DIY NATURAL AIR FRESHENER – SIMMER RECIPES

sunnysleevez.com
I love smells-nice ones. However I live with the funky-foot fragrance of a tween boy, a 7 year old princess with the backside of a trucker and a couple of champion mousers who are guilty of some pretty awful aromas!
Commercial air fresheners are loaded with carcinogens which contribute greatly to indoor air pollution
The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) study showed that 12 of 14 common household air fresheners contained phthalates – known toxins linked to asthma, cancer, birth defects as well as formaldehyde, a known carcinogen,.
None of these products have these disclosed on their labeling. At the moment there is no federal regulation of chemicals in cleaning products.
In fact not only are Companies not required to list their ingredients they are not even required to perform health and safety testing and are able to hide all sorts of toxins behind the generic term fragrance due to “trade secret” laws that protect the industry.
So next time your home gets a bit whiffy rather than breathing in great big lungfuls of  neurotoxins try some of these very safe, very effective almost FREE simmer recipes that not only will your home with wonderful fragrance but also humidify the air which can help to prevent the spread of cold and flu germs in the air.
These can also be made in a crock pot making your fragrance more portable for a school or office party
The longer you simmer the better and more fragrant it becomes.  It’s even reusable for 3-4 times if you refrigerate.  There are so many variations your imagination run wild!
WARNING – delicious smells can lead to an outbreak of baking or the appearance of hungry family members wanting to know what you’re cooking for them!
  • Caution: Set your timer for 30 minutes so you remember to top up with water. You don’t want the pot burning dry. Do not leave the house with this left heating on the stove.
  • Storage: You can refrigerate your simmering recipe and reuse daily for up to one week. Just keep adding water as needed.
  • Savings: For apple juice, cranberry juice, herbs and spices that are outdated, don’t throw out–just add to your simmering pot.
  • Recycle – just add to the compost
