Taking the Snot Out of Allergy Season. The flowers and trees are blooming! I LOVE spring. The newness of rebirth and color flashing across the trees… warms my heart.
However, Spring Does NOT Love Me.
For as long as I can remember, I have been plagued with severe allergies. I am allergic to all things. If the Lord created it, I sneeze at it. My mom had me do allergy shots for years, in hopes that I would have some relief.
Due to Insurance Reasons
I had to stop getting the shots for a long time. Luckily, as an adult, I (along with most of my children) was able to start them back up for a while. It really didn’t help too much. I was reduced to using nasal sprays, eye drops, OTC allergy meds, prescribed allergy meds, shots, and lots of tissues.
I was Miserable with Copious Snot
Sadly, I have learned to just deal with it. Spring and fall are the worst parts of the year for my face. Ironically, those are still my 2 favorite seasons because of the sheer beauty that surrounds me. So much snot. I can’t even. Eventually, I was going to bottle and sell my snot in order to pay for my tissues.
Enter My Game Changer: Breathe, Lavender, Purify, Roman Chamomile, and Zendocrine
Now, let’s bear in mind that this works FOR ME! I have done away with all prescription meds, OTC, nasal sprays, and eye drops. It is simple: I no longer need them. I will post in a couple of days my day to day, carry with me, allergy relief. I use these oils and I diffuse them.
Once they get going and it permeates the air, my nose stops running. My mouth and eyes stop itching. I use 3 drops of each for my smaller diffusers and I use 4 drops of each in my big diffusers.
Breakdown of Costs
I do not run this every day! On the days when I realize that I’m going through a box of tissues in an hour, I run them. In the offseason, I do not use this at all. The 15 ml bottles contain 250 drops. The 5 ml bottle contains 85 drops. So, if I did this daily (3 drops of each) and used the ENTIRE bottle of Roman Chamomile, that would give me 28 days straight. I would still have 165 drops of each of the other oils left, so there’s that 🙂
Breathe: $22 is $.08 per drop, $0.24 per day
Lavender: $23 is $.08 per drop, $0.24 per day
Purify: $20 is $.07 per drop, $0.21 per day
Roman Chamomile: $45 is $.54 per drop, $1.62 per day
Zendocrine: $24 is $.10 per drop, $.30 per day
That total is $2.61 PER DAY of relief. That is for a month. It is natural and it works. Remember, IF you just did this for the length of time it takes to empty the Roman Chamomile bottle, that is 28 days.
