The air quality in your car is worse than the air outside. That "new car" smell that we all like, is in fact, a toxic mix of volatile organic compounds or VOCs. The dashboards, the seats, and the various plastic trims all emit toxins into the air of your vehicle. It is especially true during the hot months. The importance of airing your vehicle out before getting in and driving away could not be more important. Chloride, phthalates, heavy metals, lead, and bromine are all part of this toxic mix. These VOCs are all known carcinogens that can lead to respiratory issues, cancer, birth defects, and other health issues.
Unfortunately, many of us over the years have unknowingly increased the toxicity in our vehicles by adding another toxin via the use of car air fresheners. Car air fresheners are 100% artificial and more and more studies have concluded that they are responsible for many health issues. We found this excellent article by Toxin Detective that will give you information on this threat. Please click here to view.
In an effort to provide alternatives, we would like to introduce you to a product that we now carry- essential oil diffusers for your car. These diffusers are very convenient and have no power cords. Made from stainless steel, they are excellent quality and very effective. Simply place one of the provided pads into the diffuser, add your favourite oils to the pad, and clip it on to your vent. You are now diffusing 100% pure essential oils that you know will not be toxic to you or your loved ones. We have three to choose from!
We would recommend our House Cleaning Collection to go with this car diffuser. The same oils in this set can be used to clean your house, diffuse in your home, clean your car, and then used in your car diffuser. It is a perfect combination with multiple uses and NO toxins!
