Essential Oils and Blends to Help you Battle Spring Allergies

Posted by Mary Olinger on

 Here comes spring! And here come allergies! Most people who experience allergies start feeling symptoms when the world around them starts blooming. Seasonal allergies develop when the immune system overreacts to something in the environment. If they are not treated, you can feel miserable. Allergies contribute to a runny nose, itchy throat, sneezing, headaches, impaired smell and watery eyes for most people. For those who have allergy triggered asthma, spring can be disastrous. If it is possible, it is best to avoid triggers, but when the season changes you may become a victim.

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a miracle cure for allergies yet. But, there are several essential oils that can be used to offer some relief from symptoms and offer some help boosting the immune system as well. Here are a few to try to see what will work best for you.

Ways to Use Essential Oils for Allergy Relief

There are a few ways to use oils and blends to relieve the symptoms commonly associated with allergies. You may find that using one particular method works best for you, or you might try to alternate them depending on your lifestyle and schedule. Here are the best options for using EOs:

  • Place a few drops on a handkerchief or tissue and hold close to the nose to inhale. Repeat every 1 to 2 hours.
  • Essential oils can be applied to the temples, or the chest, as long as they are diluted with a carrier oil. If you want to mix an ounce, put about 12 drops of the oil or oils in a once ounce container and fill the bottle with olive oil, sweet almond oil or your favorite choice.
