Breathe Easy

I am a very positive person but I have a confession to make. I hate winter!

Yes, that is very un-Canadian of me, but I do NOT like cold and ice.

I stay active and skate, do outdoor activities with my family, but I don’t love the cold.

I like our warm summer months and being outside all the time. I love the beach!

Indoor air can feel not only claustrophobic but polluted and unhealthy, so I try to make our home environment as healthy as possible.

First of all, I do not use artificial air fresheners. The studies that have found the chemicals air fresheners contain can cause serious health problems are too numerous to mention. So I stay away.

I have air purifying house plants which can filter out many pollutants. One of my favourites is the Peace lily (Spathiphyllum) It can survive in shady areas and a NASA study found that it removed VOCs such as formaldehyde, benzene and trichloreothylene.

However, as much as I love their benefits, I don’t really want a plant in every single corner.


In the Fall, I bought myself an early Christmas gift, an indoor Nebulizer by Saje.

As I have said before, when I find something I love, I share it! You’re welcome!

The Saje Nebulizer is an essential oil diffuser, air purifier and humidifier. It reduces dust and other common allergens. It is also a wonderful deodorizer.

I have the aromaOm and the aromaBreeze models. There are models to fit in any décor. The nebulizer works with water and some drops of their essential oils.

Saje offers many beautiful oil blends. I love that it makes my home smell like a spa. I mean really, who doesn’t love the spa??


A few of my personal favourites are:

Goddess - essential oils of orange, palmarosa, rose, indian neroli, jamine & champa.

Celebrate – essential oils of lemon, orange, grapefruit, bergamot, tangerine, frankincense, mandarin, myrrh, clove bud, cinnamon

Liquid Sunshine – essential oils of grapefruit, bergamot, orange, lime & mandarin

Refresh – essential oils of spearmint, lavender, lemon, eucalyptus, rosewood & cedarwood.

Gratitude – essential oils of orange, vanilla, coffee, spearmint, rosewood, sage, benzoin & black pepper.

I am a big fan of essential oils and plant based ingredients and their benefits. I use them for cosmetic and health puposes and their natural healing abilities. I’ll share more on this in later posts.
