Allergies where to start…lemongrass, milk and milk products, cats, dogs (yep I’m allergic to my dog, she can’t lick me), sheep, bunnies, alpacas, goats, lol let’s just say all animal fibers, certain flowery smells, Petroleum jelly, almost all lip balms don’t have issues with burt’s bees only one that I haven’t gotten chapped and annoyed lips from (funny it’s got lanolin but seems fine), products with high glycerol/glycine content cause issues as well, feathers, dust, mold, pollens, beef ( have to be careful because beef lard is in some cookies!, vegetable shortening is my friend!) and there is more to the list but that’s all you need to know really. I hope I didn’t hurt your head, sorry. The combination of sensitive skin and allergies really sucks at times. Also I’m not fond of smoke smell and I live in a non-smoking household I’m not sure if we answered the question before this.
