An ‘Epidemic’ of Fragranced Products is Affecting Our Health, New Research Suggests

I was so excited to discover this post. I am very sensitive to what I call “chemical fragrances”. This post finally brings light to what I have known for the past 3-4 years.

Thank you, “Our Better Health” for this article.

The recent trend for “cleaner,” more natural, unprocessed foods for improved health and well-being has also led to a shift towards household and beauty products that are also more natural and without preservatives, and possibly for good reason.
