Is EcoScent Ambient Scenting better than the conventional system I use now?

- EcoScent air treatment system does not use heavy droplets. Its micron-size particles are so light they float and uniformly treat the air throughout the space. In fact, EcoScents signature scent particles are 1/50 the size of aerosol particles and uses 1/125,000 as much liquid.

Will Ambient Scenting cause an allergic reaction?

- According to OSHA standards, the fragrance and scents being diffused through EcoScents air treatment system fall far below the OSHA regulated ‘Allergy Triggers’. Because of the small particle size, with a scent effect of less than one particle per million (PPM).  The allergy threshold for most people is over 100 PPM.

-Our fragrances are made of high quality ingredients manufactured under the strict guidelines of the IFRA (International Fragrance Association). To the present day we are not aware of any allergy caused by our scents, when used according to our recommendations.

May room scenting cause headache?

-An intense fragrance may cause headache; it is a natural evidence of sense stimulation at a very high level. In general, we recommend a discrete and subtle room scenting instead of a too offensive one.  We are not aware of any headache caused by our fragrances, when scent intensity has been chosen according to our advice. Gentle room scenting provides significantly added value also for very sensitive people.
