    Thank you, Grimm! My daughter had a diffuser and ran it at her house, but when I was there watching her dog, she couldn't run it. Scents give me headaches, migraines. I am going to ask her if she knows about scents for ADD. She may.
    Thank you! I will check both of these out!

    Thank you! The removable bean bags is a great idea.

    How do you wash a blanket that is weighted with rice or beans?

    I wondered that as well. The millet ones say washing machine. The weight must be the same.

    I have a hard time with the idea. I think I'd be way too warm. I typically sleep with shorts or pajama pants, and I get hot easily. Even if the room temp is mid to lower 60s, a heavy comforter is plenty. There's no denying that a heavy comforter is relaxing though...

    In wallace world recently, I saw they are carrying the weighted stuff so you can make your own blanket.
