Here are three great essential oils that many recommend keeping on hand during the allergy season as they can relieve some of the symptoms. You can mix all of them in a diffuser and inhale the oils, or add all of them in a gel capsule and take orally.

Lemon (Citrus limon) has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Lemon consists of 68 percent dlimonene, a powerful antioxidant. It is delightfully refreshing in water and may be beneficial for the skin. Lemon may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods. Lemon essential oil can relieve excess mucus, and can ease symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Topically: Add 1-2 drops on your chest.

Diffuse: Diffuse Lemon Essential Oil in a cold diffuser for 15 minutes every 2 hours. Great mixed with Lavender and Peppermint.

Inhalation:  Apply 1-2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil into the palms of your hands. After rubbing your hands together, cup them over your nose and deeply inhale 4-6 breaths. 

Ingest: Place 1-2 drops of the essential oils on your tongue and rinse your mouth. Mix with hot or cold water for a soothing drink.

 

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia ) has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. The French scientist René Gattefossé was among the first to discover these properties when he was severely burned in a laboratory explosion.

Lavender helps to relieve stress and helps you to relax.

Topically: Add 1 drop to your cheeks, forehead and sinuses as needed. Rub a few drops to your feet before bedtime.

Diffuse: Diffuse Lavender Essential Oil in a cold diffuser for 15 minutes every 2 hours.

Inhalation:  Apply 1-2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil into the palms of your hands. After rubbing your hands together, cup them over your nose and deeply inhale 4-6 breaths. 

 

 

Peppermint  (Mentha x piperita) has a strong, clean, fresh, minty aroma. One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion, it may also restore digestive efficiency.* Jean Valnet MD studied peppermint's supportive effect on the liver and respiratory systems. Peppermint can be used to relieve nasal congestion. 

Topically: Apply 1 drop of Peppermint Essential Oil to the base of your neck twice a day.  Add 1-2 drops to a carrier oil like olive oil or almond oil and apply it around your nostrils. 

Diffuse:  Diffuse Peppermint Essential Oil throughout the day.  Add 8-12 drops to your diffuser.
