I can't wear perfume anymore. Like, not at all. And I probably can't be around you if you have recently applied any or are really heavy handed with it. Instant headache. Artificial scents and fragrances basically make me ill. Essential oils on the other hand..... I have no problems with those. While I don't really have the time to be blending up my own smell good potions, I have been relying on this amazing mist from Aura Cacia. It is so light, so uplifting, so clean smelling. I keep it in my purse and spray myself, my kids, my car, my husband, anyone who I think might need it.
