Seeking Advice

I'm cross posting from Facebook. I'm don't want to pump my girls full of medicine, but maybe you guys know something I don't.
1) Eva is allergic to beta-carotene (anything red, orange or green basically). As much as one carrot will give her the runs and boils on her bum. I need recipes. We also have to limit diary and legumes. Or is there a way to heal her gut? The allergy is getting worse, it used to just be sweet potatoes.
2) Grace is terribly allergic to lilac bushes (which cannot be avoided in this town) and I think maybe grass. The neighbors mulched the bushes yesterday and mowed part of our yard and I can hear the poor thing wheezing in her sleep. I don't want to give her benadryl and I think she is too young for it anyway, is there something natural that can help her?
I'm at a loss for both of these.

    I know someone who used to be on here talked about essential oils as opposed to medicine.. Her name was Stefany. I wish she was still on here. I think Lauramay know something about them.
    Also, I know Amyhas a natural therapy she uses for her son and hubby when they are congested. I cannot remember what it is.
    I wish I could be more of help. I am sorry your babes are enduring so much. :(
    My son has severe sensitive skin and an allergy to dairy so I know what it's like to have to fight a battle.

    Grace I thought I had figured out how to keep her away from most lilac bushes, but they bother her even when not in bloom. The neighbor mowed the part of the yard by the nursery window (window was open for circulation) and also mulched the lilac bushes which got things stirring. I have used some essential oils, but it didn't help all night.
    We have the dairy allergy, too.

    They still carry an aroma even when not in bloom, if you cut them. I feel so bad for her. There isn't much you can give babies and it bites.
    My hubby and son have the dairy allergy. It runs on both sides of our family, so my son couldn't exactly dodge it.

      During the day I will put on a pot of water and add a few drips of eucalyptus oil to it and it helps keep everyone clear. At night it's harder but humidifiers help and Vicks has a thing that you plug in and it has these inserts that heat up and smell like Vicks vapor rub. Tristen is allergic to vapor rub if it touches his skin but this helps him SO much!

      Grace is doing better after being away from the open window. It's all I've got to refrain from going down to the church and giving the preacher an earful for coming onto our property and making my baby sick because they messed with the bushes.

        Meg works for an allergy specialist, I think. Maybe she has learned something that might help. I do know that healing the gut takes a lot of change nutritionally with how one eats but other than that I do not know the ins and outs.

        I know some people have had good success with Lavender essential oil for allergies.
