Top 3 Essential Oils for Allergies


It’s that time of year again when the beautiful buds are blooming, the birds are chirping and you are cursing, sneezing and itching. Sounds idyllic – NOT. Seasonal allergies are miserable! Over 60 million people are affected by allergic rhinitis, also known as seasonal allergies and that number keeps growing every year. I was a long time user of Benadryl, Claritin and whatever else I could swallow for allergies. That was until I decided to make the change to a more natural approach, and long term solution.

Top 3 Essential Oils for Allergies:

Lavender – Lemon – Peppermint

Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint essential oils can create a powerful all-natural antihistamine. These three oils together can cool down body inflammation resulting from the body’s allergic response. And I can attest, they are miracle workers. Once you combine those 3 oils, they begin to work their magic and you have a wonderful substitution to those synthetic drugs that your body doesn’t like to process.

3 Ways to Use:

Add 3 drops each to shot glass of juice or water, swish 10-20 seconds in the mouth and swallow.*

Add 3 drops each to an empty veggie capsule (available at health food store or doTERRA)*

Add 1 drop each to a spoonful of local honey for children. For adults you can do 2-3 drops each.*

*Only take internally if your oils are CPTG doTERRA Oils. If your oils are not doTERRA, rub on the bottoms of your feet and cover with a sock.

How to Buy:

I highly recommend getting the Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils from doTERRA. Just remember a bottle only has to have 10% of the actual oil in it to be considered 100% pure. Yikes! doTERRA oils are the only ones that are 3rd party tested for purity and potency (read my blog on this here), and can be taken internally.

Start with the Introductory Kit that has the Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint in it. Retail is $26.67 and if you buy wholesale it is $20.00. Please visit my doTERRA site for this kit. If you want to buy wholesale please comment on here, or message me directly as I have to personally set that up for you. Then whatever you buy in the future is 25% off. Plus find out 101 Uses for these 3 oils here.


I’ve had several people in my home who are even allergic to cats that this combination in a capsule has worked well for. 5 drops each, Lemon, Lavender & Peppermint = results like a Sudafed. – Lisa Jones

If you can stand the taste, 2-3 drops of peppermint, lavender, and lemon in an oz or 2 of water, swish around in your mouth, and swallow. I used to take Claritin D everyday, and now I don’t have to. It has worked wonders for seasonal allergies and cat allergies for me! – Rachel Snyder

My mom has bad allergies. She says she uses 1 drop of peppermint oil tapped on her Thymus (gland right above the hollow in your throat) daily to help prevent them. When she has an additional need she takes the Lemon, Lavendar, and Peppermint in a capsule. and if needed rubs a little lavendar on her forehead and on her cheeks under her eyes. -Jaime Dye

I love the LLP combo. I also rub lavender around my eyes to relieve the itching. Just use about 1 drop to rub under eyes on eye bone and around the sides. Works wonders, and if I do both in the morning I am set for the day. – Jenni French

I can’t tell you how amazing this natural remedy is for allergies. Supporting your body with natural medicine vs synthetic medicine not only can be very effective, but can reduce all those unwanted side effects. It’s a win-win and will leave you feeling amazing. I can now breathe and have gotten rid of those headaches, sneezing and itchy eyes. I’m looking forward to long days celebrating Spring in the great outdoors!

    My husband and son suffer from allergies and I am looking for an alternative to over the counter medicines. I would love to purchase the doTerra oils wholesale. Thank you!

    • Mary Crimmins May 27, 2014 at 7:16 pm #

      Hi Ali, I tried to email you and got a message send failure in return :( Do you have another email address? Thank you!

  2. Ellen Levine May 29, 2014 at 7:47 pm #

    I am having a terrible time with allergies here in Washington, DC. Over the counter medicines aren’t working. I would love to try this combination. However, I cannot take any medication with D in it including pseudofed. Is this combination still right for me? If so, I would love to buy it wholesale.

    Thank you,

    • Mary Crimmins May 30, 2014 at 5:12 pm #

      Hi Ellen! These oils are pure essential oils with no additives. When you you buy lavender you are just getting pure, all natural lavender oil. So great right?! They will not effect over the counter medication. However, I am not a physician or doctor, so I’d recommend consulting one if you’re not sure.

