Scent Free might help you with your allergies!! If you're like a lot of folks with allergies, you may want to stay away from strong fragrances. When you breathe in the scent from things like candles, soaps, laundry detergents, and even some tissues, it can trigger your hay fever symptoms. Before you know it, you may sneeze, cough, and get a stuffy, runny, or itchy nose. Headaches and rashes aren't out of the question, either.

For some people, these symptoms are caused by an allergic to fragrances, which means their immune system -- the body's defense against germs -- overreacts. But for others, the problems start up because the scent irritates the airways directly.

Some other things you can try: Buy unscented or fragrance-free. Keep in mind, though, that some products with a "natural fragrance" may still contain chemicals that trigger a reaction. Avoid anything that lists "fragrance" on the label. Even things that don't have a smell may use fragrances to hide chemical odors.
