A happy alternative to chemical fragrances

essential-oils-6_0-min

Alternative to chemical fragrances – The information on the toxic effects of chemical fragrances is exploding in the health industry. “The-New-Second-Hand-Smoke” is what people are now calling perfumes and colognes. The fumes linger for hours and are not only hazardous to the users, but bystanders as well. Ever notice the increase of signs in public waiting places, “No Scents Please”? This is because inhaling these invisible petrochemicals, containing hormone-disrupting phthalates, can cause a slew of damage to our nervous systems. Here are a few…

Respiratory: allergic and non-allergic asthma, reactive airway dysfunction syndrome
Neurological: migraines, nausea, dizziness, mental confusion
Skin: irritation, sensitization
Eye: tearing, inflammation

Other effects are linked to reduced sperm count, liver and breast cancers, reproductive malformation and diabetes! Many skeptics out there choose not to believe that an innocent cosmetic spray or household cleaner can affect our health so negatively. But the reality is unfortunate… we live in a world where we need to start taking accountability and making choices that go against the grain, and waking up to the fact that the FDA might not have all the long term answers, or that the consumer markets do not take our health as a priority over capital gain. They put these scents in more than just perfumes. They are hidden in most cosmetics including creams and soaps, household cleaners and detergents, candles, medications, sunscreen, even diapers! The list goes on. Don’t be fooled by ‘unscented’ products. They create that ‘non-scent’ by adding more fragrance to mask the smell of harsh chemicals! Frustrated? Ya, no doubt.

AROMATHERAPY

The good news is we have alternatives, and the even better news is that our alternatives can be beneficial to our health! Aromatherapy has been used over the centuries to calm our nervous system… Yes, the opposite of what the chemical fragrances have been doing!

The known payoffs of aromatherapy are extensive. Inhaling essential oils stimulates the olfactory system affecting the limbic system which is linked to emotions, heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress, and hormone balance. They can provide respiratory disinfection and decongestant as well as provide psychological benefits that include reducing anxiety, easing depression and boosting energy levels.

Aromatherapy has also been used as a supplemental medicine by strengthening the immune system to increase the healing process, eliminating headaches, enhancing cognitive performance, inducing deep sleep, reducing pain, improving digestion and increasing circulation… just to name a few!
