I (Maren) have spent quite a few theatre and concert outings breathing through a bandana, or when I don't have a loose piece of cloth, my own braid. I don't have asthma, but am very sensitive to most fragrances -- so I appreciate the attention being paid this month to the issue, both for the health of the user and that of nearby breathers. In recognition of Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, Women for a Healthy Environment is hosting the second annual Fragrance-free Day in Downtown Pittsburgh!
"Fragrance"...It's listed on hundreds, likely thousands of consumer and personal care products. Ever wonder what that mystery ingredient really is? Visit WHE in Market Square on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm to learn more, receive fragrance-free giveaway items, take the "Don't Spray for a Day" pledge, and enjoy live music provided by singer-songwriter Joy Ike. Featuring doTERRA Essential Oils and Third Day Luxury Soaps, guests will have the opportunity to learn more about essential oils, including how they are incorporated into natural product development. You will also have the opportunity to purchase personal care product items!
