My secret to seasonal allergy relief

Holistic health makes the most sense to me but I've never been into essential oils. They sound too hokey-pokey and too good to be true. But I wouldn't be writing this blog post if I hadn't had a change of heart.

My older sister, also into holistic health but more so than I, began using essential oils for seasonal allergy relief a while back so when I texted her for natural remedies to sooth my itching head a month ago and her response was an essential oil concoction, I was hesitant but also desperate. After a series of quizzical texts, I relented and drove down to PCC to pick up the oils. I downed the drops of oil in some water and to my great surprise and delight, a couple minutes later, I felt immediate relief. Two days ago, my husband, who is much more skeptical than I, was about to get some clariton when I insisted that he try this essential oil blend. His quick relief from heavy allergy symptoms sealed the deal for me and is the reason why I decided to share. Summer is after all a season of allergies.

Essential oils can be pricey but they last a long time because you only use a drop or two at a time.

Here's the recipe for seasonal allergy relief:
1 drop Peppermint
1 drop Lavender
1 drop Lemon
Mix with a shot glass size of water and swallow.

I often take this first thing in the morning during heavy allergy time and if I'm feeling really bad I double the dose (2:2:2).

Disclaimer: I am not a doctor. This natural remedy has worked for me and my family. I don't give this to my kids.
