Northwest Florida Allergy Season


Y'all! It's allergy season around my neck of the woods. I can't tell you how many of my friends (myself included) were suffering. *long sad over-dramatic cry*

As mentioned in one of my last posts, one of my new years resolutions was to start using more essential oils in my lifestyle. I've stayed true to this resolution and have found many ways to help alleviate symptoms. What I have been doing to combat these allergies is using a combination of YL Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint EOs. Y'all, they have seriously supported me so much I can't tell you how pleased I am. Instead of reaching for a drug, I went to my oil stand and whipped these babies up:

Diffuse:
3-5 drops of Lemon
3-5 drops of Peppermint
3-5 drops of Lavender

If you're diffusing around children, I suggest using only 3 drops until you're comfortable with adding more.

Apply Topically- (Rub behind ears and on the back of the neck)
2 tbsp. of organic coconut oil
3-5 drops of each YL essential oil

I promise you that you'll start feeling better and those bothersome allergies will subside. I also promise you that you'll feel amazing knowing exactly what you're breathing in, or putting it on!
