Although fragrances can be a Migraine trigger for some Migraineurs, lavender aromatherapy is often recommended for Migraine. Lavender is soothing and relaxing, and for some Migraineurs, that's a big help while we wait for our medications to work and the Migraine to pass.
Lavender has been cherished for centuries for its potent essential oil, which has soothing properties to ease tension, insomnia, stress, and headaches. Lavender oil is also known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties as well as its ability to balance dry or oily skin, making it excellent for all skin types.
This Planting Seeds gift set contains three items:
- a four-ounce lavender aromatherapy candle,
- a four-ounce oatmeal lavender soap, and
- a packet of lavender seeds (pot not included).
I tried both the soap and candle during a Migraine attack. The light scent was enough to enjoy, but not too heavy. It was apparent to me that both products are made with quality, natural aromatherapy ingredients. For some Migraineurs, products such as these, made with quality natural ingredients instead of synthetic ingredients, can be very helpful without the scent being a problem. The relaxation properties of the lavender were quite welcome as I waited for my medications to work.
This is definitely a set that I would buy for myself or as a gift for someone else.
A Special Note:

“I am personally proud to partner with National Headache Foundation, as they have helped so many migraine sufferers, including myself, identify tools they can use to cope and find relief. Both NHF and LATHER share a mission to help others lead a more radiant life.”
