Many folks are sensitive to perfumes, hair sprays and and most scents.
Allergies, Asthma and Migraines can be debilitating!
People with multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS) find it difficult to visit malls, grocery stores, movie theaters, restaurants, and doctors offices, because of the toxic smells.
What is Multiple Chemical Sensitivity?
“MCS in broad terms as an unusually severe sensitivity or allergy-like reaction to many different kinds of pollutants including solvents, VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), perfumes, petrol, diesel, smoke, “chemicals” in general and often encompasses problems with regard to pollen, house dust mites, and pet fur & dander” according to MultipleChemicalSensitivity.org.
Too bad there’s not a fragrance shield to wear around the body to keep you from unwanted scents, right?
Here are a few things to do at home.
- If you have a repair person or worker coming to the house, let them know “in advance” that you are sensitive to perfumes and colognes and ask them to not wear them.
- Advise your real estate agents or friends aware of your sensitivities and hope they will honor your request to refrain from wearing scents in your presence.
- Make your home as scent and toxin free as possible. Our house is scent free and our safe haven.
