Should you give your Valentine perfume?
When I think perfume, I think instant headache. I'm okay with essential oils, in fact I love essential oils, the fragrance that comes directly from the plant. But most perfumes are synthetic and contain carcinogenic substances. More and more, people are realizing that chemicals don't actually smell that great, and that they are dangerous. When something can cause cancer, it doesn't matter how pretty the bottle is or which celebrity endorses it. Toxic does not equal sexy. For more on this, the EWG is a great source, check their website and this video, detailing the dangers of fragrance.
