    I just found out the hard way. We have to be extremely careful about plant terpenes. Some of them can be very dangerous for us. I smelled some rosemary and had a very, very bad reaction.

    I read about Raya French in England who was allergic to tomatoes. She developed the allergy about three years before she died. She was very careful about not comsuming any. But, she was fixing dinner for her children and opened a can, had a reaction, used her epi pen three times which didn't help. She went into a coma and died. This was from (apparently) only smelling the tomatoes.
