How to make natural air freshener

How to make natural air freshener

I used to rely on store-bought air fresheners to bring a pleasant aroma into my home, but I found myself consistently disappointed by their artificial scents and lackluster performance. When I discovered that these products were loaded with harsh chemicals and might be the cause of my headaches, I knew I had to make a change. I turned to DIY solutions and never looked back. I'm thrilled I made the switch to a natural air freshener. No more headaches and my home has never smelled better!

Why is making your own natural air freshener better than store-bought?

Creating your own natural air freshener is an absolute game-changer! Not only does it bring a burst of feel-good aromatherapy into your space, but it also packs a powerful punch of freshness without any harsh chemicals. By crafting your own, you're in the driver's seat, customizing scents that reflect your personality and preferences. Plus, it's an eco-friendly choice that reduces wasteful packaging. Especially eco-friendly if you use organic essential oil promoting organic farming with 50% more wildlife. With simple ingredients like essential oils and water, making your own air freshener is a fun and rewarding project that leaves your home smelling naturally fresh in seconds. So why settle for store-bought when you can infuse your surroundings with your own signature scent, making every inhale a joyful experience?

What you will need to make your own natural air freshener

Organic Essential Oils

How to make a natural air freshener

  1. Pour the vodka into an 8 ounce spray bottle. Add 10-40 drops of your desired essential oil(s).
  2. Let the oils sit for 5 minutes, and then shake well. Next add the water.
  3. Shake again and spray!
  4. Before each use, it's essential to give the spray bottle a gentle shake to ensure the even distribution of essential oils within the liquid before spraying.

You can make the scent as strong as you want by altering the amount of essential oil.

Lavender, Peppermint, Lemongrass and Rose Geranium make great air fresheners, but you can use any essential oil combination (or just one) that smells good to you. I like to experiment with different blends according to my mood, the season, or time of day.

It's fun to come up with your own special blends. Here are a few of my favourites. As with any essential oil blend recipe, tweak the ratios to suit your own needs and preferences.

Natural air freshener FAQ

How long do natural air fresheners last?

A natural air freshener will last up to two weeks in the fridge. It's good practice to refresh or replenish the air freshener as needed to maintain a consistent level of fragrance in your space.

Do you have to use filtered water to make a natural air freshener?

No, but tap water contains chemicals and may affect the smell of your room spray.

Why does my natural air freshener look cloudy?

If your spray looks cloudy don't worry. It's just what happens sometimes when you combine particular ingredients. It will not affect the quality or aroma of the spray. 

Why doesn't my natural air freshener have a stronger smell?

Natural air fresheners are meant to be used as a quick air freshening boost. If you want a stronger smell, just add more organic essential oils.

Are skin and hair care products harming our oceans?

Are Skin & Hair Care Products Harming Our Oceans?

Unfortunately the answer is Yes. Awareness is growing regarding the influence of skin and hair care products on ocean ecosystems that provide us with over 70% of the oxygen that we breathe.  No wonder stories of coral reef damage, hormone disruption in fish, and plastic causing harm to marine life are more prevalent than ever before.

Here at New Dawn on the beautiful coast of Pembrokeshire, we are dedicated to creating ocean-friendly products that not only rejuvenate your skin and hair but also keep the ecological balance of our planet's main life-support system...our precious oceans!

5 skin and hair care ingredients that are harmful to our oceans

1. Plastic Micro-beads

Micro-beads are tiny, non-biodegradable particles, often found in personal care products like exfoliating scrubs and toothpaste, they're too minuscule to be effectively filtered out by wastewater treatment plants. As a result, they enter waterways and oceans, accumulating in staggering quantities. Marine organisms mistakenly consume these microbeads, causing internal damage and potentially entering the food chain. Banning and avoiding products containing these harmful microbeads is a crucial step in preserving the delicate balance of our marine environments.

Alternative: Poppy seeds are environmentally friendly and biodegradable.

