Allergies? yes lots...where to start all animal fibers of any percentage, lactose(milk and milk products - usually okay in baked goods in small doses), lemongrass. a lot of perfumes (most smelling like flowers), cats, dogs, cigarette smoke (sensitivity), 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
14. Anything you really love, really don't like, or just need to get off your chest? I'm not fond of pastels. It may seem like a pain in the arse, but please, please, please check items you send with the lengthy list of allergies! I thank you lots!!!!
