Who doesn’t love a soaking in a warm bath with a good book and a glass of something delicious? Added bonus if you add a fragrant, fizzy bath bomb to your bath water.
Unfortunately, far too often store-bought bath bombs smell like you overdid it in the perfume aisle. Not ideal for the scent sensitive folks, or for those who want to avoid synthetic fragrances. Store-bought bath bombs can also contain toxic dyes which have been linked to UTI’s and yeast infections. And at $8 or more a pop, they’re far from economical.
Store bought room sprays and deodorizers may smell good, but they can be very bad for your upper respiratory system as well as your overall health. Common ingredients in these products include formaldehyde, phthalates, and dangerous aerosol propellants such as butane and propane — not to mention the thousands of other endocrine-disprupting chemicals that are not required to be disclosed on the product’s label. Exposure to these ingredients has been linked to cancer, pulmonary damage, asthma, and skin issues, among other concerns.
