It will soon be time for the weather to be changing again 🙁 Usually with changes of the seasons, comes symptoms of seasonal discomfort. If you suffer from seasonal discomfort, you are one of many.
Runny nose, sinus congestion, watery eyes, sneezing, trouble breathing through your nose, sore throat and cough due to drainage are many of the symptoms people experience during the change of the seasons.
I have found a trio of essential oils that, when taken together once or twice per day, combat or completely wipe out these symptoms naturally and safe.*
No side effects, dependency or chemicals.
Drop 2 drops of each Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint into an 8oz glass of water (not plastic) and drink down, or you may also put the drops in a vegetable capsule and swallow. Only certified pure essential oils should be used internally!
Besides taking as a trio for seasonal discomfort, these three essential oils also alleviate a variety of other issues and improve your overall quality of life.

Add to water and drink throughout the day to help with natural and safe detox.
Add 10-15 drops to an 8oz glass spray bottle filled with water to use for a natural cleaning agent in the kitchen or bathrooms.

These are just a few of the many ways you can use these three essential oils. The benefits and uses are endless!
Here are a few recipes:
Carpet Stain Remover:
4 cups warm water
1/2 teaspoon Castile soap or dish soap
10 drops Lemon essential oil
Mix 2 cups warm water, soap, and essential oil. Soak a rag in the mixture, wring out, and gently blot the stain. Use a clean rag soaked in the remaining 2 cups warm water to remove the residue. Alternate the soap solution with the fresh water until the stain is gone. Remember to blot, not rub, to remove a carpet stain as rubbing will ruin the carpet fibers.
Hardwood Floor Cleaner:
1 gallon warm water
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
3 drops of Lemon essential oil
Mix water, vinegar, and oil in a large bucket or container. Mop with a dry mop or by hand with microfiber cloths. Change solution as needed.
Fruit and Veggie Wash:
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
5 drops Lemon essential oil
1 cup Epsom salts
1/2 cup baking soda
10 drops Lavender
Drop oil into dry mixture of salt and baking soda, stir. Sprinkle in your bathwater and soak until desired:)
1 package gum paste (found with cake decorating supplies)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6 drops Peppermint essential oil (add more for stronger flavor)
food coloring (optional)
Pull off an egg-sized section of gum paste and knead it until soft. Add essential oil and a tiny bit of food coloring. Knead again, and roll out with a rolling pin. Using the end of the straw, punch out shapes and roll in powdered sugar. This reduces sticking. Dry for 48 hours. Place mints in a decorative tin with lid. Enjoy!
Oh, I almost forgot! You can add these oils in when you are cooking. Add to frosting, brownies, cake mix or bars. Add to your favorite hot tea or coffee. But remember, one drop goes a long ways!
