Fragrances can be lovely when you find the right aroma for you. It can lift your mood, mask body odor and make you smell better…. hehehe.
However Fragrances particularly known as parfum, are not healthy for you. In fact Fragrances, are mixes made of undisclosed chemical scents which have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and even may have effects on the reproductive system. On the EWG scale parfum has a score of 8.
Luckily there is still hope to smell nice and be healthy. That would be essential oils which are a 1 on the EWG scale. Now you want to be careful about essential oils during pregnancy as there are certain oils that can cause miscarriage, and birth defects. I have written a list of essential oils to avoid during pregnancy in my Essential Guide for Personal Care Products During Pregnancy.
About This List
