Natural scents/fragrances?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Since I've spent a lot of the last year not well (including headaches) and now I have some small repreive at the moment for some reason I'm stupidly missing wearing any fragrances. Maybe because it's Christmas and I've been looking at party clothes and stuff. :PI am normally fragrance free EVERYTHING, including laundry stuff. The most I can handle is Trader Joes lavendar dish soap, lol. But only sometimes. I'm toying with the idea of maybe some kind of very light fragrance. I think it has to be natural though. And it has to be weak. Does anyone know if that exists or is there anything anyone very sensitive to everything on earth can use and be okay?

I'm also thinking about trying a few tiny drops of essential oil in a large container of bath salts for the bath. I long to spray something on my wrist but I'm afraid. Maybe I need to make my own somehow. I haven't searched online yet. I used to look at Whole foods and places like that and remember seeing some kind of natural stuff. I have to be careful even with essential oils though, which if you think about it are super concentrated. Maybe I'll just have to rub lemons on my wrist. Or strawberries. :huh:

Yeah I found "scents" Cologne and artificially overly smell things make me feel nasiuated and sick. I love just baking spices in the oven as it is the only fragrances I can stomach in my house....Heck that one time I spilled Italian seasoning and vacuumed it up....OMG my house smelled like olive garden...it was wonderful...other times i just put some apple pie or pumpkin spice on a foil sheet and preheat my oven with it then turn it off and open the door...

As for other scents natural orange scented body wash does not bother me...I found orange is a small I tolerate well. I did end up making my own cologne ....this is odd but I got some leather oil and mixed it with refined coconut oil and dab it on my wrist, neck, ....funny but I love the smell of that fresh leather. Perhaps this might work with say essential oils for lavender, or orange?

Well, I could get my fix from baking with wonderful spices as you say. In fact, maybe it is because I have been able to eat more variety that I'm even thinking of scents. I put a teeny bit of curry in my food recently and it was so amazing to smell. (I used to live in Indian and Thai restaurants:)

Maybe that really is what it's about . I also sometimes burn beeswax candles and love the smell of those. Or there are these natural bayberry candles that are really mild but nice but they are really expensive.

Your homemade cologne doesn't sound weird to me. Maybe I'll try  just making some bath salts with very small amounts of natural oil, or even lemon oil. Love your idea of just putting some fragrant foods on foil just for the purpose of the aroma. Olive Garden house, haha! Thanks, you've always got great ideas to share. I think I'll try your foil idea and maybe what I really need is just aromatherapy.
