Potpourri, the safe way to scent your home

An assortment of dried out flower petals, herbs, leaves and shells along with essential oils is called potpourri. These things are all mixed together in proportion to bring together a beautiful combination of smell along with sight. Potpourri is easily available in the market but people also like to make it on their own. Reason being you can find the ingredients very easily and can experiment around with different mixtures. Potpourri is most organic air freshener which can be used in any part of your house, office or shop.

Chemical filled lifestyle has taken over the human being in this era. Inorganic materials are used more than the organic material and this has accentuated the demand and importance of organic materials.
Scientists state that the atmosphere inside the house and personal spaces is 5 times more contagious than the environment outside the house. The agents that have brought this liability to the inside environment are ironically the over the counter cleaning products that are used to save and protect from germs. But they actually consist of such a chemical combination that is toxic and hazardous to human health. Not only is this but the residue of these products are equally responsible for contamination as well.

The benefits of Potpourri compared with other air fresheners

Other studies done in the USA stated that only 3 out of 10 products are tested out of about 15000 of the commonly found cleaning agents in a house. It is also found that the air fresheners sprayed to freshen the environment are the most common reason behind headaches in women. These products also lead to ear infections and diarrhoea in infants younger than 6 months.

But worse of all is the synthetic phthalates that these products contain which are known to lead to diseases like cancer in lab rats.
So now that you know how many great harms these products may cause, you should take a roll to help make the earth a better place. Every individual needs to play a role to make the environment safe and healthy and this is where you can use potpourri to lessen down the usage of air fresheners. Potpourri is not only a purely organic product, it contains no harmful chemicals.

Potpourri is green friendly, all round safe fragrance

This is just one advantage of potpourri, other advantages include the relaxing and calming feelings potpourri create in your mind. The aroma will help you unwind and relax. Potpourri is also known to evoke feelings and memories through the sense of smell. You can take a cup of potpourri and put it in a pot of boiling water and let it simmer. The aroma created this way will have an immediate release of aroma bringing the liveliness back in your room. You can use rosemary and lavender flowers to have calming and soothing effects. On the other hand if you want to have a mind that is alert and strong, go with lemon, eucalyptus or citrus fruit based potpourri.
Potpourri has been used since very long to not only have a house that smells like fresh garden all the time but also an overall better wellbeing.
