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! ??? 

Seriously, darlings. 

It is vital to smell your 
[perspective] partner’s 
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, 
well, you? 

(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?
