Spring is on its way!
I totally love this time of year for two reasons:
1 – I love LOVE when the weather starts to warm up. This is my first Spring living in New England – well, actually it’s my first Spring living anywhere other than the deserts of Utah – and I’m so excited for the explosion of green that I can hardly stand it!
2 – I get to clean and organize my house again. Oh, how I love to organize! I love to look around at my house and see that everything has its place (whether it’s actually in that place or not) and know that there is order in the chaos. Since I just moved a little over a week ago it made the spring cleaning process that much easier. I had a blank slate to work with and I love it. (I finally got to put a bunch of my pins on Pinterest to good use – more on that coming in the next few weeks!)
But these two reasons also contribute to the one major reason I curse this time of year at least once a day – Seasonal Allergies. Budding plants and disrupted dust are the bane of my existence. I do not remember a day in my entire life that I haven’t had allergies or taken some sort of medicine for them. Everyone in my family growing up had allergies too so it wasn’t too big a deal until I got married. My husband, Brad, has never experienced allergies himself or had to live with anyone that had them. He just doesn’t get it!
I have tried everything and very few medications work to my satisfaction, so when I was contacted about reviewing the homeopathic Similasan Nasal Allergy Relief I was excited to put it to the test. I’ve recently decided to try using natural remedies as much as possible for myself and my family to keep rebound effects and reliance to a minimum. I’d rather stimulate my body’s natural abilities to relieve symptoms – especially those associated with my allergies and chronic rhinitis. So the fact that Similasan’s nasal mist is all natural and chemical and preservative free (in fact it’s one of the only available nasal decongestant sprays that is preservative free) really appealed to me.
Want to know another bonus? You can get it at Walgreens or through any major online retailer too. No more lugging that little one to the doctor to get my prescription refilled. I was sent some Similisan Nasal Allergy Relief to review and I gave it a try for a few days and you know what? I loved it! It worked just as well as any of the prescription nasal sprays I have used, and I felt so much better about using it.
Now I can get back to my plant-loving, cleaning & organizing Spring ways in peace.
