It’s that season again. Even with all the beautiful sunshine, there is always one big disappointment/inconvenience (at least for me) to the warmer seasons of the year. It’s allergy season!
For those of you, like me, who suffer with a runny nose, itchy eyes, scratchy throat (a lovely sight to behold, for sure), there is help out there — and it is a natural solution using three essential oils.
- Peppermint — helps to open the airways, improve breathing and ease respiratory congestion
- Lemon — improves immune function and removes excess mucus; cools the inflammation that results from the allergic reaction
- Lavender — natural antihistamine and possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties
This combination of essential oils is used with equal parts of each of the three oils.
♦ In your diffuser: 2 drops of each oil and diffuse in any room
♦ Using a roller bottle: Rub on the bottoms of your feet, chest and back of the neck for a continued effect. Repeat two or three times during the day.
♦ Fast relief: Place a couple of drops of this blend on your palms and rub together. Then cup your hands over your nose and inhale deeply.
