporates. This method will not only helps you to freshen the air at your home, but also it will moisten the air.
Another way to prepare air freshener, provided by Extensive Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, is in the form of liquid. Then you can use spray bottle. You need just to mix drops of water, with a bit of alcohol and essential oils. For instance, you can mix two or three essential oils, add a bit of water and some alcohol (vodka, cognac etc.), mix it in a dish and pour it in a bottle.
Usually, when you start cleaning your home with different detergents and the smells mix up, it starts to titillate the senses. In such cases the air fresheners can help you. But it is preferable to be organic, since you had enough chemicals in your lungs from the strong detergents and moreover your home stops smell of bleach.
It is not surprisingly that there is so much fuzz around the so called aromatherapy. The natural scents not only freshens the air, but also improves your health. The different essential oils may have different influence on the body- some of them makes you feel more relaxed, others fill up the body with energy. These oils are used from times immemorial, even from the ancient Egyptians. So, do not go for the easiest way- just to buy it from the shop, but try to Do It Yourself.
