In such a confined space, there are several sources of air pollution may cause health problems, allergies, or serious illness.

This is true that air fresheners are temporary solutions to bad odors; but these fresheners are NOT health friendly.

What kind of method can comfortable space build for “an allergic patient?”
Is it an “air filter” air cleaner?
Is it a “plasma ion” air cleaner?
The corpse of “dust” and “the house tick” or a parasitic corpse sticking to a pet hits on allergy.
In the case of “a flavor”, the case of the allergic patient of “the organic solvent” will come under it.
The same symptom will come out to a person making “an allergic reaction” to an organic solvent used for “new kinds of building materials”.
This is an important problem.
I have been talked in old days in Japan if “the hair treatment” was toxic.
Because this product is familiar to life,
I am very dangerous to “a baby, an infant”.
An adult is keeping it in mind in a method by “scrupulous attention”.
This is my opinion.

You mix it in a shallow pan in te center of the room and when I return from work my rooms smell fresh and clean.
