Perfume . who knows the truth

Updated: Apr 2





What do perfume and Mr. Bubble have in common?


Brilliant commercials




Who else waited for Mr. Bubble to appear?




Mr. Bubble commercials started in 1961


Oh how I loved Mr. Bubble commercials


As kids, my sis and I would excitedly gather bubbles into a face-sized mound

And wait and wait and wait

For Mr. Bubble

We even sang the Mr. Bubble song


Alas, Mr. Bubble never appeared

I was devastated

I just knew he would make an appearance


He never did


I truly believed the commercial




And then there are the perfume commercials

Perfume makes you desirable

IRRESISTIBLE

I'm all in!



Am I one of the few people who didn't know the truth about perfume until recently?









PERFUME . why does it make me feel sick


(including scented lotion . cologne)



For years I wore my favorite perfume

I wanted to smell good

As the commercials said

It made me desirable

And everyone was wearing it


It also made me super NAUSEOUS


And yet, I still wore it

Not really connecting the dots that

When I wore it, I felt sick


Or not wanting to know


AND

I assumed that what we eat

What we wear

Is 'okay' and must be healthy


I must just be over-sensitive to scents



I WAS WRONG



I was around 50 when I learned

Most perfumes/scents in products - are toxic


The ingredients

Are disgusting if you do your research

Liquids used to make plastics

Ingredients that cause cancer, damage to organs

Makes you Sick . Literally



This makes me damn mad

And it should make you damn mad too



Why are toxic chemicals allowed in items that we put on our skin

Our laundry detergent

Our cleaning solutions

Our makeup


Now that I know better

I do better

Not perfect, not always

But better


There are now some perfumes that are

Made with natural ingredients

I buy and use essential oils

The smell is magical . some are healing

And no harsh chemicals


From what I understand

Doterra and Young Living

are two of the most revered essential oils

Based on how they're extracted




One of the most important things I've learned in almost 60 years...

NATURAL is best



More on NATURAL later in regard to medicine




Did you already know about perfume? If so, how long did it take you to find out?
