DIY Wallflowers Scented Plugin
i’m about to get hippie on you all. plugin air fresheners (and tons of other stuff) have something called VOC in them. VOC stands for “volatile organic compounds” and they are highly toxic. they are chemicals with a low boiling point.
VOC cause all sorts of problems in your body: infertility (some of you may like that!), headaches, nervous system disorders, memory loss and cancer for both your pet and you…. lots of things.
i was bummed when i learned about this and unplugged mine. being a packrat i couldn’t bring myself to toss it out and thought, maybe i’ll just plug it in for the holidays and poison my loved ones only a few times a year.
then i had a bright idea:
replace the bad stuff with good stuff: essential oils, which are awesome for you and, sometimes a lot cheaper than the liquid cancer bath and body works sells.
here’s how you do it.
remove the wick part (which ironically looks like a cigarette) empty and rinse out the bulb
find an oil you like. i chose peppermint because its pretty cheap and it makes my house smell cool and clean. i highly recommend orange, lavender, cinnamon, roman chamomile, clary sage, lemon, rose, grapefruit, jasmine or ylang ylang oil.
pour the oil into the bulb
i fill it up about 1/3 of the way but it will last lay longer if you do the whole thing.
fill the rest of the bulb with water, but not to the top or else inserting the wick with make it spill. put the wick back in the bulb.
screw it back into the plug in part and enjoy refreshing, healing air that won’t make your hair fall out.
