Allergy Relief with Essential Oils

Allergies are caused by the immune system reacting to a foreign substance known as an allergen.  Of course, you and your doctor will want to track the source and take action to eliminate foods or other offending substances from your eating plan or environment whenever possible.

In some instances, a more immediate need for relief exists, and for that, there are many essential oils that are great for soothing symptoms.

Here are a few of them:

Peppermint Oil – Has anti-inflammatory properties and can help to quickly clear blocked sinuses and ease nasal congestion caused by allergies.

Lavender Oil – Works as a natural antihistamine and will help to reduce inflammatory allergic reactions in your body. 

Chamomile Oil – Is a soothing herb that is known for its relaxing properties. If you have itchy, red skin rashes or hives caused by allergies, use chamomile oil for fast relief.

Tea Tree Oil – Can help to remedy allergic skin reactions by reducing inflammation and preventing infections. The antibacterial properties of tea tree oil can also be useful in destroying mold, fungi, and bacteria particles in the air, thus reducing symptoms of allergies at home.

Lemon Oil – Is used to treat respiratory problems associated with allergic reactions. Lemon is a natural antioxidant agent that can help cleanse toxins and reduce the body’s response to allergens.

Oils can be used with a diffuser, by being diluted with water and used as a room spray, or mixed with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, and then massaged into the skin.

IMPORTANT!!  As with any substance natural or man-made, you could be allergic to certain essential oils.   I have a family member who reacts to lemon and a close friend who is symptomatic around chamomile.  It is important to remember you are the expert of you!
