I want to start by saying: I am not a partner with Bath and Body Works. I do NOT receive any compensation for writing about their products. The only discounts I get from Bath and Body Works are the same coupons that all customers get from their mailing list. I only talk about this product because it works for me.
Now that we got that out of the way, I've waited all year for Peppermint products to be available! Peppermint has so many medicinal uses as tea and as aroma therapy. I prefer aromas because, as long as they aren't migraine inducing, it's a passive way to get relief.
Today 3 wick candles are $10 off! If you are reading this after the date of posting, never fear! Bath and Body Works will do several more sales on candles, soaps and lotions before the end of December. I can't say that peppermint candles will las until the end of December, though. Last year, they sold out on me before the end of the year.
The two fragrances that help relieve my migraines and other pain are Twisted Peppermint and Crushed Candy Cane. The latter works a little better for me than the former. If you are used to having scent sensitivity, you know that just because something works for me doesn't mean it will work for you but it's worth a try (especially if you don't pay full price).
Everyone who knows me knows that I have Chronic Daily Migraines. I am very sensitive to lights, sounds, smells and various chemicals. I also have Mast Cell Disease so as a rule I use as few chemicals as possible; most chemicals I use are odorless. I make many cleaners and moisturizers myself. I do, however, love trusted scents. I believe in the therapeutic power of a great smell. Unfortunately, my reaction to even my safe scents is sometimes unpredictable, My love for scents can be like the One Republic song, Counting Stars. Having 3 people with chronic migraines and 4 people with Mast Cell in our house, I know there is no one size fits all solution avoiding migraines, not having a Mast Cell reaction or soothing oneself. Here are some ways I use essential oils.
There are some awesome t-shirts, coffee mugs, bags stickers and more available in my store. View what's currently available here.
