As you all know, I have a very rambunctious, active toddler. I always say he is ALL boy – which could not be more true. He has two modes: being dead asleep or running around 100 miles per hour and goes from 0 to 100 from the minute he wakes up. He is sweet as can be but loves to get dirty, run around, and make messes – but that’s what toddlers do! I embrace almost everything about his toddler ways, but one thing I cannot get past are the smells that come from his messes with food, the dirt he drags in, and his bodily functions (eek!). Lighting candles to cover up these smells isn’t a safe solution because he might knock them over and I also don’t want him breathing in those fumes. So, Andrew and I have opted for products that have simpler ingredients and are low-risk because they don’t have a flame.
Simple Ingredients For Toddler Smells
We love the new brand PURE Fragrance Co. because it aligns with our feelings about simple ingredients and a lot of the philosophies we try to implement in our home, which you’ve seen on my blog (especially since I had Liam).
We use PURE Fragrance Co. sticks in a vase because they’re a very safe home fragrance product to have with our baby running around. These sticks are something we put on our mantle or on a high shelf, which ensures he can’t get to them. PURE Fragrance Co. products use simple ingredients and are mainly made of fragrance and paper. Since, they’re made of simple ingredients, they last so long! I love this aspect.
There is a long list of ingredients that PURE Fragrance Co. never uses (which can be found in other home fragrance products): parabens, PBTs, phthalates, carcinogens, respiratory sensitizers and reproductive mutagens – just to name a couple. Isn’t it scary to think that our kiddos could be breathing these things in? We’re so thankful to have found a product without harmful ingredients – perfect for households with kids. Plus, Liam has really bad allergies, so we’re all the more excited to have found an alternative to other home fragrance products – like wax melts, candles, reed diffusers, plug-ins, and aerosol room sprays – that are safe, healthy and don’t bother his allergies.
We have always been fans of fragrance sticks and these are PERFECT! The scents smell so good! Andrew’s favorite is Sea Salt + Driftwood because it reminds him of the ocean. I personally love the Cotton scent because it reminds me of fresh laundry. For our car, we use the Sea Salt + Driftwood vent clips as well as Charcoal + Musk car sticks, which are great to have, especially after picking my stinky kid up after he’s been running around all day. Even if this wasn’t the case, I’d still use sticks and vent clips because who doesn’t like their car to smell great? Think about when you have leftovers or take-out food. As much as you may love those tacos, it isn’t great when the smell is still sitting in your car hours later. To use the car sticks you simply hang them from your rear-view mirror, and you clip the vent clips onto your car vents (surprising, right?). It’s super easy!
We also love using the spheres, which can simply be placed in a glass, ceramic or metal bowl. We like keeping these in our guest room and living area, so that whenever friends and family stay over, they can enjoy these wonderful scents with us.
PURE Fragrance Co. is such a great solution for us, and I think it will be for you too! We really strive to support brands that work hard to keep our family safe and happy.