Tea Tree Soap with Poppy Seeds

2. Triclosan (TCS)

Triclosan, a common antimicrobial agent, is present in various everyday products, ranging from antibacterial soaps and acne treatments to shampoos. While intended to combat harmful bacteria, its consequences on aquatic ecosystems, particularly coral reefs, are deeply concerning. Studies reveal that triclosan hampers the growth and development of blue-green algae, essential for the overall health and resilience of coral communities. The intricate symbiotic relationship between coral and algae plays a pivotal role in sustaining the vibrant biodiversity of coral reefs. Moreover, triclosan has exhibited detrimental effects on fish populations, with documented instances of increased mortality. Sustainable choices in personal care products can help preserve marine ecosystems, ensuring a healthier future for our oceans and the myriad species they support... including us humans!

Alternative: Organic Essential Oils like Patchouli, Tea Tree, Lavender and Benchmark Thyme for their antibacterial properties.

3. Parabens

Parabens are synthetic preservatives commonly used in cosmetics, skincare, and personal care products to extend shelf life by inhibiting the growth of bacteria and molds. Parabens have been associated with coral reef degradation and have been detected in marine mammals like otters and dolphins, posing risks, particularly in relation to reproductive health.

Alternative: Choose natural organic skincare that is paraben-free.

4. Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)

Sulphate, added as a foaming agent in products such as shower gel and toothpaste, is non-essential and has the potential to induce toxicity in marine organisms, affecting their growth, reproduction, and overall health. Additionally, the foaming properties of sulphates may interfere with the natural surface tension of water, impeding oxygen exchange and further jeopardising the well-being of marine environments.

Alternative: Choose SLS free Toothpaste and Washes or Soaps that don't contain Sulfates/Sulphates.

5. Oxybenzone

A common ingredient in many sunscreens, Oxybenzone has been identified as a significant threat to coral reefs and other marine life. As sunscreen users enjoy the sun, it washes off into oceans, where it can accumulate and lead to coral bleaching, a phenomenon that weakens and ultimately endangers coral reefs. The adverse impact extends beyond corals, affecting various marine species, from fish to invertebrates.

Alternative: Shade - All Natural 72% Organic SPF25 Sunscreen. 100% natural marine-safe sun care for all the family!

Can you put Tea Tree Oil directly on the skin?

Yes, applying organic tea tree essential oil to the skin is safe, but it's important to perform a patch test before applying to ensure your unique skin is tolerant. It might cause irritation in people with allergies or very sensitive skin.

Research on tea tree oil has focused on its external application exclusively. Avoid swallowing it, as oral ingestion can lead to toxicity.

How to use Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil uses for skin

Using a Tea Tree oil cleanser on your skin can be beneficial due to its natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. Tea Tree oil helps cleanse the skin, unclog pores and reduce acne-causing bacteria. It may also assist in soothing inflammation and promoting a clearer complexion, making it a popular choice for individuals dealing with acne or oily skin.

Additionally, tea tree oil cleansers are often used for their refreshing and invigorating scent, providing a pleasant and therapeutic cleansing experience.

Tea Tree Soap Cleanser

Using Tea Tree Oil neat on the skin (undiluted) can offer several benefits due to its potent properties:

Simply add a drop to a cotton bud or clean finger and apply directly to the desired area.
  • Acne/Milia: A tiny amount of this oil applied individually to each acne spot, bump or milia after washing and moisturising, works the best. Apply with a clean finger or cotton bud sparingly and be especially careful when applying close to sensitive areas e.g. eyes. If concerned dilute Tea Tree oil with a little of the light cream before applying.
  • Cuts and sores: Apply a small amount of neat tea tree oil directly to the affected area using a cotton swab, ensuring the skin is clean and unbroken, but exercise caution to prevent irritation.

Treating your Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) naturally

Treating your Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) naturally

Managing Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) poses an array of challenges, but incorporating natural remedies and self-care practices into your strategy can aid in symptom relief and reduce the frequency of flare-ups.

What is Hidradenitis Suppurativa?

Hidradenitis Suppurativa, often called HS, is a skin condition that causes painful bumps and boils to develop under the skin. These bumps or abscesses can be found in areas where skin rubs together, like the armpits, groin and buttocks. They can rupture, leading to the development of tunnels beneath the skin, which can cause further inflammation and scarring. HS is not only physically uncomfortable but can also have a significant impact on a person's quality of life, often causing embarrassment and emotional distress. While the exact cause of HS is not fully understood, it is believed to involve inflammation of the hair follicles and is more common in individuals with a family history of the condition.

Can Hidradenitis Suppurativa be cured?

Hidradenitis suppurativa, or HS, currently has no known cure, however lifestyle changes and natural treatments can help manage the symptoms and reduce flare-ups. While HS may not go away completely, with proper care, many people can find relief and better control of their symptoms, greatly improving their quality of life.

Which Essential Oils are good for HS?

Tea Tree Essential Oil and Benchmark Thyme Essential Oils are among the recommended options for managing Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS). These essential oils possess natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can aid in soothing the skin, reducing discomfort, and preventing infection. When diluted properly, Tea Tree and Benchmark Thyme Essential Oils can be applied topically to affected areas to help alleviate the symptoms of HS.

What is Benchmark Thyme?

Benchmark Thyme Oil is the result of many years of research and analysis into finding the best combination of different Thyme plants for skin application. It is a uniquely formulated blend of Thyme oils derived from four thyme cultivars. While certain aroma-chemicals such as terpinen-4-ol are present in Tea Tree oil and others like linalool can be found in normal Thyme oil, it is only in Benchmark Thyme that these and numerous other aroma-chemicals synergistically converge, making it truly unparalleled. This unique blend is powerful against bacteria but still gentle on the skin.

While you might associate this fragrant herb with the kitchen, it provides more than just flavour for your roast potatoes - there are a huge range of benefits that Benchmark Thyme can have on your body and mind.

How do you treat HS without medication?

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) can be challenging to manage, but there are some self-care strategies that may help alleviate symptoms and improve your comfort:

    1. Keep the affected area clean: Cleanse your skin using an antimicrobial soap or wash, as it aids in diminishing the presence of bacteria on your skin. With reduced bacterial activity, you may experience a decrease in the frequency of flare-ups.

     

    Benchmark Thyme Soap


    2. Apply an antimicrobial cream with Aloe Vera: Antimicrobial cream can be an effective step in soothing the discomfort associated with Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS). These creams are formulated to combat harmful bacteria that can exacerbate HS symptoms, providing relief and promoting healing. You can add a few drops of antimicrobial Benchmark Thyme or Tea Tree Essential Oil to the matching Light Moisturiser to increase it's potency.

    3. Warm Compresses: Applying warm, moist compresses to HS-affected areas can help reduce pain and promote drainage of abscesses. Use a clean, warm, damp cloth for this purpose. Adding a few drops of Tea Tree or Benchmark Thyme Essential Oil to a bowl of warm water to dampen a cloth can help sooth and pacify inflammation.

    4. Avoid Irritants: Wear loose-fitting clothing made of natural fabrics and washed in non-bio detergent to reduce friction and irritation.

    5. Exercise caution when shaving or waxing:  Dermatologists typically advise HS patients to avoid waxing altogether, as it can lead to skin irritation and potentially exacerbate the condition. If shaving, try using Tea Tree or Benchmark Thyme Conditioner or Soap.

    6. Opt for a Natural Organic Deodorant: Certain products can be overly agressive on sensitive HS-prone skin. Seek out a deodorant that lacks alcohol, baking soda, parabens, dyes, or fragrances. These components may lead to skin irritation and trigger HS outbreaks. I love using this one for my sensitive skin:

    Natural deodorant

    7. Maintain a healthy weight: Excess body weight can worsen HS symptoms. Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise may help alleviate some of the discomfort.

    8. Dietary Considerations: Some individuals find that certain foods, like dairy or processed sugars, can trigger HS flares. Keeping a food diary may help identify potential triggers. However, it's crucial to consult a healthcare provider, dietitian or kinesiologist before making significant dietary changes.

    9. Stress Management: Stress can exacerbate HS symptoms, so consider incorporating relaxation techniques like deep breathing exercises, yoga, or meditation into your daily routine.

    Remember that HS varies from person to person, and what works for one individual may not work for another. Our HS Sample Pack contains both Benchmark Thyme and Tea Tree products in sample sizes. Ideal for doing patch tests on your unique skin.

    What triggers HS Flare-ups?

    Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) flare-ups can be triggered by a variety of factors. These triggers may include friction or chafing in the affected areas, excessive sweating, hormonal changes, obesity, smoking, and genetics. Moreover, stress, certain foods, and clothing choices can also play a role in exacerbating symptoms. Identifying and managing these triggers is crucial for individuals with HS, as it can help reduce the frequency and severity of flare-ups and improve their overall quality of life.

    How to get rid of head lice naturally

    How to get rid of head lice naturally

    If you've ever found yourself scratching your head because of head lice, you're not alone.

    Head lice is every parents nightmare and without a doubt, one of the most unwelcome visitors. These minuscule creatures can turn our world upside down, causing endless itching, discomfort, and let's face it, social embarrassment. But before you throw your hands up in despair, let's dive deeper into the world of head lice and explore the reasons why they're such a nuisance and how to conquer the inconvenience of head lice once and for all.

    What are head lice?

    Head lice are a type of parasitic insect. They are very small, typically measuring only a few millimeters in length when fully grown. They are specially adapted to live on the scalp and in the hair of humans and can cause itching and discomfort. These parasites are most commonly found in school-aged children, but they can affect people of all ages. Head lice are highly contagious and can spread through close personal contact, such as sharing hats, combs, or pillows. While they are not a sign of poor hygiene, treating head lice promptly is essential to prevent the spread to others and to alleviate the itching and irritation they cause.

    Does natural head lice treatment work?

    Natural head lice treatments are often considered superior to supermarket products for several compelling reasons. Firstly, natural treatments often target not only the lice but also their eggs, increasing their effectiveness. Secondly, repeated use of commercial products can lead to lice developing resistance, while natural remedies offer a less predictable environment for lice to adapt to. Additionally, natural remedies typically contain fewer harsh chemicals, reducing the risk of skin irritation or allergies, especially in sensitive individuals, such as children. Moreover, they are environmentally friendly, as they avoid the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers that can harm ecosystems. 

    How to get rid of head lice naturally?

    Tea Tree Oil is widely regarded as one of the most effective natural treatments for head lice. Its potent antimicrobial and insecticidal properties make it a formidable adversary for these parasites. When applied to the scalp and hair, tea tree oil kills the lice in their nymph and adult stages, disrupting their life cycle. Furthermore, its soothing properties can alleviate the itching and irritation caused by lice infestations.

    How to use Tea Tree Oil to treat head lice:

    1. For bad infestations add our organic Tea Tree Essential Oil to our Organic Tea Tree Shampoo before application. Approx. 8-12 drops in a 100ml size or 20-30 in a 250ml bottle. Shake bottle thoroughly to mix.
    2. Wet hair and apply normal amount of shampoo. Massage into scalp for at least 2 minutes using your fingertips and getting right through to the whole scalp but without scratching it. Foaming is not important but getting shampoo/soap right through to the scalp is.
    3. Rinse thoroughly and apply shampoo/soap for second time, again massaging right into scalp. For this second application use lots of shampoo, massaging it into the scalp a little at a time so that it does not drip off. Foaming should be kept to a minimum as you are trying to suffocate the head lice and foam is mainly air. 
    4. Wrap head securely in a towel, leave for at least 1 hour to kill as many lice as possible before rinsing thoroughly.
    5. Apply our organic Tea Tree Conditioner and massage with the fingertips right through to the scalp. Leave on scalp for 2 minutes. (This will also make it easier when combing the hair through.)
    6. Using a special nit comb, comb out dead/dying lice and any lice eggs before rinsing thoroughly.
    7. Leave hair to dry naturally if possible.
    8. Repeat 8 days after first application.
    9. Treat the whole family at least to begin with.

     

    Regular use of these products should keep nits away as well as keep hair and scalps healthy and looking good naturally without any harsh chemicals.

     

    Natural Head Lice Treatment

    What keeps head lice away from hair?

    Tea Tree Oil scent repels nits, to effectively keep head lice away, a two-pronged approach can be highly effective. Firstly, replacing your shampoo with our Organic Tea Tree Shampoo can help eliminate these pesky insects. Tea tree oil's inherent insect-repelling qualities make it a superb option for combating head lice infestations. Apply the Tea Tree Shampoo generously to wet hair, massage it in and let it sit for the recommended duration as per the product instructions. Secondly, to prevent re-infestation and the spread of lice, it's essential to keep long hair tied back. Lice typically spread through direct head-to-head contact, and restraining hair in a bun, ponytail or plait can minimise this risk. Regularly inspecting hair and using a fine nite comb to remove any remaining lice or eggs can also be part of your proactive strategy in winning the battle against these tiny intruders.

