Confession: I am the poster child for someone with bad allergies.  Sinus pressure and headaches? Guilty as charged too. It’s not pretty – trust me. Now when either of these strike – and sometimes they strike together – relief can’t…..come……fast enough. I’ll admit that I’ve tried many over the counter relief options – some with better results than others.  But, I’ve also found great comfort with these natural DIY sinus and allergy relief recipes which we’ve outlined in this episode of Earth911TV.  You too can experience relief – naturally. Now that’s heady stuff!
