I started using doterra oils about two years ago when my mom ordered the Family Physician Kit. This kit has Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Melaleuca, Oregano, Frankincense, Deep Blue®, Breathe, DigestZen®, and On Guard.

I have chronic sinus headaches and my seasonal allergies…I am really allergic to mountain cedar, ragweed, and oak.

For the first month, I was completely skeptical! Would not touch any of the oils!

One day, I had massive sinus pressure, and I had already taken sudafed. The medicine had not made much of a difference in the way I was feeling so I decided to try the peppermint oil. Okay! Wow! I nearly got instant relief!

Peppermint, Lemon, and Lavender oil is the typical allergy blend. How can you use these oils for your allergies?

Here are the ways I use these oils:
1. In an oil diffuser.
2. Put individual oils in a roller bottle or mix all three together in one roller bottle (Whatever works best for you.). Then I use these oils on my temples and sometimes over the bridge of my nose.
3. Doterra has an oil capsule (called TriEase) of peppermint, lemon, and lavendar. I take this daily with my normal allergy pill.

Mentioned above are just a few of the ways that you can use these essential oils to help your allergies.

All the Colors of the Wildflowers – Part Two

IMG_1270

Yesterday, it was the perfect day to go on this day trip to Fredericksburg!

See part one of All the Colors of the Wildflowers to see pictures of all the beautiful flowers at Wildseed Farms. -> Click Here!

There is so much to do at Wildseed Farms. My family and I spent nearly two hours or more there walking around.

Not only can you walk the fenced areas outside the farm land and fields to see all the beautiful flowers, Wildseed Farms has an enormous selection of plants available to buy. My favorite was looking at all the different succulents.

In their gift shop, you can buy different poppy seeds. I believe they had two or three types of poppy seeds for planting. There was a whole section of the gift stop dedicated to different types of flower seeds. That was fun to walk through!

Also, they have a food specialty shop. Too similar to the General Store in Gruene, Texas (to me). I did not spend a lot of time in there. You can sample some of their jams and snacks they sell. Their snack bar is also in that shop. I believe they had different ice cream, ice cream specialty items, and fudge to buy along with drinks.

If you wanted to make a whole day of it, such as a Saturday… I believe that on occasion they have live music.

Hope y’all have a wonderful weekend! – Bethany
