Are your scented products making you sick?

by debee007

Reported Symptoms: Feeling dizzy, frequent headaches, sick to your stomach, shortness of breath, asthma attacks or even seizures.

Reason: Most scented cleaning products, laundry detergents, air fresheners (including scented candles), and personal care products emit at least one chemical that is federally regulated as toxic and/or hazardous however the chemicals, know as volatile organic compounds, are not required to be listed on the product labels.

Self Defense: Avoid any fragranced products, especially if you are sensitive to them. Also be aware that companies may use making fragrances in ‘fragrance-free’ products as well.
