You might detect an unpleasant smell when you walk onto an airplane or cruise ship, or into a hotel room.

No big deal, right? Wrong.

There is science – nasty science – causing that odor.

Sweat, food crumbs, bodily fluids and plain old dirt are tracked in on shoes and luggage, which are then deposited on seats, armrests and tray tables (not to mention the fact that people often change diapers on seats and tray tables!).

Air Freshener Safety

All of these are fertile breeding grounds for bacteria and fungi, which are producing these unpleasant aromas. When you smell odors, molecules enter the brain and remain there for quite some time because there is no easy way for them to escape—so be careful what you smell.

To eliminate odors – not just temporarily mask them – the bacteria and fungi that breed the odors must be eliminated. This is a longer-lasting and better-for-you option than using standard air fresheners, which either blast you with strong synthetics or trap and hide the odor molecules.

Drowning your personal space in heavy fragrances may seem satisfying, but it’s not removing what actually caused the offensive smell. The odor-causing molecule is still there, but it can’t bind to the sensory receptors in the nose, so you can’t smell it. Still, the bacteria and fungi are very much alive and multiplying!

Sooner or later, the perfumed scent disappears, the odor traps wear down, and the odor inevitably returns.

Ultimately, it’s best to avoid breathing in alcohol, bleach and synthetic fragrances, and stick to organic essential oils that come straight from nature. PlaneAire® Travel Mist is made from a powerful proprietary blend of six organic essential oils, purified water and organic fruit acids—no harmful chemicals and no camouflaging the real problem.
