Healthy way to infuse holiday aroma in your home instead of toxic air fresheners
Do we ever get blinded by media, advertisements and what appears good since everyone is doing it… And I am talking about the typical plug ins and fragrant air freshener candles and sprays you see plentiful in grocery stores and the like! I was a sucker for all of this myself..

What simple solutions with Air Fresheners to use that are healthy and gives a Holiday Fragrant
- My favorite air diffuser, just add essential oil drops to this for an amazing air freshener! I found this excellent diffuser at the 5 star hotel Surf & Sand in Laguna Beach, Ca’s spa.. they were selling it for $99… and I found it on Amazon for 1/2 that price at $49!!!! I love Amazon.. Here is link to this Spa Ceramic Diffuser Make sure you use filtered water.
- Quality Essential Oils to use with your air diffuser for a Holiday Fragrant, Cinnamon, Pine or a Holiday Blend to name a few… A reputable brand on Amazon that I like is Plant Therapy, they give fair prices for high quality essential oils. Each one of these essential oils are loaded with health benefits from healthy brain function, relieving depression, stimulating libido, decreasing inflammation and so much more…
