Air Detox with Beeswax Candles

Want to learn something super interesting today?  Yes?

Allergy Season Must-Haves

It's that time of the year again... ALLERGY SEASON.  This year my allergies have hit me like a ton of bricks.  We've had a very random winter with very cold days mixed with record breaking highs and so the trees are budding earlier then usual which according to the weather man means allergy season is prolonged this spring.  Great.  In the past I've blogged about essential oils and allergy relief but for me personally, essential oils weren't enough.  I refuse to take allergy medicine despite … [Read more...]

Allergy Relief-Part 2

Well, here we are talking about allergies again!  When I left you with my Part 1, I had decided to take 9 drops of L.L.P. essential oil blend (lavender, lemon and peppermint) in a gel cap 3 times a day.  I also committed to rubbing the blend on the bottoms of my feet at least 2 times a day. Some of you might be wondering why I don't just take an allergy pill.  One big reason that keeps me from taking allergy medication is that most of them work by drying your system out.  I cringe when I … [Read more...]

Allergy Relief PLEASE!!! Part 1

Hi!  Ok, let me paint you a picture.  I'm sitting here eyeball deep in brain fog.  I've been struggling with allergies for over 2 weeks now.   I literally go catatonic every few minutes, then snap out of it and wonder what I was doing before the latest episode.  The trees are all budding, have I mentioned we live in a forest?  Pear trees are fully bloomed and it hasn't properly rained in over 2 weeks. I'm driving myself crazy trying to write a decent post!  Hence, my 1 no-brainer post from last … [Read more...]

Skin Soothing and Nourishing Mask

I formulated this mask because I suffer majorly from seasonal allergies.  I get super dry skin and big, itchy bumps when my allergies are triggered.  The internet is full of DIY masks using everything in your kitchen from egg whites to oatmeal, and I love whipping up real food masks but it's a lot of work for a one time use.  The mask we'll make today will have at least a 3 mos. shelf life and will be multi purpose-you'll be getting your time's worth and then some!  I needed something that I … [Read more...]

DIY Allergy Relief Balm

Fall is around the corner and with the falling leaves and cooler air, allergies seem to come on with a vengeance.  Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint are powerful essential oils that combine to make a healthy, easy remedy for sniffles and sneezes!  Together they create a strong antihistamine and reduce inflammation.  So I thought why not make a salve of it?  At my home allergies run rampant.  Before I met my husband I had 4 cats and I would have continued to add to my menagerie if my fiance at the … [Read more...]
