Generally, you should avoid smelling it. I guess you figured that out.
Unless you are doing a "Lung Protocol", but those are very small dosages / concentrations compared to oral.
Sometimes I do take a whiff when I am mixing it, just as a pseudo-lung protocol. But you have to be careful.
The smell SHOULD go away fairly quickly. (I presume)
Chlorine Dioxide is very / fairly volatile and evaporates and dissipates fairly quickly most of the time.
(based on temperature and exposure to atmosphere)
I, personally, wouldn't worry about it. I wouldn't think it would even be a short term issue.
My sister was mixing it and had it up close to her face and got kind of lightheaded.
I told her she should probably not have it up close to her face when she's mixing it.
And, just so people know, in case you don't, NEVER put something right up to your nose and smell it,
especially a 'big whiff'. Hold it several inches away and use your hand to push some smell toward you,
sniff it lightly, and, once you know it is not too strong, you can bring it closer. That is the safe way to
smell anything and everything.
