I bought a box of the menthol-scented tissues from the store last week and my son loves them.  I wasn't sure if he would like them or not.  I mainly got them to help open up his sinuses.  He's been having quite a struggle with his sinuses even though he is on nasacort and claritin.  (I'm now beginning to think that maybe it is a stim, rather than a medical condition...but I'm still trying to deal with it from the medical side).  He stiffs with almost every breathe he takes, yet isn't usually productive when blowing his nose.


Anyway, I was readying about sensory enrichment and the article was talking about engaging two different senses at once, and I thought of the tissues I just bought.  Scented and soft.


I just love it when I happen upon something that is beneficial.  Now, I haven't really noticed any changes, but they are different and he likes them.  That's a good thing.   I just thought I'd share, incase anyone else might benefit from this info.