    Is Organic Skincare better for you?

    Is Organic Skincare better for you?

    Did you know that your skin is like a super-absorbent sponge? It's the largest living and breathing organ on your body, absorbing around 60% of whatever you put on it. That means whatever you apply on your skin ends up in your bloodstream and circulates throughout your entire body. But here's the kicker: a lot of non-organic skincare products contain some pretty nasty toxins.

    Now, imagine knowing exactly what's in those products. You'd probably think twice before using them, right? That's why more and more people are making the switch to organic skincare products.

    What is Organic Skincare?

    Organic skincare refers to products made from natural, organic ingredients. These ingredients are grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The absence of these harmful chemicals in the cultivation of raw materials ensures that organic skincare is gentler on your skin and has a lower impact on the environment.

    Are Organic Products Better For your Skin?

    The short answer is yes! Organic skincare products are known for being gentle and less likely to cause skin irritation. They contain natural ingredients like Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, and Essential Oils that soothe and nourish the skin. Traditional skincare products often contain synthetic chemicals and preservatives that are absorbed through your skin. Our skin absorbs 60-70% of everything we put on it and it takes 26 seconds to do so directly into your bloodstream without any filters. Skincare made just from certified organic ingredients eliminates these toxins, reducing the risk of adverse reactions. Organic ingredients also tend to be richer in essential vitamins and antioxidants, which can help rejuvenate your skin and nourish your body naturally. For example, vitamin E in organic oils can promote skin repair and hydration.

    Why choose organic skincare?

    People are drawn to organic skincare for various reasons, and health and environmental considerations top the list. Consumers are becoming more aware of the potential harm posed by synthetic chemicals found in conventional skincare products. Many individuals are adopting a more holistic approach to their beauty routine, aligning their choices with their values of sustainability and environmental stewardship. Organic skincare products often have a natural and subtle fragrance, which appeals to those who prefer a more authentic sensory experience.

    Environmental Benefits of Organic Skincare

    Organic farming methods avoid the use of synthetic pesticides and herbicides, which can contaminate water sources and harm aquatic ecosystems. By choosing organic skincare, you indirectly support cleaner water systems. Organic farming practices also prioritise soil health through crop rotation and natural fertilisers, improving soil quality and biodiversity. Healthy soils are essential for long-term sustainability.

    Organic skincare brands like New Dawn Organic Skin and Hair Care are deeply committed to prioritising the well-being of the environment, suppliers, animals, and people at all stages of the skincare product lifecycle. Choosing skincare products that are not harmful to your health and the environment has many important benefits for you and the world.

    How to Choose Organic Skincare

    When venturing into the world of organic skincare, it's essential to make informed choices.

     Here are some tips to help you select the right products:

    1. Look for Certification: Certified organic products carry labels from reputable organisations like the USDA, Ecocert, or COSMOS. These certifications ensure that the product meets strict organic standards. All our products are made using only certified organic ingredients.
    2. Read Ingredient Lists: Check the ingredient list for recognisable, natural ingredients. Avoid products with long lists of synthetic chemicals or unpronounceable additives.
    3. Skin Type Consideration: Select products tailored to your skin type. New Dawn Organic Skin and Hair Care offers a wide range of solutions for various skin needs, from acne through to menopause skin.
    4. Patch Testing: Although organic products are natural, everyone’s skin is unique. Before fully incorporating a new product into your routine, perform a patch test to ensure your skin reacts positively. Sample Sizes are ideal for this.

     

    Organic Skin and Hiar Care

     

    Organic skincare is more than just a trend, it's a lifestyle choice that harmonizes health and environmental values. By opting for certified organic products, you not only pamper your skin with the goodness of nature but also contribute to a cleaner, greener planet. So, why wait? Dive into the world of organic skincare and discover the beauty of health and environmental harmony.
