Allergy Relief with Essential Oils

EO Alergy Relief

It is that time of year… Grass is growing, trees are budding, and flowers are blooming. It seems like such a peaceful scene and a reminder of new life. Until you add in dust is blowing, pollen is spreading, and grass is being cut and swirling around you.
