4 Essential Oils For Allergy Season

Allergy season is in full effect. Last spring I didnt have bad allergies, but this year so far has been the worst in years. Usually I hate taking any antihistamines because I think theres something so weird and freaky about pills, but I buckled down and had to buy a box of Claritin yesterday. Another natural allergy-reliever that I swear by are essential oils. Less is more when it comes to essential oil use, so dont douse yourself in it.
