We love any blogger’s post that includes the shout-out, “Purely Products is my kind of company.” But then able2able.com put Healthy CFL, the little air purifier wrapped in a compact fluorescent lightbulb, to the ultimate smell test – baby poo and doggie drool.
You can read her entire review including her passion for Pocket Purifier here, but check out her family’s bottom line on the bulb.
“I also reviewed the Healthy light bulb. This innocent looking compact fluorescent lightbulb actually has an air purifier in its middle. The Healthy CFL cleans the air of cigarette smoke, pollen, mold, germs, dust, odors, pet dander and other airborne contaminants. As it cleans, the built-in ionizer also counters the draining effects of positive ions emitted every day by items like computers, cell phones, televisions, and forced air ventilation, while flowing a steady stream of refreshing negative ions into the air to boost mood and energy. Yeah, I was happy to have two of these in my home!
So does the Healthy CFL work?
My Red Dog loves to sneak on the couch when we are out on Clara-Bear’s longer appointment days. I discovered he was drooling on my couch when I started coming home to a closed up house with a funky smell. Now I leave the living room light with the Healthy CFL bulbs in it and I no longer notice a dog smell or closed up stuffy smell, even with the a/c turned up to 79 degrees. Since the Healthy CFL uses 80% less energy than a traditional light bulb we have not noticed an increase in our electricity bill with the light on all day.
I also had to move my essential oil diffuser out of the living room since I could not smell my beautiful oils. And I put the Healthy CFL to the ultimate, grossest test yesterday. I changed a super-pooper diaper underneath it, turned the a/c temp up, and left the house for an hour. I was relieved not to smell poop when we returned!”
“Since we have a houseful of asthma, allergies, and exzema, I really like knowing that allergens and triggers are being cleaned by the Healthy CFL’s along with the funk.”

That’s one of the conclusions from a mother with an environmental science background with an interest in brain chemistry exploring the contributing factors to ADD, attention deficit disorder. In a blog on her website, Born to Explore, The Other Side of ADD, Teresa Gallagher details a plan to create balance with hormones that affect brain chemistry.
Our ears perked up when she got to serotonin levels.
is a hormone that is found naturally in the human brain. Serotonin can be considered a “happy” hormone, as it greatly influences an overall sense of well-being. It also helps to regulate moods, temper, anxiety, and relieve depression. It is also credited with being a natural sleep aid.
Gallagher lists stress, modern food processing, lack of exercise & sleep, poor nutrition, and deionized air as principal causes of reduced serotonin levels.
21st century lifestyles take their toll even as they make life easier with all the eletronics that fill every possible crook and nanny (uh, that would be nook and cranny if I were paying attention) of our lives. Gallagher ticks off a top ten plus one list of proactive, non-medicating, more organic steps to take to create more balance in your brain’s lab.
Tips 1 through 10, you can incorporate some healthy new lifestyle habits right now, like more sleep and exercise, improve your diet, meditate or do yoga, keep cool, add in B vitamins, look for ways to relieve stress every day.
Tip No. 11?
Buy an air ionizer. Yes, it sounds weird, but air with negatively charged particles appears to help out serotonin in the brain. Pollution and the modern world have nearly eliminated naturally charged air in urban areas. You can feel the pleasant effect of negative ions wherever there is running water, like an ocean beach or near a waterfall. The opposite – positive ions – are generated by warm winds moving over dry land, like the Santa Ana winds of California, which are known to increase irritability…”
Tip #11. Got that covered. Plug into
Negative ion generators that emit 2,000,000 negative ions (also known as anions) per cubic centimeter counter the energy-draining effects of positive ions emitted by electronics, household materials, and other trappings of modern living. In your car, at your computer, in front of your big-screen tv – wherever you are bombarded by positive ions, you can plug in an Ionic Lifestyle unit from
Purely Products, a leader in negative ion technology, and naturally charge the air, increasing “feel good” serotonin levels and improving oxygen flow to the brain.
