Enjoying My Favorite Seasonal Scents While Staying Migraine-Free

I have been getting migraines since age 10 and throughout the years I have figured out most of my triggers and how to avoid them if possible. If you suffer from migraines, you know how awful it is to go through one and will do anything to avoid it. I have tried to avoid being on medication for migraines, but I have come to terms with the fact that I have to be on a medication to be able to function on a daily basis as migraines interfere with that. 

I have always been obsessed with candles especially when it’s time to burn fall and Christmas scents! Burning a candle in my home gives me all of the cozy vibes which I love during the cooler months of the year. Unfortunately, some candles trigger migraines for me. As much as I love candles from Bath and Body Works, I have to be careful with with candles I purchase from them. Their candles are a soy blend wax and I have noticed that I am usually okay with the candles made with essential oils that are dye-free vs. the candles that are made with fragrance oils and dye. I have noticed that soy candles made with essential oils do not have an overbearing scent and release the scent slower than candles that are paraffin wax candles made with fragrance oils. 

When I first started to blog I came across a small candle shop located in Ohio which isn’t far from Pittsburgh. Scent From Me was so kind to send their gingerbread candle for my review and I fell in love! Their candles are all made with 100% essential oils, cruelty free, zinc and phthalate-free, no additives and they are hand-poured soy candles. This shop was so sweet to share a discount code with me to share with all of you if you want to check them out! Use discount code SAHMBLOG to save $5 off your order of $30 or more.  I am not an affiliate with them and am just sharing a shop that I support!

If you also suffer from migraines, please share your triggers with me and how you avoid them! I will be discussing migraines again in future posts. 

Thanks for stopping by! xoxo
