Your recipe is woefully-lacking in details.

Four drops of each? How much carrier oil? Where do you get the lavender? Inhaled, ingested, spread on the skin?

Allergic to what?

Just sayin’.

Allergies are made up by people so the can skip work. I go outside all the time and don’t even sneeze. If Allergies were real why haven’t I had any symptoms? Lexdysia real though.

A moose once bit my sister....

No realli! She was Karving her initials on the moose with the sharpened end of an interspace toothbrush given her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian movies: "The Hot Hands of an Oslo Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Molars of Horst Nordfink"... Mynd you, moose bites Kan be pretti nasti...

Young Living essential oils in my case, but there are other good brands.

My allergies are to primarily grass and pollen.

Brass cleaner soaked into a towel and rubbed on my neck helps.

So you can make light of things you don’t understand. Do a search of Cleveland Clinic and essential oils. You may learn something.

We are distributors for Young Living, and these are all great oils. What do you do with the drops of oil? Take them internally or use them otherwise?

We use grape seed as the carrier oil. My allergies are primarily grasses and pollen. This time of year is typically my worst time of the year. Mlizzy up thread can probably give you better information. May even be able to direct you to a distributor in your area if you are interested.

I have plenty of capsules and the machine to fill them. What we are asking is: what do you mix the Lavender oil with and how much of each?

We mix the lavender with lemon oil and peppermint oil. Four drops of each. Fill the caplet between 1/3 and 1/2 with the grape seed oil. My wife purchased a special dropper to insert into the top of the oil container. it is also the proper side to fill the caplet.

Your recipe is woefully-lacking in details.

Picky-picky. Obviously the homeopathic dude is talking gallons, probably? Liters maybe? Quintals? Stop fussing about. Just look in the back of your Dwight Moody Bible and figure it out.

Inhaled, ingested, spread on the skin?

Place mixture thickened with arrowroot on the back of a Cyprus donkey, ride bareback, bare-assed, from Lexington, Kentucky to Portland, Maine ... but by full moon only.

If symptoms persist, repeat ad libitum. If death occurs, contact your Obamacare Navigator en español.

My wife has four degenerated disks in C3-C7. Between C5/C6 and C6/C7 she is basically bone on bone. Surgery is scheduled the end of May to fuse the bottom two. She found a recipe for a salve she has been using for the past several weeks. It is the only thing she has found over the past 4 or 5 years that offers any relief from the pain.

Please let us know what the recipe is. My sister has already had surgery but is still in some pain. Maybe it would work for her.

I use the same proportions, but adjust the amounts to fill a 5mL roller jar-thingie. I put it on the bottoms of my feet. It works the same and I am not burping the oils.

I also make an allergy lotion version and another mixture for colds and flu.

I worked in a vault of an Indian casino, 4-10s work week, swing shift. Being around all that money kept you exposed to a lot of nasty germs. Women would come up to my window when I was still a cage-cashier and pull out their money... from places that were beyond disgusting. One became angry when I grabbed gloves and a pen to push it aside to count out her desired amount of chips. I bleached the counter when she huffed off. I digress...

I had a high fever. I could barely breathe or think. Not good when dealing with large amounts of money. One coworker swore by Vick’s Vapor Rub on the souls of her feet. I was disparate, so tried it. It worked. I mixed up my version and have used it since when my nose gets stuffed up, like it is now. No, not allergies right now. It is 8 baby chicks in a brooder in my craft room. Chickens are dusty, no matter what one does to cut it down.
