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.

Testimonials:

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!

    I would like info on the essential oils and benefits related to asthma and allergies. What about diffusers?

    • Mary Crimmins January 23, 2015 at 11:13 pm #

      Thanks for your comment! The blend called Breathe is great for targeting Asthma. DoTERRA’s Aroma Light diffuser is one of my favorites because you can leave it on for 8 hours straight!

    Would the lavender, lemon and peppermint blend work just as effectively if it was put in a diffuser as it would if applied topically?

    • Mary Crimmins January 23, 2015 at 11:11 pm #

      I think they work best when taken internally. You can always try them with a diffuser first though. I only ever recommend taking essential oils internally if they are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils.
