Like most people, I struggle with allergies that lead to other issues which as teary, red eyes, congestion, decongestion, and a general feeling of annoyance. It doesn’t help, that besides seasonal allergies, I live with a little furball who spreads her hair around the apartment at will all day long. When given a sample of the 21 Drops Decongest ($29), I was impressed with the sleek, pocket-size design, and hopeful that there might be a more natural solution that is also effective, so that I don’t have to pop Zyrtec of Claritin on a daily basis. With therapeutic grade essential oils and 100 percent natural compounds, the line has been specially formulate, tested and calibrated to cater to the 21 of the things that plague us most.
With this particular blend, it is composed of avintsara leaf oil, myrrh resin oil, eucalyptus leaf oil and black pepper dried fruit oil to get rid of congestion and help reduce fever (yes, you can also use this blend for a bad cold). It’s applied to the front and back of your neck to enforce blood flow and aid with absorption into your Lymphatic system. Best part? It’s not oily, nor does it have an overly powerful aroma, so you can go about your daily business without smelling like Icy Hot or Tiger Balm.
