No one likes a stinky house right? For us moms who have little ones in diapers, bad smells are simply inevitable. Even when there are no lingering smells, sometimes we just like to have a fragrant aroma to brighten our mood. So what do we do? We spray air fresheners or plug-in an oil one or burn fragrant candles. Mmmmmm, love that vanilla or refreshing citrus! Unfortunately, that lovely scent really isn’t so lovely. No, what you are really smelling and inhaling into your body are harmful chemicals.

Several phthalate compounds have caused reduced sperm counts, testicular atrophy and structural abnormalities in the reproductive systems of male test animals, and some studies also link phthalates to liver cancer.” (Environmental Working Group)
