Many of us suffer from allergies. The sneezing, the watery eyes, the runny nose…it’s literally the worst! Luckily, here at Nature’s Flavors, holistic health is naturally embedded into our products. Let’s talk about a few essential oils that will help you conquer allergy season!
Which Essential Oils Should I Use?
The first oil is an oldie but a goodie! It’s literally the one essential oil that we all know and love… lavender! Undoubtedly, lavender is the solution to all of our problems. Well, just kidding, but it is pretty amazing. In addition to allergies, lavender helps with sleeplessness, stress, and even disinfecting! When it comes to allergies, lavender will provide you with relief because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Basically, if lavender was a superpower, I would want it to be mine.
Next up is a dreamy blend of ravensara, sandalwood, and frankincense essential oil. This combination will help your allergy symptoms by relieving those itchy and runny noses. Moreover, these essential oils will unblock stubborn nasal passages and stop the annoying sneezing.
Eucalyptus oil is another anti-inflammatory that is great for allergies! In addition to tea tree, you can use peppermint and lemon essential oil to help you find that allergy relief you’re looking for.
How Do I Use Them?
We have definitely talked about aromatherapy here on the blog before in regard to stress, sleep issues, and even aches and pains. The same method can be used for allergy relief. After reading the list above, pick out a few of those essential oils and throw them in a diffuser with some water. Depending on the size of your diffuser and the size of your room (or house), the diffuser will fill your space with those essential oils. Not only will it smell realllyyyyyy good, but you will be reaping the benefits of the various properties within the essential oils. This is what’s going to ultimately help you feel some allergy relief.
Occasionally, you may want to switch up the way you use your essential oils. No problem! All you have to do is purchase a carrier oil such as almond or jojoba, and add your essential oils to it. This turns your usual diffuser cocktail into a versatile body oil. Furthermore, you can add drops of your essential oils to bath salts, body wash, or even your favorite lotion. This way, you can get some allergy relief in the morning after your shower or when you are winding down with a bath.
The Bottom Line
Essential oils are great for allergy relief! They are all-natural and can provide you with more benefits than just allergy relief. Shop our all-natural and organic essential oils here. 😉
