If your spring has already started off with a loud “achoo” and you are experiencing the discomfort of seasonal allergies, don’t despair! Nature might be responsible for your symptoms, but nature also holds natural remedies that are effective and safe for you and your family! If you want to stop reaching for packaged pills to treat your symptoms, read on!My favorite easy “go to” remedies can be found in little glass bottles in the form of essential oils. High quality, therapeutic grade essential oils are a must if you are looking to implement more natural remedies into your life. Essential oils are powerful liquids derived from plants and are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs.
Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint oil together make up a powerful and effective “Allergy Trio” which is a very effective natural remedy against both environmental and seasonal allergens. These oils can be used in a variety of ways, but here are my favorite easy applications.
just inhaling essential oils can provide immediate and tangible relief from even the worst symptoms. This can be done straight from the bottles, or my favorite way for my whole family to benefit is to use a device called an essential oil difuser. If you are familiar with humidifiers these are quite similar, but instead of just putting water into the air, they will distribute essential oils into the air. Not only will your house smell wonderful, but you will experience the therapeutic effects of the oils that you are using.
Apply 1 drop each of Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint essential oils to your wrist or the bottoms of your feet. Your skin is absorbent and within seconds the oils will enter your bloodstream and start working to relieve your unpleasant symptoms. You can also put these oils in a glass rollerball bottle for easy way to premix the oils and have them ready for use anywhere. Roller bottles are inexpensive and can be purchased on amazon or may be found at your local health food store.
For really stubborn allergies or just to experience quicker relief, high quality therapeutic grade essential oils that are labeled as safe for internal use can be taken either under the tongue, added to a small amount of liquid and swallowed, or purchase them in premade capsules called “Tri-Ease” that are easy to use.
Whatever method you choose to use them, essential oils are a powerful natural remedy for allergies and have a myriad of other uses to promote health and wellness in your home.
Remember to use a high quality essential oil with no fillers or additives. With essential oils you really do get what you pay for and even though they come in small bottles, they are powerful and a great investment in your wellness!
As with anything, consistent use is necessary to achieve lasting results. Using safe and natural ingredients means you can use them as needed with no concern of adverse side effects or a specific time to wait between doses.
