In the past few months, I have been noticing a strong sensitivity to fragrance oils. I have tried denial...turns out it's not just an river in Egypt. I've been telling myself that it must be something else, that I'm just imagining it, etc, etc,. But it never fails. As soon as I open up a bottle, use some lotion, or am around anything even remotely scented, the back of my throat/nose/sinuses starts to burn, and my eyes start to water. It doesn't even have to be synthetic fragrances. Essential oils do it to me too!
This is so not good. I work with scents on a daily basis. I LOVE scents! However, I can't take it anymore. Now I understand what my Aunt has been suffering all these years. Turns out she wasn't just being over-the-top dramatic when she banished anything scented from her environs.
I'm not sure what to do here...how to get around this. I don't want this little sensitivity to put the kibosh on my body products. We'll see what happens.
