After Friday and Saturday's "being outside picking grapes & Jam Making Day," I am feeling the effects of being outside with high pollen counts.  The dreaded "A" word, Allergies, is definitely in the air....literally.  I have had a bit of stuffiness and eye irritation, but poor hubby has it the worst.  He has ragweed allergies and the predominant pollen in this area is ragweed, chenopods and grass. The pollen counts are 10.2 today, which is High.  That is why I am making both of us some essential oil inhalers to give our bodies some much-needed support through this allergy season.  

The inhaler blend that I am making combines Eucalyptus, Frankincense, and Roman chamomile.  This is a great blend to calm those allergies! 

This inhaler blend recipe came from the "Aromatherapy for Natural Living Course" that I completed online through Aromahead Institute and I have referenced the course information many times since completing it.  If you haven't had a chance to check out the Aromahead Institute, you should!  There is also a free intro essential oil course that you can take to start learning more about essential oils!
