For the past 4 years or so I have ended up in my doctor's office with a sinus infection due to allergies this time of year. I don't know what it is but there is something that really bothers my allergies every Fall. I know I am not the only one as I have talked to others having the same issues.
Well, it started up a few weeks ago and I guess I am a slow learner because instead of immediately using essential oils as my first line of defense I did what I have done in the past. I started using the sudafed and the mucinex.
I get a lot of post nasal drip with the allergies and at night it causes me to cough - a lot. Keeping me and Jim awake. After 4 consecutive nights of coughing for an hour or so in the middle of the night it dawned on me - why aren't I using my essential oils? So I put my "allergy potion" together in a gel cap.
It is two drops each of lavender, lemon, peppermint and oregano. I started taking it in the morning and then before bed. I have not woken up coughing once since I started taking it!
Next time guess what I'll be using as my first line of defense - essential oils!!
