Tis the season for family, good food, laughter.....and possibly a cold or fall allergies. My family is dealing with it at this very moment. While the symptoms have to essentially run their course as various medications are taken with a cold, there are natural alternatives for getting relief for both in the meantime. My previous recipe was a bit more complex, so here are some simpler ways to get cold/allergy relief using essential oils when the season is upon you.
Make time for you! Make time for calm! A calm, peaceful mind lends to rest for mind and body. No time? I know, I know! Me too! In a time when we just rush, rush, rush with no me, me, me it's tough to have time to even make time. But this recipe is worth making the time.
It's got all those ingredients the ooze relaxation and calm; those things that allow us to free our minds for other things. Things like reflecting on loved ones, naming a new business, or just being thankful for being alive.

Wow! What a fun twist on a holiday classic! I LOVE peppermint...the candy, the oil, the flower...all of it! Peppermint is an awesome oil known for a MULTITUDE of uses. Peppermint oil contains Menthol and is totally wonderful for use on the scalp and in skin care. In hair care, peppermint oil relieves the nagging itch of dandruff or dry scalp as well as lice. It's also an excellent nourisher of the skin---calming oily skin and revitalizing dry skin. You can use it as a "refresher" (which is the purpose for use in this recipe) for stress and anxiety. It is also believed to be a good pain reliever...Not to mention it's a neat, thoughtful gift for someone special!
