Spring has finally sprung! With it comes the beautiful flora and fauna of warmer weather accompanied by the itchy eyes, runny noses and raised skin of seasonal allergies. While the market is flooded with antihistamines produced in a lab, the best source of relief from these irritating symptoms can be found in natural essential oils. In fact, there are three essential oils that are known to be the powerhouse of allergy relief: lavender, peppermint and lemon.
You can use these individually or combine them for an effective treatment that is also 100% au naturel.
