The recent hot weather has brought with it a welcome opportunity for a spot of sunbathing and the first barbecue of the year, but, as many allergy sufferers know, the summer sun comes with less-than-pleasant consequences. The start of the season also brings about an increase in naturally occurring irritants, especially the pollen released by flowers, grass and trees. Even by staying inside, it can be hard to avoid allergens. Some of the most common allergies have been nicknamed home fever, where symptoms are triggered by airborne irritants like dust mites and mould spores that are commonly found in the home. Unlike hay fever, these allergens and the resulting symptoms can affect sufferers all year round. And that's where the Fragrance Lamp comes in. Like the name suggests, Fragrance Lamps are a unique way to uplift the home through scent - but that's not their only benefit, especially for those battling home allergens.
Spring Equinox at the start of this week means spring has officially begun and the days lengthen, the sun begins peeking out from behind the clouds and the first flower buds poke their heads out of the earth.
