Have you ever taken a long look down a supermarket aisle, with its overwhelming display of household products? Each day, it seems that one more bathroom cleaner, detergent, or air freshener has been added to the already burgeoning store shelves. Sooner or later, the chemicals and toxins in these products end up in the environment - in our water, in the air that we breathe, and the food that we eat.
Thankfully, there are many natural alternatives that can be used. One of my favorite air fresheners is dried lavender flowers. Freshly-cut lavender can be hung upside down until dry; this will allow the flowers to keep their wonderful scent. They can then be used as potpourri, in a room, a drawer, or underneath a pillow for a relaxing night's sleep!
