Natural brand Becca & Mars has launched Refresh, an aromatherapy line to help with congestion brought on by colds, flu and seasonal allergies. Usually I have terrible allergies for at least 7 months of the year. Since we’ve moved, I haven’t had any. See, there are some perks to living without trees.
