A Blog For Those Affected By Environmental And Invisible Illnesses Written By Fellow Survivors
What is body odor? What makes someone smell clean? In our society, we equate a perfume-y, fragranced smell with clean and normal body odor as dirty.
My boyfriend has not washed with soap in five years. He was nervous when we first met that I would think he smelled bad. On the contrary, I actually really loved his smell. That's because his diet is pure and he has minimal exposure to toxins in personal care and other types of products. So there is no bad smelly stuff to sweat out. Just normal human smell. I much prefer it to nasty chemicals in fragrances that are just masking over dirt.
If you smell bad enough to want to use perfume, take a good look at your diet and lifestyle and start cleaning those up before you reach for the carcinogenic chemicals in fragranced products.

Thanks for posting this...very interesting subject! Since developing MCS 7 years ago I have used only unfragranced soaps and usually no deodorant and have had no complaints (to my face at least!). I also have a very pure diet with no dairy, wheat, minimal meat and lots of vegetables, pulses, nuts and seeds. I have tried mineral salt deodorants which are fine, if a little watery, but I don't feel they are necessary.Like 0
