How can aromatherapy diffusers compare with synthetic air fresheners?
When choosing between the two, you would see that aromatherapy diffusers, which are considered to be novelty, hasn't been a popular choice when it comes to household fragrance diffusers as compared to air fresheners. That being said, the range of air fresheners are far and plenty. You can easily find one at your local convenience store with interesting scents which you probably won't find in aromatherapy stores.
Despite all these, people fail to see the real reason why they should ditch their air fresheners.
Air fresheners contain formaldehyde. This is a human carcinogen which is extremely hazardous to health and can cause cancer, hormonal abnormalities, birth defects and reproductive problems. Formaldehyde also causes short term problems such as eyes, nose and throat irritation. Inhalation of formaldehyde may also result in the damage to the lining of the nose and throat.

Not to worry, these are not deadly enough to kill you, but we all have to agree that there is a certain level of toxicity in these seemingly harmless everyday products.
