You’re a human being, not an air freshener! ?
Let’s talk about your body's natural odor and why it doesn’t always serve to cover it up.
Do you know your body's scent
carries loads of information? Including:
If you’re a good
match with someone
in the bedroom! ???
It is vital to smell your
natural scent, to see if
it appeals to you!
Your olfactory glands take
in their “body codes” and indicate if
your body chemistry aligns with theirs.
(Not to mention, if you would eventually
be a good - i.e. diverse - genetic
match to have children together. ?
Not being acquainted
with your love’s body odor
and choosing a genetically
similar person could lead to
infertility issues, miscarriages,
and children with weaker immune
systems...which all obviously can
take a toll on a relationship.)
Rather important to know, eh?
When going out with someone,
many people slather on various
scents (yes, even natural ones
like essential oils count, haha!).
What if you tried out going
au natural sometimes? ?
Letting the person
actually take in,
(Obviously, I’m not saying show up
not having showered in three and
a half days...but simply seeing
what happens when you
mammal it up a bit.) ?
Have you ever had that experience where
someone is physically attractive to you,
but once you smell them or taste them,
it just doesn’t appeal to you?
That is super important info! ?
While I know many of you who follow me
on here probably left conventional
birth control behind long ago, over
TEN MILLION women in the US
still turn to the pill (a whole other
topic to dive into later).
This has an effect that’s rarely
spoken about in the mainstream:
It massively alters women’s olfactory
system...which means, quite literally, that
she cannot sniff out a good mate. ??
A widespread issue that’s happened as
a result of this is women getting off birth
control to have children with a long-term
partner...only to realize that the attraction
isn’t actually there with him and/or having
the aforementioned fertility issues.
This can all be prevented by being intentional
about it early on in relationship and, of course,
using a more natural birth control method,
like cycle tracking. ?
(Note: Various hormonal, mineral, or nutrient
imbalances can also throw off our scent.
So my invitation is to know if that’s a factor
in your dynamic. Additionally, know that a
woman's scent changes based on where
she is on her cycle; she likely will smell
a lot more scrumptious to you
- aka "Eau de DoMeNowIAmFertile" -
when she's around her ovulation peak.)
I‘m incredibly curious....
Do you let your natural scent out? ?
Have you had experiences with either
being super drawn to someone’s
smell or turned off by it?
