Hello! I was so excited when I saw this website! I didn't know I hated cilantro so much til this summer when I went to Europe with my friends. We were in Madrid and went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. I ate my dinner (burritos) then went to the washroom which was downstairs and next to a huge storage cellar containing the strongest smelling herbs whose scent was wafting into the corridor and bathroom. A sudden wave of nausea overcame me and I immediately got violently ill in the toilet! I came upstairs to see my friends after I threw up everything I just ate and told them to go smell it. They didn't notice any smell but that of cilantro! For some reason the scent makes me so nauseous and I have never felt this way about any other herb before! I can't stand it and it makes me so sick!
I am glad that I am not the only one who feels this way!
