Allergies again... But we love the outdoors- we need the outdoors! Mild, moderate or severe, whichever way allergies manifest, they boil down to being one thing- annoying. This is the time at RICA when we seek out our Original Clementine Collection for its fullest comfort and healing potential.
Our ancestors began using the phenomenon of steam as a remedy for many ailments but it was most prominently used to treat congestion. The pneuma (a root relative of the word "pneumonia") is the breath, spirit, or essence, which physically appears to us as steam. We soak in our clementine tub salt, especially during allergy season, to inhale the anti-inflammatory and decongestive properties of citrus steam- to quite literally decompress- as the salt's minerals replenish both skin and soul. Dry, itchy skin can be exfoliated and gently nourished with zesty Clementine Sugar Polish and the ritual is completed with our magical Oil Up and a dollop of the ultimate skin healer, Butter All Over.
Although citrus can be an allergen for some, for many it has a powerful ability to sooth the symptoms of seasonal allergies. In any case, steam is the answer. Settling on suffering should not be an option with the ancient solution- soak.