  11. Bimali July 9, 2014 at 10:48 pm #

    Hi Mary
    I ordered the Intro kit (Lavendar, lemon and peppermint) for my 11yr old son who has allergies. My question is you recommend a blend of all three oils to be taken internally but only the lemon and the peppermint bottles say : for dietary use. The lavender says : topical use only.

    • Mary Crimmins July 11, 2014 at 6:45 pm #

      Hey Bimali! Hmm I’m a little confused by this. My bottle at home says “for aromatic, topical, or dietary use.” It needs to have the supplements facts guide on the bottle. My bottle at home has this. Let me know what you find.

      • Bimali July 12, 2014 at 2:21 am #

        Hi Mary, thanks for your reply. Yes my lavender bottle says very clearly that its for topical use. I have with me the purple and white doTERRA Intro kit – Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint. I would love to start using these asap to reduce the over the counter antihistamine given to my son but not sure how to go ahead. I was sent an email by Carissa Shapiro with the wellness form and a time that you will be calling me but not sure where to do from here as my lavender bottle says topical. Even the advice on the inside of the flap gives advice for all topical uses for the lavender.

        • Mary Crimmins July 14, 2014 at 3:25 pm #

          I will email you!

  12. Molly July 13, 2014 at 11:54 am #

    Good info! Do you know if these 3 are safe to ingest while pregnant? Terrible cat allergies, and unfortunately I’m sharing a house with 2 cats for a week!

    • Mary Crimmins July 14, 2014 at 3:42 pm #

      Hey Molly! Yes, they are safe to use. However peppermint can stop up your milk supply so be aware of that later on. I’ll shoot you an email with more information!

    • Mary Crimmins July 14, 2014 at 7:22 pm #

      Molly do you have another email address? I emailed the one you put in the system and it bounced back with a mail delivery error :( Let me know, I’d love to send you a few pdfs I have of the best oils to use during pregnancy!

  13. Jillian July 17, 2014 at 1:54 am #

    Can I get some info on how to buy wholesale? I need this kit!

    • Mary Crimmins July 18, 2014 at 3:46 pm #

      I’ll send you an email! Thanks :)

  14. Ariel Kindweiler July 20, 2014 at 4:20 pm #

    I’ve been interested in essential oils for a long time but have never been sure how to go about getting started. This kit sound like a great start! I would love to get more info and purchase this kit.

      Hey Ariel! Thanks for stoppin’ by! I’ll send you an email in just a sec ;)

  15. Karen Leach July 22, 2014 at 2:22 pm #

    Suffering from allergies/asthma. Would love to try essential oil kit. Will you let me know how to go about ordering this kit? Also, will you recommend essential oil for tummies! I have been on an antibiotic for sinus infection and now my whole system is out of whack. Have been trying probiotics and my usual concoction of pepto, tagamet, aloe vera juice, etc… Thanks for your help.

    • Mary Crimmins July 23, 2014 at 7:20 pm #

      Hey Karen, I’ll shoot you an email ;) thanks for your comment!

  16. Samantha Garza July 23, 2014 at 3:32 am #

    Our entire family has allergies but I get sick the most from weather changes I am Breastfeeding and heard peppermint oil reduces your supply. What else could you use instead of peppermint?

    • Mary Crimmins July 29, 2014 at 6:07 pm #

      Hey Samantha! I’d recommend just using the lemon and lavender. Using the 2 will still help a lot!

  17. Shelly August 4, 2014 at 11:03 pm #

    I am interested in purchasing the introductory kit wholesale. My 7 year old daughter has bad seasonal allergies, but hates to take medicine. I am hoping rubbing the essential oils on her skin will help.

    • Mary Crimmins August 5, 2014 at 4:37 pm #

      I’ll shoot you an email Shelly!

  18. Antonina August 7, 2014 at 1:52 am #

    Why do you say not to rub doTerra oils on your feet? What is the difference between those and others?
