One of my favorite things about the holidays is the scents - fir, spruce, cinnamon. Unfortunately, many of the products we use in our homes to create these scents contain questionable ingredients.
Not only do we love our safer scents in our home, but we also have super sensitive senses of smell so our choices are limited.
This year, we are loving the Spruce scent from P. F. Candle Co. out of Los Angeles. The description from the website did not disappoint: Dense forest floor, sunshine and snow, corner tree lots. Snow powder, blue spruce, cedarwood, and citrus.
And the ingredients are perfect for a safer, clean and bright home: Our candles are simple: they're all made with 100% domestically-grown soy wax, fine fragrance oils, and cotton-core wicks. The fragrances we use are paraben-free, phthalate-free, and are never (ever) tested on animals. $20/each and free shipping on orders $50+.
And for the season, I am cleaning with holiday-scented products from Squeak. Daily, I use the ALL PERP Holiday scent of cinnamon, rosemary and orange in my kitchen as well as the FLOOR ME floor cleaner in pine, cedar wood and juniper berry. (Picked by Parents magazine for Best Green Cleaning Products of 2020!)
And when you need just a little pick me up in ANY room of your house choose Squeak's Everywhere Mist in the 'Tis the Season scent. Here's Squeak's reasoning and description: This holiday Everywhere Mist will only be available from October 1st - February 28th!
Your space (home, car, office) SHOULD smell good, right? Between the dogs, the smelly kids, the bathroom situations and the fish for dinner, our spaces can get pretty funky. But why choose fake-fragrant-chemical concoctions in candles, plug-ins and other deodorizers filled with ingredients linked to health issues like asthma, lung issues, allergic reactions, hormone disruption, air contamination and more? This makes no sense. YOU deserve to breathe safe, clean air. Our Everywhere Mists are made with natural and organic ingredients so you don't have to worry. Spray away. Poisons are not welcome here. Kick them out of your space too.

And lastly, my pick for combatting smells are charcoal bags. Great for your laundry room, car or smelly sneakers. I picked these because of the sustainability factor: These air freshener bags (paid link) can be reused and recyclable. To rejuvenate just place the bags outside in the sun once a month for about 2 hours. After 2 years you can recycle them in your garden soil and help your plants to absorb better.
GREAT GIFT IDEA! Grab these charcoal bags and put the shoe size ones in stockings at the holidays! The soon forthcoming clean and bright holiday gift guide has more charcoal stocking stuffer ideas.
