Easy And Economical:The 100% Natural Homemade Febreze Recipe.

When I see the commercials on TV where brands try to make us pass for "natural" their chemicals, it pisses me off!

As these terms are not regulated by law, any manufacturer can stick these words on their packaging...

...and thus mislead the consumer.

And that's the case with the Febreze air freshener that we all know. It is sold in all forms:spray, candles, car deodorant...

Hold on tight, here is a small list of the toxic products it contains:


And that's not the exhaustive list... It's chilling, isn't it?

Breathing in these chemicals is obviously hazardous to health.

Since I know this, none of these products are coming home!

Especially since it is very easy and economical to make your own 100% natural Febreze . Watch:

Why aren't all the ingredients of commercial products listed?

For the one and only reason that they don't need to be!

Yes, the manufacturers are not obliged to list all the ingredients because it allows them to protect their recipe!

Unfortunately, these hidden ingredients are very harmful to our health. Indeed, they contain phthalates in particular.

These molecules that make perfume last longer cause birth defects and serious hormonal disruptions in the male reproductive system.

As for the synthetic musk used by Febreze, it causes allergies and other hormonal disturbances that are very detrimental to our health.

You will understand, it is better to use this 100% natural recipe instead of spending your money on Febreze products!
