ABOUT THE ESSENTIAL OILS
- Lemon oil is loaded with antioxidants, which are detoxifying and purifying. These properties are great for seasonal threats because it boosts the immune system while helping the body detoxify.
- Lavender is both soothing and calming for the body.
- Peppermint is a cooling oil and helps relieve tension. In addition, it can promote healthy breathing and assist in opening up airways.
You can use these essential oils in three different ways to relieve seasonal symptoms: aromatically, internally, and topically.
- Add 3 drops of each oil to your diffuser. This would be good anytime you are hanging around the house and in the bedroom overnight.
- Diffusers disperse small molecules of essential oils into the air, and they enter the body when you breathe them in. Lemon, lavender, and peppermint are all cleansing oils.
- Boil a pot of water on the stove, remove it from the heat, and add a couple of drops of each oil to the water. Stand over the pot and breathe in the steam.
- Be careful not to burn yourself. You may want to close your eyes to avoid irritation.
- Use a towel to trap the steam in, making this more powerful and beneficial to the body; this will give you instant relief by opening up airways.
- A steam treatment is a great pre-bed option to promote clear breathing.
Add one drop of each essential oil, lemon, lavender, and peppermint to the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and place them over the nose. Inhale to receive aromatic benefits for quick and easy relief.
Essential oils are very potent, and not all are safe for internal use. Check with the manufacturer to ensure that it is safe before taking internally.
Always consult with your doctor before taking any essential oils internally.
- Combine 1 drop of each essential oil into a veggie capsule.
- Add one drop of each essential oil to 8 ounces of water.
- Drop the essential oil (no more than one drop) straight under the tongue, hold it there for 30 seconds, and swallow.
- Veggie capsules are my favorite way to take oils internally, especially if I don’t like the taste of a particular oil.
Make a simple bath salt using these essential oils to help open up airways after a long stressful day!
Add 1/2 tablespoon of Epsom salt, 1/2 tablespoon of sea salt, and 3 drops each of lemon, lavender, and peppermint essential oil to a small bowl. Mix all ingredients until well combined and pour into a warm bath.
Soak in the bath for at least 20 minutes to help clear sinuses and help relieve inflammation and tension within the body.
A few more tips
LOCAL RAW HONEY
Honey, especially local and raw, can be used to help with seasonal threats.
Local honey carries small traces of pollen and dust, which can be the very thing you are reacting to. Eating honey can help your body become familiar with these substances. Over time, the symptoms can lessen or go away completely.
Eating honey isn’t going to give you immediate relief but can be very helpful in the long run. Try adding a tablespoon of local raw honey into your daily diet.
One of the best ways to get that balance back on track is with probiotics. Probiotics can replace good bacteria in the gut that has been damaged with diet, environmental threats, and conventional medications.
Probiotics can also boost the immune system and support overall wellness as it introduces beneficial bacteria to the digestive tract.
Eating a diet full of vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, and proteins can help with seasonal threats. Food intolerances are often the root cause of those issues. Try eliminating processed foods and sugars from your diet.
Dairy is another common problem for many people. If you notice symptoms that line up with common dairy intolerances, you may consider trying the elimination diet.
