Alternative to scented candles and air fresheners

Many candles, unless they are made of 100% natural waxes, give off noxious vapors when burned.  30% of candles have wicks that contain heavy metals.  Air fresheners contain ingredients such as phthalates that are toxic and hazardous that can irritate the respiratory system and affect the liver and kidneys.  A good alternative to using scented candles and air fresheners is using an essential oil diffuser.  Essential oils that are great for the respiratory system include rosemary, thyme, sage, and bergamot.
