Chemicals vs Oils

First, I am happy to announce today that my rheumatologist says my joints all look good and he gave me permission to try to come off the rasuvo (injectable methotrexate)! I have been wanting to come off of this for a while, being on a cancer drug is scary, no matter how low a dose it is. It is only an experiment to see if I am really going back into remission, hopefully I won't have to go back on it. 

While I rid my body of one chemical, it calls for another; Florida allergy season is upon me. My biggest issue I know is the pollen and orange trees, the bloom and my eyes won't stop itching. 

For the last couple years, I have taken a perscription drug that has worked very well. With being on all the medications I have been on recently, I would like to avoid the extra doses if I can. So, I am trying my essential oils for relief. 

I have made a roller ball of lavender, peppermint and lemon to use and hopefully control my allergies. I am going to put it on my chest and around my head for the next week and see what happens. Hopefully, that will be one less medicine for me to take!
