How To Properly Dilute Your Essential Oils

Beating Allergies With A Simple Solution

Allergies are absolutely no fun! They show up out of the blue and hit you where it hurts – your eyes, your nose, your ears, your head. They are merciless, and can leave you pretty much function-less – totally wiped out! I’ve been hit hard this summer, and being pregnant doesn’t help at all.
