    Default Fragrance Is The New Secondhand Smoke

    Surely you’re familiar with one of these scenarios:
    The Scented Candle That Won’t Go Away

    You walk into a store full of scented candles. They smell so fresh and lovely, but a few minutes later, your nose starts to itch and you are starting to get a headache. You notice that you’re having a harder time focusing on anything and you start to feel light-headed. You end up buying a candle and leaving, feeling better as soon as you walk out the door. A few days later, the smell of your new candle is on everything: your coat, your car, the living room – even when it’s not lit. The headache just won’t go away and you start to feel worn down and tired.

    Most public places I'm familiar with (schools, offices, hospitals etc.) have a fragrance-free policy, for which I'm grateful. If I absolutely have to walk down the laundry aisle of the supermarket, I have to breathe through the sleeve of my sweater because the smells make me sick. The worst is being seated in a crowded theatre or airplane near someone who's overdone the perfume or aftershave, and not being able to escape.

    It's hard to keep rooms from getting "stuffy" during the winter months when doors and windows can't be thrown open. Since I burn wood in two stoves, one solution is to add cinnamon sticks to the pan of water I keep on the big stove to add humidity in winter. I suppose one could do the same with a saucepan on the stovetop on the lowest heat setting.

    Please share your suggestions on how to keep bathrooms, storage areas and other closed-up places from smelling musty or generally unpleasant!

    Isn't there some sacred native meaning associated with that practice?

    The short answer is that it clears negative energy.
