Perfumes, washing detergent, aftershave, car fresheners... they are all commonly made from artificial fragrances.
Our body naturally produces odour and ‘pheromones’. Each person has an individual smell, similar to that of a finger print.
Unfortunately, we have been taught that these natural smells need to be covered up with artificial smells, especially women because nobody likes a women that smells... right? 😑 how are these chemicals disrupting our pheromones, a natural occurring chemical substance produced in the body, that sends influences other humans.
These artificial frangrances contain chemicals that once they have enter the body, must be processed by the liver and removed, which is hard work! Different people present ‘chemical allergies’ and sub optimal liver detoxification in different ways. Maybe it’s acne, asthma, inability to lose weight, nause, migraines... the presenting symptoms are far and many, whilst the education around what these chemicals DO is only just surfacing.
Don’t be embarrassed about your natural scent, instead use it as a tool. Do I smell different after coffee? Do I smell different after a big night out? That’s your body communicating to you. Take a minute and have a listen to what it’s trying to tell you 😊 #loveyourliver
