"Humans have been living and evolving in close contact with the natural aromatic substances found in the plant and animal kingdoms for millions of years. And so, the human immune system is well acclimatised and harmoniously attuned to these natural aromatic substances.

"Most people are naively unaware of the damage and derangement that artificial, synthetic fragrances can do to their respiratory tracts and immune systems.
