Essential Oil Blend for Allergies!

I don't know about you guys but I am dying here with the allergies!! I think it is probably from this intense weather change---- it's been over 100 degrees for the past 2 days!

With that being said, I have been waking up the past few mornings with a runny/stuffy nose and a sore throat. Oh and to top it off, I can't stop sneezing!

I don't remember the last time I took over-the-counter medicine, so I try and go with natural remedies to help myself feel better.

One thing that I always turn to are my essential oils! You can use them topically, internally, or in a diffuser like I am going to show you today :)

If you are suffering from seasonal allergies, fill up your diffuser with warm water and add:

- 5 drops Peppermint oil
- 5 drops Rosemary oil
-5 drops Tea Tree oil

*You can also use Eucalyptus or Lemon oil if you don't have Peppermint or Rosemary*

This blend really helps me to clear my head as I lay in bed and sip my Peppermint green tea!

I hope you all feel better!
