The sun is out, flowers are blooming, life is coming back in full force. For some though this means allergy and bug bite season is starting. Spring is meant to be spent outside enjoying the colors and natures re-birth.
To help you enjoy spring and summer I have made a list of some of my personal Spring Essentials. I hope this will come in handy.
My favorite oil/blend to help calm allergies is RC:
This blend is composed of 3 types of eucalyptus, lavender, marjoram, peppermint and is perfect to soothe the respiratory system and provide sinus relief. I recommend putting one drop in the palm of your hand and cupping your nose and mouth and inhaling deeply a few times a day or when needed. You will feel a difference right away.
Prevention: For those evening bbq parties I would recommend putting a few drops of any of the following on your wrists, ankles, behind your knees, elbows and neck:
Lemongrass: On top of aiding the circulatory system and being a strong antioxidant, Lemongrass is also a great mosquito and bug repellent.
Lemon and Peppermint would also be a great combination. A word to the wise, Peppermint is very strong so less is more. Avoid using Lemongrass or Lemon if you are going in the sun as these can stain your skin.
Bug bite relief:
For those itchy bug bites I recommend using Lavender alone or Lavender and Peppermint together. Another great solution for bug bites is Purification.
On a side note, Lavender essential oil is a powerful antibacterial and can be applied directly to cuts and scrapes to help disinfect and heal the cut.
I also recommend adding NingXia Red to your daily regimen, it now comes in individual packs that are easy to take with you and have on the go whenever you need it. NingXia red is a natural infusion of Whole Ningxia wolfberry puree, Blueberry juice, Pomegranate juice, Apricot juice, Raspberry juice, Organic blue agave nectar, Grape seed, skin, and stem, Lemon rind, Orange rind. Needless to say it is one of the highest antioxidant and natural energy boosting drinks on the market today. It’s pure health and life in a bottle!
