How do you help a child with a sensitive smell gag reflex?

My 3 year old seems to have a sensitive gag reflex to smells. Sometimes I think it's in her head. If you say it smells, then she'll say the same thing and start gagging. If I'm in the bathroom and she asks what you're doing and I tell her she'll start gagging. Even if there's nothing to smell. She also gets so upset sometimes that she vomits. But luckily, that's getting better. Anyone have any ideas?
