I don't know about you, but my allergies have been kicking my buttocks for a few weeks now. Seems like spring and early fall are the worst. I tend to have the most trouble with my nose and sinuses. Congestion, and pressure. NO THANK YOU!
Every four hours, I take an over the counter anti-inflammatory for nasal swelling. At night, I take a generic allergy medicine that is "suppose" to last 24 hours. Yeah...okay. ::::insert eye roll here::::
So, I started looking around for what else I could try. I am a huge follower of Camp Wander and One Good Thing By Jillee; both blogs have an abundance of information related to essential oils, crafts, DIY and other goodies. I love these blogs! They have changed my life for the better, both health wise and financially.
Both Jill (One Good Thing By Jillee) and Rebecca (Camp Wander) STRONGLY recommend Spark Naturals L.L.P. Allergy Blend. This blend is an equal combination of Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint essential oils. It can be applied topically to your feet or taken internally (in a shot glass of water twice a day or in a veggie capsule twice a day). Pretty cool, huh!? This combination is an awesome anti-histamine that can help all allergy suffers! So, (everyone scream) ALLERGY SUFFERERS UNITE! Say "goodbye" to the yucky chemically designed pills we are all filling our bodies with and "hello" to more effective, all natural alternatives!

Here's what to do:
Antihistamine Protocol in a Capsule:
Purchase Spark Naturals Veggie Capsules. They are inexpensive and a great way to take the L.L.P. internally. Simply fill a capsule with 9 drops of Spark Naturals L.L.P. Allergy Blend, and then close it up. Take 1 capsule, two times per day. THAT'S IT! EASY!
Antihistamine Protocol in Water Shots:
This is my choice way of taking my Spark Naturals L.L.P. Allergy Blend. I notice relief from my allergies right away and it seems to last longer than taking the blend via capsule. So, what you do is fill a GLASS (not plastic) shot glass with cold tap water. Add 3 drops of Spark Naturals L.L.P. Allergy Blend to the water. Drink it in one gulp. Swoosh your mouth out with water if you like. That's it! Do this two-three times a day.
That's it my dears! When I started taking my Spark Naturals L.L.P. Allergy Blend, I overlapped with my over the counter drugs. I would take my standard dose of my over the counter allergy meds, as well as my shot glass of water and L.L.P Allergy Blend. I did this for about a week before stopping the over the counter meds all together. I haven't touched an over the counter allergy med in over a year....I couldn't be happier! Remember, consistancy is KEY when it comes to essential oils.
