The winter months are generally associated with increased risks of developing colds or the flu. Any illness is unpleasant, and many people look to boost their immunity through food or supplements. However, the air quality in your home can also have a lot to do with your health. Contaminated, toxic, and poor quality air can create respiratory concerns with allergy and flu-like symptoms. An air scent diffuser can help you combat these issues and provide clean indoor air this winter.
The Dangers of Poor Air Quality
You don’t see the air particles you constantly breathe in, but over time, your body can start to feel these particles’ effects. Air laden with mold spores, chemicals, dust, pollens, or other irritations may cause problems with asthma, create cardiovascular concerns, and even impact cognitive health. Breathing in polluted air over a long period of time can do serious damage to your health.
You may not even realize you are suffering from these conditions, but your symptoms may start to worsen when you spend more time indoors during the winter months. If you have wheezing, coughing, difficulty breathing, chronic headaches, or persistent fatigue, you may be experiencing illness or discomfort stemming from indoor air pollution.
The Benefits of an Air Scent Diffuser
When you are trying to improve the air quality in your home, there are many options. However, not all of these actually improve air quality. Many people rely on the following items to improve the smell of the home, but this doesn’t mean the air quality has improved:
- Chemicals can emit more toxins into the air, so cleaning your furniture, carpet, or other household areas or items with strong cleaners isn’t always going to give you air that is safe enough to breathe.
- Candles and aerosols also have fragrances and components that can be made from toxic products, and continually spraying or burning these scents can contribute to indoor air pollution.
Rather than deal with the cumbersome and potentially chemical nature of these products, consider the benefit of using a whole-home air diffuser to promote cleaner indoor air. Not only do you reach an entire home with a delicious fragrance, but you can also rest assured in the safety of the fragrances released by Whole Home Scenting for their diffusers. They are paraben and phthalate-free, making them safe for everyone in the house to breathe in.
Certain fragrances can actually contribute to cleaner air quality as well, improving your overall health and wellness. Taking out toxins and providing clean air can improve your respiratory health. Clean air in your lungs gives your body more oxygen to be pushed into the blood, up to the brain, and throughout the body. When your body is getting what it needs, you can notice a difference in your health.
The winter months have people spending a lot of time inside, and air quality becomes an important consideration. Whole Home Scenting offers air scent diffusers and a range of scents to improve the smell of your home without adding additional toxins to the air.
