Did you know that some hospital units don't allow live flowers?

Non-Scents was created when a dear friend, Andrew, was sent the the hospital for cancer surgery at age 22. When we called to ask where to send flowers and treats for when Andrew awoke, we were told that live flowers are a risk to patients in oncology, transplant, and intensive care units due to allergens in the flowers and bacteria from the water.

For many people, traditional gifts just aren't an option. Hospital units including oncology, transplant, and intensive care are all restricted and don't allow live flowers due to the potential risk they can pose to the patients. Outside of the hospital, individuals living with severe allergies or chemical sensitivities; even those who have recently finished chemotherapy treatments, can all be negatively affected by the smells, allergens, and bacteria carried by live flowers. This is why we created Non-Scents Flowers, making fair-trade paper flowers with custom messages held by each flower's stem. Our intention was to create a safe gift and greeting all in one. As we continued to work in healthcare, we realized that people in need of walking assistance devices for mobility and balance problems didn't have a good way to carry a bag with them without offsetting their balance. This lead us to create our collection of Bea-Dee Bags, specifically designed to work with wheel chairs and walkers. Non-Scents continues to innovate to help make life easier, and more joyful, for people in difficult situations. Every product has a meaning and a story behind it, and we can't wait to share it with you.
