Have you ever had a bad smell cause you a headache or even a migraine? Well it did for me today. I was waiting in line at the post office today when a woman walked by with the most awful stench I've ever smelled. It's worse than the worst fart. It was worse than smelling gas or petrol vapours at the petrol station. The smell was so smelly I would classify it worse than rotten eggs, rotting fish or even driving by a decomposing garbage dump. Have a shower woman! (Or at least use deodorant)
The smell emanating from this woman was so powerful that even though she only spent about 10 seconds in the vicinity, the smell hung around for a long time. It made me gag and I noticed the other people waiting in the line rolling their eyes, coughing and covering their noses.
It's instances like this that make me a believer of aromatherapy. Therapy from smells. Bad smells can make you feel sick - even giving you headaches. Good smells from different oils can influence mood. Or so the theory says.
