This spring, stop and smell the flowers with do it yourself Wildflower Seed Bombs
Spring in Texas is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Wildflowers are everywhere and bluebonnet pictures are an annual tradition. But if you suffer from seasonal allergies it can also mean plenty of sneezing, runny nose, itchy watery eyes, nose or throat.
Using one Xyzal® Allergy 24HR a day gives me relief from indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms, and it starts working in 60 minutes. Which means that I can continue to enjoy all of my favorite spring activities. Xyzal is now available over-the-counter at CVS in 10ct, 35ct, 55ct, and 80ct sizes.
While I love looking at the wildflowers as I drive, I also wanted to enjoy some a little bit closer to me. It was easy to plant plenty of wildflowers by making do-it-yourself wildflower seed bombs.
After picking up some Xyzal at CVS I also picked up some air dry clay, potting soil, and wildflower seeds. You’ll need a ratio of 3 parts clay to 1 part soil and 1 part seeds.
Knead the clay and roll it out into a circle. Place the soil on top of the clay and then add the wildflower seeds on top. Fold the clay over and then begin kneading everything together.
If the clay is too stiff you can add some water to make it easier to work with.
Once all the supplies are kneaded together you can pinch off small pieces and roll them into balls. Allow the seed bombs to dry fully, which takes approximately 48 hours.
Once the wildflower seed bombs are dry you can use them! Toss them out into the yard or wherever it is that you want them to grow. It’s best to place them before a rainstorm so that they can become wet and begin sprouting.
The seed bombs also make a lovely spring gift! To gift mine, I wrapped them in burlap and twine.
Cut out squares of burlap and place one seed bomb in the center. Wrap the burlap around the seed bomb and tie it closed.
I picked some tiny flowers from my yard to add to the top of the burlap to give them a splash of color.
When my wildflowers have bloomed I will be able to really enjoy them thanks to Xyzal and relief from my seasonal allergy symptoms. Full prescription strength is as effective at hour 24 as hour one. Xyzal even helps me get a better night’s sleep by relieving my allergy symptoms at night. I take one before bed, per directions on box, and then I wake up ready to smell the flowers and take on a full day. Always read and follow product labeling.
