Keith recently had a little flare up because during a field trip to the apple orchard, he found the hay pile and had loads of fun jumping into it with his friends and piling it on each other over and over again! Keith and hay are not friends and he ended up with red, watery, itchy eyes and a runny nose. As soon as we hopped in the car for the 30 min drive home, I dabbed some Lavender on the bridge of his nose and right under his nose. He not only was perfectly fine once we got home, his reaction cleared BEFORE we were even home! Oils amaze me!! God certainly knew what He was doing when He created all of these plants for more than just the beauty they provide!
On occasion when one of my boys experiences an allergy bout, we have also used an allergy bomb capsule, made up of Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint. It's an easy recipe and works wonders. These three oils can also be added in equal quantities to a sample bottle and inhaled or applied topically to the back of the neck if that is preferable.
For those who suffer from seasonal or year-round allergies, this oily remedy can provide an effective alternative to using consistent OTC or prescription meds! Say goodbye to the misery of allergies!!
