This is exactly what I have been experiencing! I have been using CPTG essential oils for over a year & all of a sudden a few moths ago I started having rashes with my lavender. I’m surprised because I’ve never had allergies or skin sensitivities before. Lavender is one of the most gentle oils & used for skin so I’m sad & frustrated about my reactions. Even diluted I get a rash. It’s also one of my favorites. I’m hoping I will be able to use it in the future. I’m glad I found this thread so at least I’m not alone!
Due to the rareness of the disorder there is no well-defined treatment. Sometimes the patients are just told to live with the disorder or the patients end up performing "stereotypical methods" that might help in reducing the severity of the odor. This might include forced crying, bending over holding knees while holding breath, rinsing the nose with saline water and gagging. All these behaviours at the end fail to resolve the hallucination. Various treatments like prophylactic have been suggested but more research is needed for its confirmation. Also, due to being a poorly understood disorder, and having analogies to some psychiatric conditions, some patients are told that they have a mental illness. It is also usual for these patients to have suicidal thoughts as they are not provided with much support or hope from many physicians.
