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 discomfort is miserable! I love being outside during the Spring and Summer, but if my eyes are watering and I’m sneezing all the time, you can find me inside. That was until I decided to make the change to a more natural approach, and long term solution.

Top 3 Essential Oils to Help Soothe Seasonal Discomfort

Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint essential oils are a powerful way to protect yourself from seasonal and environmental elements. These oils help to maintains clear breathing and healthy immune system function. These three oils together can promote a healthy inflammatory response that is often present during allergy season. And I can attest, they help me breathe much easier! Once you combine the 3 oils, they begin to work their magic and you have a wonderful, natural way of enhancing a healthy immune system.

3 Ways to Use

Add 1-3 drops each to shot glass of juice or water, swish 10-20 seconds in the mouth and swallow.*

Add 1-3 drops each to an empty veggie capsule (available at health food stores)*

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

*Only take internally if your oils are pure therapeutic oils with a supplement facts guide on the bottle. If your oils are otherwise, rub on the bottoms of your feet and cover with a sock. And if you are not sure, then shoot me an email and I can help you out!

What’s Next?

I highly recommend getting your oils from my favorite company. Just remember a bottle only has to have 10% of the actual oil in it to be considered 100% pure. Yikes! The oils I trust and use are the only ones that are 3rd party tested for purity and potency (read my post on this here), and can be taken internally.

I can’t tell you how amazing this natural alternative 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.

*Disclaimer: One of the most vital things you must know about essential oils is not all essential oils are created equally. In fact, most of them are worthless to your health and often synthetic. When buying essential oils make sure they are certified therapeutic grade. If you want to order the brand I trust and personally use, email
