I spent the past weekend with quite the case of the sniffles. What perhaps made it even worse is that I'm not entirely sure it was a cold, but my first run in with seasonal allergies. I have laughed hard and often at friends during massive sneeze attacks (you know who you are). I come away from the weekend with understanding and empathy, for I now have felt your misery as well.
My itchy nose reminded me of a new tip I heard from a friend up north. Geranium oil, when rubbed on the arch of the foot, can help soothe allergies. What the what? Feels a bit witchy but, hey! Why not? Off to make a quick purchase then a foot rub. No more sneezing, wahoo! Readers, have any of you heard of this trick?
