Allergy Relief kit

Essential oils may be used as an alternative or complementary treatment for allergy symptoms. They’re derived from plants and can be used in a variety of ways.

You may experience seasonal allergies in late winter or spring or even in late summer and fall. Allergies may occur occasionally as a plant you’re allergic to blooms, or you may experience around-the-clock allergies during specific seasonal months.

 

Lavender

Lavender is a popular essential oil because of its many benefits. It may help soothe your symptoms during allergy season thanks to its ability to calm and reduce inflammation. One study concluded that the essential oil prevents allergic inflammation as well as the enlargement of mucous cells.

Try using lavender in a diffuser for aromatherapy, or dilute it in a carrier oil and soak in a bath with a bit added.

 

Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus oil is known as an anti-inflammatory and may help you with your congestion. The cooling sensation you experience while breathing it in may also help you feel relief as you combat seasonal allergies.

Try diffusing it into the air or breathing it in from the bottle to provide you with comfort.

 

Tea tree

There’s still significant research to be done on the connection between essential oils and allergy relief, but tea tree oil may help with allergy symptoms. This is because the oil is recognized as an anti-inflammatory. However, tea tree oils can also trigger allergies. Do a skin patch test carefully.

 

Peppermint

Peppermint essential oil is known to reduce inflammation. You’ll be able to breathe easier by diffusing the oil or even applying it on your skin after it’s diluted with a carrier oil.

Combining peppermint with lavender and lemon oils creates an effective and soothing allergy relief combination as well. However, be aware that combined oils can increase your chances of having an allergic reaction.
