Certain odors trigger my allergies, while others trigger my migraine. Recently I have become more aware of what I wear may affect others too.

I don’t know why I never thought of it before. I guess it didn’t dawn on me that I could do something about it. I know others don’t seem to care if something they do affects me.

My biggest migraine trigger is marijuana smoke. Since it became legal here in Vegas, people seem to think it’s okay to smoke anywhere. It’s not okay! It’s not legal in public. And it gives me migraines.

It’s easier to walk away from an odor that triggers a sneezing fit for me, but once the migraine is triggered it’s there. My rescue med may or may not help. Sleep is the only thing that might give me some relief. I say might because I have had a migraine last for months.

So, though I love some scents, I only use them when I won’t be going out. And that is getting fewer and farther between because I am used to not putting any on now.

I have a diffuser necklace that I can put some essential oil onto that helps relax or energize me depending on my need. I think it helps with the scent I need without being overpowering. And it’s easy to remove if someone has an adverse reaction to it.

Do you have smells that trigger illness?

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
