Aromatherapy for Allergies

Ready to try a new approach to calming allergy symptoms? Essential oils may be just the thing. “The great thing about essential oils is that all of them are anti-viral and anti-microbial, so they naturally boost immunity,” says Jessica Smith, lead practitioner at our Carlsbad store. “Because people with allergies often have low immunity, they can be a great way to support your immune health.”

The simplest way to use essential oils is just to keep a bottle of Lavender or Tea Tree on hand, she says. “They’re the only two essential oils you can put on the skin directly, without a carrier oil,” says Jessica. “If you come in contact with an allergen, just rub a drop into your palms or anywhere else that was exposed to sanitize the skin.”

Here are a few other ways to incorporate essential oils into your sniffle-fighting routine.

Infused Neti Salt
8 tbsp Neti Pot Salt
5 drops Rosemary
3 drops Tea Tree

Mix in a glass jar and use 1-2 times per day throughout allergy season. “These two essential oils can also be used without salt—just add to two cups of warm water and use as a nasal rinse,” says Jessica.

Topical Blend
2-3 drops Peppermint
2-3 drops Eucalyptus
2-3 drops Lavender
1 tsp Coconut Oil

Mix well in a glass jar and massage the mixture into the temples, behind the ears, into the bottoms of the feet or on your chest. The peppermint helps unclog sinuses and acts as an expectorant; eucalyptus helps open up the lungs and bronchials to improve respiration; and lavender helps fight inflammation and reduce the overreaction of the immune system, says Jessica.

Household Spray
40 drops Lemon
20 drops Tea Tree
16 oz Distilled Water
Dash White Vinegar

Add to a spray bottle and mist on surfaces that harbor allergens to disinfect and cleanse the air—with the added benefit of infusing the air we breathe with therapeutic, immune-boosting oils.

Hello. I see that you don't update your blog too often. I know that writing content is boring and time

you to create new articles using existing content (from article directories or other blogs from your niche)?
And it does it very well. The new posts are unique and pass the copyscape test.
