Natural Allergy Remedies: Natural Remedies for Hay Fever

This fall is turning out to be horrible for my allergies! I’ve suffered from headaches, a stuffy nose, itchy eyes, and a scratchy throat.  We live in one of the worst places to live if you have allergies.  I am so ready to move! Unfortunately, it seems like everyone I talk to is suffering (or knows someone who is) from bad allergies this year. Rather than toss back Claritin, I’ve tried to find some natural allergy remedies.  What’s nice about natural allergy remedies is that instead of masking the symptoms, you are actually treating the causes of the allergies.

The Best All Natural Body Care Products

I know many people are too busy or just don’t want to make their own beauty products, and that’s fine. I can totally understand that.  Rachel emailed me last week asking what all natural body care products I prefer.  I thought I would share my recommendations with everyone. Shampoo Aubrey Organics Egyptian Henna Shampoo Aubrey Organics is the most natural line of body care products I have found. They use all natural ingredients, and they are all things I can recognize and pronounce. The shampoo works fabulously and smells yummy! Conditioner Aubrey Organics Green Tea Cream Rinse The cream rinse leaves your hair feeling smooth and conditioned, yet weightless. It doesn’t coat your hair with silicones like other conditioners.  It’s paraben free as well. Body Wash or Soap We use Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Castile Soap for body wash in the shower. We prefer plain bar soap to body wash. Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap is very versatile and can be used to do laundry and clean as well! Body Wash Giovanni Cleanse Body Wash is very natural, foams up well, and […]
