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 soothing, calming, can help with respiratory issues, and help break down mucus in the body.
- Peppermint is a cooling oil and helpful at relieving tension. It can promote healthy breathing and opening up airways.
OTHER WAYS TO USE THESE ESSENTIAL OILS FOR SEASONAL THREATS
You can use these essential oils in three different ways to relieve allergy 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 cleansing oils and reduce pollens and allergens in the air.
- 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 from congestion by opening up your airways.
- A steam treatment is a great remedy to do before bed to help break up mucus, which may 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.
- Combine 2 drops of each essential oil to a veggie capsule and take 3 times a day.
- Add one drop of each essential oil in 4 ounces of water.
- Drop the essential oils 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 essential oil.
Make a simple bath salt using these essential oils to help with congestion 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, congestion and help relieve inflammation and tension within the body.
MORE NATURAL REMEDIES TO HELP RELIEVE ALLERGY SYMPTOMS
LOCAL RAW HONEY
Honey, especially local and raw, can be used to help with seasonal allergies. The symptoms that come along with allergies, like a runny nose and watery eyes, are the body’s way of flushing out the foreign substance causing the reaction.
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 allergy 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.
Sometimes allergies can affect a person who has a compromised immune system or an imbalance of gut flora bacteria. 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.
Fermented foods like sauerkraut, kefir, or sourdough are naturally full of probiotics and can be added to the diet. Or consider taking a daily probiotic supplement. We use these.
Eating a diet full of vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, and proteins can help with seasonal allergies. Sometimes a food intolerance can be the root cause of constant allergies. Try eliminating processed foods and sugars from your diet.
Dairy can pose a problem to many people, especially when it comes to allergies. Milk is mucus-forming and can make allergy symptoms worse, especially if you have an intolerance to it. It can be hard to pinpoint an intolerance, but the elimination diet is a great place to start.
