Spring is just around the corner and with it brings severe Allergy and Sinus problems for many of us. I used to suffer terribly when I was a kid, but after getting older and moving out of my childhood home my allergies seems to go away. After thinking back on it I think my troubles were because my Dad was a smoker on and off over the years. I truly believe what we eat plays a big factor in our congestion level and causes sinus problems for some that could easily be made better with diet change too.
No matter why you have allergies or sinus trouble I believe treating it natural is the way to go. All of my adult life I’ve used only herbs and oils for myself and my family, my oldest son who’s 22 has never had a medication his entire life. I did take him for normal checkups but always treated him at home with homeopathic ways.
I created this Allergy and Sinus Capsule Recipe for my friend Emily, the poor girl was having horrible allergy problems and was just miserable trying to get through a work day. I called her asked if she’d like me to make her an inhaler and some allergy capsules and she said, YES. So on her way home from work she stopped by to get them, took a capsule immediately and also used the inhaler. Within a few minutes she said she could already feel relief and I could tell by her eyes they didn’t look as tearful any more. I sent her home with capsules for another 3 days and she never even had to use them all, her symptoms were gone within two days.
Here’s a little tip: If I make up more than a days worth of capsules at a time I keep them in a mason jar in the freezer and use them as needed. I still only like to keep a few on hand at a time. I want the oils to be fresh when I need them.
