1000 Flowers for the Planet - #642 Avoid Fake Fragrances
Synthetic fragrances are a significant source of VOC exposure, so next time you consider purchasing room deodorisers, perfumes, deodorants, candles, or any other product containing a synthetic fragrance, stop and think whether you actually need it. Do you really need to add to all the other sources of VOC in your home? Are these things affecting the health of you and your family? Are there natural products you could purchase instead?
Often we purchase these things because the marketing companies have developed excellent skills at selling things to us when we don’t need them at all. Our ancestors survived without many products we now use. Why do we need them? Why are we using them? Just take a little time to rethink your purchases. You might find avoiding fake fragrances is a good choice.
