Urbanites who drive, especially in Bangkok, spend probably over 50% of our week in the car. Many people use car freshener products to scent their cars. But do you know what goes to those air fresheners and are you aware of the synthetic chemicals you are breathing in and are accumulating in your body?
Fragrances are made of synthetic chemicals that can increase your risk of headaches, earaches, depression, allergies, irregular heart beat, and even diarrhea. So, given the amount of time you are in your car, do you really want to be literally bathing your and your passengers’ bodies and lungs with chemicals that could harm you?
Fortunately, you don’t have to avoid car fresheners altogether, because there is a natural non-toxic alternative. We can switch to using pure natural 100% essential oils to refresh the scent of our car and not just the car, but the aroma refreshes you and your passengers too. And as a plus, just smelling these pure essential oils can lift your mood when a rude driver suddenly cuts you off or if you’re stuck in ridiculous inexplicable frustrating traffic.
So here’s a great refreshing recipe:
- Find wooden peg or clip.
- You an either drop the essential oils on the peg directly or place a piece of felt on it where you can drop the oils
- 3 drops of Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil
- 4 drops of Young Living Lemon Essential Oil
You can play with your own combinations of essential oils. Love it? Please share your favorite combinations!
