Is your perfume or cologne controlling your behavior? Is it possible that you are addicted? Let’s take a look at fragrances and see how they function in the human body. Let’s consider their addictive qualities and their capacity to control how we live.

The Addictive Power of Toxic Perfumes and Colognes

Compassion versus Addiction

It is quite fascinating to watch the power of addiction. People may have great compassion for homeless cats and dogs, may be very supportive of all kinds of community charity projects, and may be loving parents and grandparents, however, when it comes to the effect of fragranced products on the health of other people, they seem to have very little compassion. They might give you the shirt off their back, but don’t get between them and their perfume or dryer sheets. It really is no different than any other addiction. Cigarettes, alcohol, and sugar all exercise the same power to control behavior and to repel anyone who might dare to interfere with their being satisfied by their drug of choice, which in this case is fragrance.

An Addict doesn’t have Compassion for Those He Hurts

A person who is addicted, whether it is to alcohol, drugs, food, pornography, or perfume, will not allow anyone else’s need to interfere with their need to keep using a certain substance. This may not be conscious, since most perfume users probably don’t suspect that they are addicted. In their mind, they just love perfume and cologne, and they can’t imagine how other people could dislike what they love or even be made sick by what makes them feel good.

Conclusion

It is not just the health of those who are exposed to secondhand fragrance that is at stake, it is also the health of those who use fragranced products. Fragrances affect the physical, emotional, and hormonal health of everyone who uses them or smells them, though the negative consequences are rarely attributed to fragrances. Unexplained headaches, compulsive eating, inability to think clearly, and sinus congestion can be just a few of the consequences of using perfume, cologne, and products containing fragrance.

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!

    Wow do I have empathy with these statements.I think that was the hardest thing when I became disabled with chemical sensitivities is understanding how really loving compassionate people would refuse to do something as simple as stop wearing fragrances so that I could be healthy and keep my job and live a “normal” life. These people gave of their time, money, clothes, food… to help people — often strangers — but refused to stop wearing fragrances. It wasn’t until I realized it was like asking an alcoholic to not drink that next beer. Lots of Luck.

      • Colleen says:

        If only we could convince people to stop using all toxic chemicals especially those synthetic or toxic fragrances for say a month and then assess if they still wanted to wear them — after their bodies have had time to detox — I don’t think most of them would ever go back.

      • Colleen says:
