Welcome to ABC's and Allergies! I hope you will enjoy some of my thoughts and experiences with allergies and homeschooling, and try out some of my recipes. I have found a new passion for creating excellent meals that are free of Mandie's allergens, and are so yummy no one realizes they are "allergen free". I am also passionate about raising awareness of food allergies, and raising money for FAAN.

  1. Now Solutions (Now Foods) has an Herbal Revival shampoo and Lavender Fields body wash that are coconut-free. The body wash has vegetable glycerin so I called them and she assured me that it was made from palm.

  2. I just found out that even though I keep most of my food coconut free. I was ill informed about product names for coconut and that it was in everything I use from shampoo to lotion.
