Smells Amazing - Lisa Parr

I am a stay-at-home mom of three who was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease. I was misdiagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia before my doctors discovered what was really wrong with me. I am unable to work outside of my home so I started up SmellsAmazing.com to see what evolves!

With the help and loving support of my family, I am committed to offering you only the finest quality, most unique and best smelling goodies, lotions and potions around.

Come stop by my online store this holiday season for unique candles, diffusers, sprays and other things girls love!

Thanks for taking part in the featured artists giveaways Lisa! To me candles and the Holidays go hand in hand.

Reaching out to the Lyme community has been one of the most healing things of my Lyme journey. I have made amazing friends both on and off line. I feel loved, supported, and accepted by my Lyme friends. they are always there for me in a way that no one else can be.

Your candles look great! It's wonderful that you are able to run a business while battling lyme disease.

I'm not a lyme patient myself, but I have a family member who is one. I see how amazing the online community has been in her life. I think it's often what keeps her going.

Reaching out to the Lyme community has helped my wife tremendously. The online community is helping her get through this rough patch in her life.

Having a support network of literally hundreds of people online who are all in the same boat has helped me tremendously. These are the only people that truly understand what it feels like to live in this body. They have helped inspire me and keep me going. The friends I have made are now so integral in my life. :)

I don't have Lyme so I am not a part of the online Lyme community. My sister is though. I think without all the support she gets there she would be really depressed.

I love candles especially ones that smell amazing!

My 23 year old son has Lyme disease. The last year and a half has been extremely hard for us all,constant sickness,pain and countless hours in hospitals.
Its a wonderful feeling to know that there are caring people out there who share in our pain and physical hardships. Thank you so much for all you do!
God Bless,

I don't know what I would have done without the Lyme communtiy. I get the best support, advice, and friendship from other fellow Lymies.

It would be awesome to get some homemade candles. I love your logo.

I have shared the link to your giveaway on twitter.

I was also first diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia before being diagnosed with Lyme. I would never had made it through this long journey without the support, advice, understanding, and friendship from other Lymies. They are they only ones out there that TRULY know what I'm going through. I feel like I've often found "home" when I connect with another Lymie who speaks my language.

My odyssey included almost 10 years of DMPS metals detox followed by 3 years of (ongoing) treatment for Lyme. I've had to rely heavily on my friends and family but I've recently discovered that my most valuable support and encouragement comes from the 'sisterhood' of other Lymies. I'm grateful for their deep friendship and understanding.
