We are committed to providing a scent-aware environment.
Kulhay Wellness Centre is scent-aware because scents/fragrances can make some of our patients and staff feel sick. We want to create and maintain a healthy and safe environment for those who visit the clinic in search of healing.
While we cannot guarantee there will be no fragrance whatsoever at the clinic, we do request that all staff and patients respect the health of others and use unscented/fragrance-free personal care products. This includes perfume, cologne, scented aftershave, lotions, soaps, sprays, and hair products.
Facts about Fragrances, Scents, and Perfumes
Fragrances are mixtures of hundreds of different chemicals designed to have a particular scent.
Most of the chemicals in fragrances remain in the air for a long time.
Some people are more sensitive to perfumes and other scented products than others. The health effects of fragrances can include: headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, and shortness of breath/wheezing.
Fragrance-free products are preferred over Scent-free or Unscented. Such products are available at local health stores/drugstores/grocery stores at the same price as their scented versions.
