I grew up in the woods. I wasn’t deserted and raised by wolves. My parents love me, not as much as they love my brother, but it doesn’t bother me that much.
We live near the forest. Growing up at nature’s doorstep, I’v always loved wooden things, especially the smell of the forest. When I see wooden products nowadays, the memories of me running around trees in my childhood appear before my eyes. Imagine my delight when I saw these Red Cedar Strips scented wood air fresheners.
What are they
Red Cedar Strips are sticks of western red cedar scented wood in a gauze bag. You put them in your closets, shoe cabinets, cars, and all sorts of enclosed space. Red cedar has a natural fragrance that helps to freshen the air. Kind of like sandalwood.
I thought of planting a tree in my current place. But I don’t think I can wait long enough for the tree to grow from seeds. Transplanting a grown tree is too obvious. My landlord would notice. He wasn’t happy with that tiny Christmas
shrub tree last year…
The problem is, the only house I own is the paper house my niece made for me. She wrote on the front door of the house: “For my single auntie ❤️.” Kids are always so adorable that I sometimes want to punch them, and their parents too.
What problem do they solve
These Red Cedar Strips please every one of my nerves because of their lovely natural fragrance. If you had a boyfriend who disliked showering, you would understand why I appreciate good smells so much.
The right smell soothes you after a day of working your ass off (or for some, working your boss off). The wrong one makes you want to be single.
Who are they for
They are for people like me who have boyfriends (or girlfriends) who are allergic to showering. Nah, just kidding. I’ve never had any boyfriends.
The Red Cedar Strips are for anyone who want natural scents in their homes. Something that isn’t synthetic or too overpowering. Either way, their scent is very calming, and they are soothing pieces to look at. Who needs a boyfriend when you’ve got some wood?
Are they innovative
It’s wood, so I wood not say it’s an innovative product. It’s a simple idea with a simple production process. How fancy can this get? The key is to keep the wood as natural as possible. They just cut the wood and worked on the surface so you won’t get splinters in your
These Red Cedar Strips are like me in real life, common but wholesome. (Yes, I do dead baby jokes occasionally, but I identify as a wholesome person.)
Are they worth it
At $3 for 20 strips, it’s a great deal. I mean, what can we do with $3 in our daily lives Why not spend it on something that can scent your closets, your room, and your car?
The wood comes from sustainable sources so you don’t need to worry that you’re killing trees.
What are the alternatives
If you want to freshen things up with natural fragrance, there are many other options you can choose from. There are many ways to create pleasing aromas, from air fresheners, scent candles, and reed diffusers. And these generally produce a stronger fragrance as they produce fumes that spread in the air more readily compared to the natural oils in the Red Cedar Strips.
Is a stronger scent better? It depends on how you enjoy the aromas invading your nose. If you prefer something more organic and don’t attack your olfactory receptors, then the Red Cedar Strips is a good shout. And they are a lot cheaper and last longer than the alternatives.
