A scent dedicated for the month of may - celiac disease awareness month.
This scent is to represent one big craving Mrs. Mermaid (the owner of Scales of a Mermaid) always has ever since her diagnosis... Confetti Cake!
Definition of Celiac Disease:
"Celiac disease, sometimes called celiac sprue or gluten-sensitive enteropathy, is an immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.
If you have celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in your small intestine. Over time, this reaction damages your small intestine's lining and prevents it from absorbing some nutrients (malabsorption). The intestinal damage often causes diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, bloating and anemia, and can lead to serious complications." At this time there is no cure for celiac disease, only treatment to it is to live a gluten free diet, free of cross contamination as well.
The owner of Scales of a Mermaid was diagnosed with celiac disease back in September 2019.
