Daily Feng Shui News for Oct. 22nd – ‘Seasonal Allergies’

Leaves of many blazing colors now cloak the trees as autumn glows in full glory. But even with all this natural beauty, the shifting seasons can often have you feeling like a slave to seasonal allergies. If you find that you’re shedding as many tears as there are leaves on the ground, then try a simple aromatherapy remedy. Add ten drops of pure eucalyptus oil to six drops each of true lavender oil and chamomile and drop this mix into a bowl of steaming spring or distilled water. When diffused into your immediate environment, this synergistic blend should stop the wheezing and sneezing and even help dry those eyes.
