The smell of the wood? wow. You might try a Latex Polyurethane Sanding Sealer followed by a light sanding and Latex Polyurethane. Since it is water based, it will have less of that solvent smell you commonly get with finishes. I can't guarantee it will be odorless, but I think it's your best bet.

My wife is also plagued with allergies. As Xsleeper said latex polyurathane has less of an odor than any oil base does. It does have some odor but it won't linger as long as oil base poly. If possible use plenty of ventilation and it might not hurt for those most bothered by smells go out for the day.
