We have a fragrance obsession, am I right? We hit Bath & Body Works for the latest sales on Pumpkin Spice Drizzled Unicorn Horn Infused scented candles. Because our house has to smell like something at all times. We’ve arrived at a place in our cultural timeline where the house just not smelling bad is not enough for us. We need SCENT. If your house doesn’t smell like a damn muffin, you are doing something wrong.
A little about me
I used to be right there with you. Fragrance all the live long day. If Target had Glade candles on sale for buy 4 get 1 free, I bought 10. (Hey, 2 were free, right?) One was lit at all times. It wasn’t enough that I cleaned my house and it didn’t smell of anything in particular. It had to smell like something. I’m not sure why this is a thing honestly. But here we are.
I started to do research (at the request of a crunchy friend) about these candles and sprays I was using and…
Basically, I found out that that shit is horrible for you. That’s a whole other blog post, so just use your Google fingers for now. But between fragrance and formaldehyde and all their friends, I was slowly poisoning myself. So, that’s neat.
So how do you remove fragrance from your home?
I found a little booboo that really help when I want my house to not only not smell bad, but smell like something. Enter my girl Citrus Fresh.
She’s non-toxic and smells like a lovely orange grove. Bonus: No “fragrance.” She cleans the air without causing damage to my hormones or respiratory system (because that’s a thing, guys). She is great for putting in drains or toilets for cleaning too. Even better, she has given me a better tool for submitting to an obsession. She makes me empowered in my choices. She is a gem, and every home needs her.
