Scott: Can you talk about things like candles, air fresheners, the plug-in ones, the spray bottles? There's plenty of things to make rooms and things smell better. They're very popular. Can they actually have a benefit, or is there some downside to some of those products?

Mindy Green: You can fragrance a room with natural, essential oils, either through a mist, there are some plug-ins, but I think you are referring to the more synthetic plug-ins and the stick aroma reed diffusers. 

Scott: Mm-hmm.

Mindy Green: I personally consider those to be air pollutants.

Scott: Sure.

Mindy Green: They have a lot of propylene glycol, and many of them don't comply with standards for VOCs. So I prefer to use essential oils, either in an aromatic diffuser, in a candle, or in a simple spray mist where you can put a few drops of essential oil in some water and spray the air.
Aromatherapist Mindy Green explains why most of the commercial air fresheners are not healthy and could be dangerous. She also mentions some more healthy alternatives.
