Febreeze: a spritz of 87 toxic Chemicals

I know its no longer a NEWSFLASH that there are dangerous and toxic cancer causing chemicals (human carcinogens) found in products we consume in many ways including benzene, beryllium, asbestos, vinyl chloride, arsenic and many more. Folks are mostly aware that a person's risk of developing Cancer is in part determined by how much, how long, how often, and when they are exposed to dangerous toxins and chemicals. But many people simply don't have the time to research what products are safe to use and consume and which are not. Also people want to trust that giant companies like Proctor and Gamble and others would not put harmful chemicals in their products.

However quickly jump over to GOOGLE and you will see that Febreeze for example, contains at least 87 chemicals (including toxic ones).

However, there's many alternatives for this toxic chemical spray. And isn't it incredibly empowering when we take the time, vote with our dollars (by not buying dangerous products) and take your health into your own hands? A quick and simple replacement for Febreeze, is to simply take a glass spray bottle and put a few drops of your favorite smelling and health promoting all natural Essential Oil in, mixed with water and a dab of salt and viola! You have a lovely smelling house and are not breathing 87 harmful chemicals!

Amazing.... and again, really empowering. Its important to actively take steps to reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals that are known to lead to disease. So throw out the Febreeze! Make your own Faux-Breeze! Specifically in Febreeze as you will see in the link below: The chemical 1,3-Dichloro-2-propanol has been linked to cancer. Methyl pyrrolidone is toxic to reproduction and development. Propylene glycol also causes cancer, causes allergies, and is toxic to the immune system. Alcohol denatured has been known to cause organ system toxicity. Thanks for that, Proctor and Gamble! https://www.thealternativedaily.com/10-ways-febreze-threatens-your-health-and-how-to-freshen-your-home-naturally/
