This is not your typical DIY setting spray recipe.
I’m not going to tell you to mix up some rosewater and glycerin and expect you to believe that it will set your makeup on a hot, humid summer day. It won’t!
Don’t get me wrong — a DIY setting spray made with glycerin has its place. (I wrote a post about one, after all.) I love glycerin for its hydrating, dewy finish, and it works well when the temperature is cold or mild.
The majority of store-bought cleaning sprays contain endocrine disrupting chemicals that can be harmful to your health. As well, the synthetic fragrances used in these products can irritate those who are sensitive to scents. As someone who suffers from chronic migraines, it’s extremely important to avoid these chemical fragrances as they can trigger a severe migraine headache.
Also, for those with little ones at home, avoiding harmful fragrances is equally as important. And while there are definitely a variety of fantastic green cleaning products on the market, we have yet to find a natural cleaning spray that not only works well, but is affordable.
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.
