I have discovered two non-food ways to comfort myself. I discovered them last winter, when I had pneumonia.
First, is a very, very hot bubblebath. I use EO's French Lavendar with Aloe. It's a little spendy...$10.00 for a 12 oz bottle. I don't spend much money on myself, so I don't mind buying this. Plus, it is very helpful for arthritis pain.
Second, is Twining's Earl Grey tea. I don't take anything in my tea, so I count it as non-food. I love Earl Grey tea. Some brands are better than others. So far, Twining's is the one I like best.
What are your non-food comforts?
