Fresh air does not smell of fragrance

Frisk luft lukter ikke av parfyme.

Hypothetically religiously

Today we got the first Buddhist temple in Møre and Romsdal County, and that made me think of the issue asthma, allergy and Chemical Sensitivity when using a temple or church.

Both Buddhists and Catholics use incense. Incense is known to admit substances to the air that is both carcinogenic and a cause of asthma attacks. For sensitive persons incense is just as bad as scented candles, tobacco smoke, exhaust and fragrance.

In a religious perspective use of incense would make the temple or church unavailable.

I know, if I would have been a Buddhist or a Catholic, I would not be able to go, so that makes me wonder, –  So how about you? What is your experience? Have you experienced the temple or church being unavailable to you because of bad indoor air from incense?

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
