For most of you who follow my blog, you already know my answer to this. You have heard me talk about it many times including a post I wrote, Layers of Fragrance. From the time a person gets up in the morning (and probably more so with women), they are putting layer upon layer of fragrances on their skin and at the same time adding chemical after chemical which is absorbed through the skin. From the shower products, to the lotions and perfumes, to the laundry soaps and fabric softeners or dry cleaned clothes, and lastly their perfumes or cologne, all those chemicals are slowly poisoning their bodies.
Their answer is that they smell nice and they like the way their shampoo leaves their hair smelling or the lotion leaves their skin smelling. They haven’t become sick (Or Have They?) so why give up these wonderful delicious smelling products. I say that they are having health issues that are not sending big signals that they are aware of. They may be having big health issues that their doctor isn’t able to figure out the cause of so they are given medications.
Thanks to a recent Facebook by my dear friend Jennie Sherwin, I read this article from Prevention. It just repeats what many of us who suffer from chemical sensitivity (MCS) have been saying for some time. The chemicals in all these products are indeed making us sick. Thank you Jennie for sharing this.
