That’s how many days this week I’ve had to up my detox and pull all my “knows” just to try and feel a little better.
Between running errands (that I couldn’t take care of online) and attending the little one’s concert- where I sat all the way in the back to avoid those who decided it was a good idea to bath in what they think is just #lovely #pretty ##scents - I was exposed to a crazy amount of toxic chemicals aka #FRAGRANCE 🤢
If you follow my stories you already know how I feel about this...I try and bring a little light and not be so negative (thanks to sponge bob for helping out😉)- However, it’s not funny and it’s a #bigdeal
Everyone is different, for me my eyes and skin itch and burn, then my throat and nose start to burn and become inflamed, then the brain fatigue, and then my breathing becomes shallow.
It can takes days to recover.
💁🏼♀️See these chemicals bioaccumulate and your body has a hard time getting rid of them. These chemicals are poisons. Poisons that not only cause acute issues but are know to cause long term health issues like hormone disruption, dna changes, cancer, and burden organs like liver and kidneys (your major detoxing organs)
📌Most of the time symptoms are present but people don’t realize what’s causing them. Also, just because you don’t have symptoms doesn’t mean long term damage isn’t being done.
📌These chemicals are found in perfumes, colognes, air fresheners, candles, household cleaners, the list goes on...
👉🏼Do I think everyone will stop using these? Nope- not at all.
👌🏼If my stories and posts reach one person and that person makes a change then is it worth it? #ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY
If you wouldn’t or wouldn’t allow smoking around your children, in your home, car, or next to someone who gets sick then #STOP using the products that contain synthetic #fragrance
If you can smell your #fragrance on yourself you are wearing too much and you are #scentblind 🤦🏼♀️ 💁🏼♀️Again...
