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.
