why we avoid fragrance

Are you still using conventional candles, wall plug-ins, wax melts, perfumes, laundry detergent, and anything else with “fragrance” in it?

I’m here to tell you it is just. not. worth. it.

The risks are very real and there are enough safe alternatives that there is no reason to keep supporting brands who use this harmful ingredient or to subject yourself and family to it. 

Bath and Body Work’s safety sheet literally states that its products are known to be harmful to an unborn baby.

The one ingredient “fragrance” can hold thousands of other undisclosed ingredients that together wreak havoc on your health. 

Fragrance has been linked to a variety of adverse health effects such as:

headaches

nausea 

neurotoxic symptoms 

asthma attacks 

hormone disruption 

… and more

You can switch to safer products! Is there something in your home that you haven’t been able to break up with yet? Drop it in a comment and I will recommend safe alternatives for you!
