It's Fall!!!!! I'm so excited if you can't tell! It's my favorite season. How did I celebrate the week leading up to the first day of Fall? I went to the beach. Haha! I had the incredible privilege of going to Destin, FL with my brother, sis-in-law and my niece and nephew. It was certainly a gift from heaven to be able to go to the beach! It's a place that I can rejuvenate and refresh (and get free exfoliation for my feet when walking on sand). I enjoyed making memories with my family. Ahhh...I just loved everything about it...well, except for the leaving part.

Returning to Tennessee on Saturday to 8-10 degrees lower was not a bad way to return. I love the cooler temperatures. But feeling every bit of the change in season in my face (seasonal allergies) was not so welcomed on Monday. Yep, this is usually when I get a sinus infection....BUT...not this year! As soon as I felt symptoms come up on Monday I went straight to my medicine cabinet and pulled out my doTERRA Essential Oils. I made my little shooter and bam! I felt well.

All it takes is a simple blend of 3 doTERRA oils for a natural, effective, no side effects and cost saving remedy: Lavender, Peppermint, Lemon. These three create a natural anti-histamine and lessen the inflammation that causes the discomfort. There are a few ways to make this Allergy Defeating Concoction aka the Allergy Bomb. If you feel an infection coming on, you can add Melaleuca to the mix.

1.) Add 2-3 drops of each to shot glass (1/4 cup) of juice or water, swish 10-20 seconds in the mouth and swallow.* (For infections: add 2 drops of Melaleuca) Repeat up to 3 times a day as needed.

2.) Add 3 drops of each into an empty Veggie Capsule and take with water or juice.* (For infections: add 2 drops of Melaleuca) Repeat up to 3 times a day as needed.

3.) Add 1 drop each to a spoonful of local honey for children. For adults you can do 2-3 drops each.* Prevention is always the best option when possible.

*Do not ingest oils that are not CPTG doTERRA Oils! The advice shared in this site has not been evaluated by the FDA.

 You can get an Intro Kit with these three oils here. And if the Allergy Bomb is not enough reason to get these oils...read through the 101 uses of these oils here.

So, I am back to fully welcoming Fall. Even though it's 80' today in Nashville, those lows in the 50's are making me smile. I'm so thankful that God made Fall and safe ways for me to enjoy it all the more!
