Summer is here and that means it’s the time of year when everything is in bloom. While we love spending our summers outside gardening, camping, or simply enjoying a warm evening in our backyards, seasonal allergies can certainly put a damper on things. Let’s make a cool oil blend for relief: 30 drops lemon essential oil, 25 drops lavender essential oil, 10 drops peppermint essential oil, sunflower oil and a 10ml roll-on bottle. Lavender helps eliminate nervous tension, relieves pain and respiratory problems. Lemon is a natural anti-biotic, antiviral, antiseptic, and disinfectant. Peppermint contains helps clear the respiratory tract and has a cooling effect on the body. Combine essential oils in a small roller bottle then fill to the top with sunflower oil. Whenever you feel the allergy itch coming on, apply this oil blend to the bottoms of your feet and the base of your skull/neck. You can also rub it onto any irritated skin areas like around your eyes and nose.
