Going out in public can be a challenge for me. The person standing in line behind me can cause a tingling sensation in my brain. Hours later that feeling can lead to a debilitating headache. I suffer from Migraine headaches and my main trigger is fragrances.
Our society embraces fragrances. There are everywhere. It is nearly impossible for me to escape. Fragrances are pumped through stores, they are in laundry products, make-up, soaps and cleaning products.
I would like to live in a world with more fragrance free products. I would like people to be aware of how their fragrances may affect others and themselves. I would love to know which chemicals in the fragrances are the ones causing my issues and other people’s too.
I would love to hear your thoughts on these subjects and if you know someone who is also affected by scents. Please comment.
