Fresh air does not smell of fragrance

Frisk luft lukter ikke av parfyme.

Romance and asthma

Do you have a loved one who have asthma? Asthma, romance and romantic settings is that possible?


But what you have to take in account is what the person get sick from, do ask before you start making this big romantic date. People having asthma react to so many different things so you better make the trouble asking.

In  general I can say that clean air is the best environment, so skip scented candles, burning any candles, incense, any fragrance product, avoid fireplaces, and no smoking. And remember that allergy can be airborne so do not be flagrant about allergies, it is nothing romantic about getting sick.

Still you can make a romantic setting.

Buy battery-powered candles that is fragrance free. You can fill the whole room with it since it do not pollute the air.


Check out what flowers the person is tolerant to and what makes the person sick. Maybe artificial flowers looking the real deal is a better choice. Look for alternative decorations the person tolerate. You do not want your loved one to become ill.

Dust is bad news for asthma, so is fragrance cleaning agents. When you are going to clean use only fragrance free products for cleaning. In the store do choose something mild that do not have a strong or stingy odor. Remember that fragrance products gasses off to the air, and that is bad for the lungs. For dusting do only use water and a cloth.

If you have pets: Pets are like family members. If the person is allergic to you pet then maybe you have to see that you will have to choose between your pet and this person in the long run. Are you willing to do that?

In all are you willing to adapt to your loved ones asthma and allergies? Remember that the person having asthma and allergies can not choose not to have asthma and allergy, it is a life long commitment. It is not something you can ask them to stop doing.

Make some food and make sure to air out well before your guest arrive. Some people who have asthma react to cookery fumes. But remember that exhaust is bad too so you do not want the room full of that.

Go romantic!

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.
