I wish I would have known about using essential oils for sinus congestion when I was growing up. I had chronic post nasal drip that was so very irritating!

The potential danger of household cleaners was brought to my attention as a young girl by hearing frequent retellings of my mother’s nearly life-threatening experience during an attempt to sanitize a toilet bowl.

Other triggers for migraines can be monosodium glutamate and other food preservatives, synthetic fragrances, and environmental allergic reactions.

We can grumble about the onslaught of chemical fragrances out there but where does the true responsibility rest? There are some environments we cannot control, but we can make choices about what we put in our shopping carts and allow in our homes. If you have products that are synthetically fragranced there is a way to solve this problem. THROW THEM AWAY and replace them with unscented or truly natural scented items.
An attractive young man exchanges lusty glances with a scantily clad, heavily airbrushed supermodel as a breath of wind seductively tousles her hair.....what fragrance ad is it for this time? Allure? Sexy? Irresistible? Illusion? One was accurately named....Poison!
