Don't Forget The Eucalyptus!
With the advent of spring, increased temperatures and longer days there are definitely many things to celebrate.
We can now meet-up with friends or family and play tennis.
Five-a-side football is now an option available to us, as is swimming and golf.
For those wanting a more leisurely pace and a chance to catch-up, talk, share and laugh, this now includes picnics in the park or the wonderful opportunity to host up to six people for a garden party.
With demands for BBQ’s, firepits and patio heating at an all time high, add in extra cushions, a pot plant or two and even an outdoor rug into your next shopping basket. This is a quick and easy to spruce up the outdoor entertaining area.
As we embrace the spring season and take the first steps out of lockdown and start socialising, the one thing we don’t want to deal with is the dreaded seasonal hay-fever brought on by freshly flowering grass, plants and trees.
If however, pollen related sneezing and stuffiness is playing chaos at the picnic with your sinuses, try natural eucalyptus and tea tree as go-to botanical oils to keep blocked noses and sneezing at bay.
