I love when I walk into my home and the rooms smell so fresh and clean. It really is a nice feeling. I used to fill my rooms with air fresheners and vacuum at least once a week with a carpet deodorizer. That was the best way to fill the room with a nice refreshing sent. The problem with those store bought carpet deodorizers is that the manufactures add “fragrance” which is a way of adding undisclosed chemical scents and ingredients (learn more here).
In the last year or so, I’ve been slowly trying to become aware of the products I’m using on my body as well as what I’m using in my home. I like to make sure I know exactly what ingredients are in the products I’m using and that nothing is hidden under the label “fragrance.” I don’t always make homemade, but when something only uses two ingredients and is actually cheaper to make it definitely makes me want to stick to making it at home.
I use therapeutic grade essential oils because of Seed to Seal quality guarantee (learn more here) and knowing that the oils haven’t been mixed with other ingredients or “fragrances.” I started with the Premium Starter Kit which allowed me to try out 11 of the different essential oils.
