Aromatherapy Air Fresheners
Some scents are welcome around our house and thanks to Charlotte we've discovered a new line from our friends at Vermont Soaps that really works great.
Scented with natural essential oils instead of chemical fragrances and propellants like most products on the market, their new Aromatherapy Air Fresheners are safe and nontoxic. They can be sprayed directly into the air, on skin, fine linens and other fabrics and all water safe surfaces to freshen and revitalize personal space at home, school, work, in cars and any other environment that could use a pleasant and uplifting scent.
We tried three aromatherapy air fresheners in our unofficial "smell" test - Country Lavender, Peppermint Magic and Lemongrass Zen. The fragrances are light and pleasing and since they use a pump spray bottle, you won't notice any aerosol smell. They all worked great in the bedroom, bathroom and office (I keep the Peppermint beside my desk) and we use them regularly.
The new natural air fresheners from Vermont Soap contain only pure essential oil aromas that provide aromatherapy benefits for the mind, but don't irritate the skin or nose. We give Vermont Soaps Aromatherapy Air Fresheners the Boomer Seal of Super-Sniffer Approval.
De Odor Works
I'm always looking for something - anything - that'll make traveling easier. I recently discovered a deodorant that you can pack in a carry-on bag that actually works. It's called De Odor Works and it provides a convenient and innovative solution to feeling fresh and clean after a long day of travel.
De Odor Works is an innovative odor eliminating product made entirely of medical grade, lightweight (approximately 2 ounces) stainless steel. Its secret is the unique reaction that occurs when ordinary running tap water and stainless steel combine to neutralize odor.
Using stainless steel with running water is a recognized method of eliminating the volatile sulfur compounds (VSC) that cause odor. Stainless steel is biocompatible to human tissue, so you can use De Odor Works anywhere on your body without any adverse effects.
Before you think this is a "New Agey" product that's all hat and no cattle - relax.
This is the same deodorizing product professional chefs have been using for years to clean their hands of strong odors - fish, onions, garlic and other kitchen smells. De Odor Works is safe, effective, comfortable, fast and easy to use. Its odor eliminating action is activated under running water in your shower. Simply shower as usual with soap and water. Rinse well. Then rub De Odor Works across your armpits, hands, feet or other areas of concern, for 30 seconds under running water. It'll keep you feeling fresh and odor free.
If you're looking for an easy alternative to "traditional" deodorant - something that you can toss in your travel bag or gym bag and just go - De Odor works is the perfect alternative.
