Seasonal Alergies

As we all know we absolutely love the summer, but with sun comes high pollen levels and hayfever.

The top 6 single essential oils for seasonal discomfort in general is.

  1. Maleluca aka Tea Tree Oi

  2. Eucalyptus Oil

  3. Lemon Oil

  4. Basil

  5. Peppermint Oil

  6. Lavendar

Maleluca

Maleluca also commononly known as Tea Tree Oil has been used by Aborigines to treat wounds for centuries. The oil has strong antiseptic properties and can kill airborne pathogens. You can use tea tree oil in diffusers and topically, and when sprayed inside the home, it can destroy allergens that may be triggering your system.

The antimicrobial properties will kill mould, bacteria, and fungi, and it’s also a powerful antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, making it a supurb choice against skin irritations. If you have skin rashes or hives, try applying 2–3 drops of pure or diluted tea tree oil with a cotton ball.

Diluting the oil into a carrier oil like fractionated coconut or jojoba is recommended for people with sensitive skin.

It is very effective for congestion. They recommended way to treat it is by doing steam inhalationwith the oil.

Eucalyptus Oil

Eucalyptus oil is a workhorse when it comes to combating seasonal allergies and asthma. This oil opens the lungs and makes breathing easier. When inhaled or applied topically, the menthol in the eucalyptus provides a cooling sensation and supports the respiratory system.

Eucalyptus oil can be used topically but diluted with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil or jojoba oil. Apply it to the neck, chest, and bottoms of your feet. When you have a sore throat, make a mouthwash of eucalyptus oil and water and gargle with the mixture.

Put eucalyptus oil in a diffuser for relief day or night, but for more acute treatment, try adding 1–2 drops to a bowl of boiling water. Drape a towel over your head and breathe in the steam from the bowl.

Lemon Oil

Take lemon oil internally as a way to relieve seasonal allergy discomfort. When diffused, it can help kill off potential allergens in the air. Add 1–2 drops of the oil to a glass of water to improve immune function and remove the toxins.

Lemon has been used for years to treat a variety of ailments, and its antibacterial, antimicrobial, and detoxifying properties are ideal for treating allergies and keeping your home clean. It’s demonstrated that lemons have been used to treat a variety of ailments in Ayurvedic medicine for over 1,000 years.

One of the strongest properties of lemon is the presence of the antioxidant limonene, with has been shown to have cancer-fighting properties. It’s important to point out that the oil is from cold pressing the peel; it does not come from the fruit flesh.

More specifically, lemon oil help drains your lymphatic system, which aids your immune system. It addition to its healing properties, lemon can rejuvenate the skin and even act as an insect repellant. When you have allergens present in your system, lemon works to eliminate those toxins, helping alleviate your symptoms faster.

For immune support, dilute lemon oil with coconut oil and rub it into the back of your neck. You should start to feel the benefits right away.

As with many oils, you should avoid contact with the eyes, inner ears, and other sensitive areas.

Basil

This spicy, aromatic, herbaceous oil is useful in cooking, but it can do much more than that. Basil oil is pure and concentrated, so you know you’re getting the best essential oil on the market.

Basil can be used topically in a diffuser, and apparently be taken internally. Basil is known to aid in breathing when you have allergies, but it can also soothe sore muscles and increase mental clarity.

Basil blends well with a wide variety of other oils, including:

Bergamot

Cypress

White Fir

Geranium

Lavender

Peppermint

Wintergreen.

Basil is particularly good at reducing inflammation caused by allergies. When you have basil oil on your system, it promotes blood flow to the brain, heart, and muscles. Studies have also shown that the antimicrobial properties of basil can help kill bacteria, yeast, and mold that can lead to respiratory problems.

To fight inflammation, take one drop of basil oil internally by adding it to food such as salad or soup. To aid in respiratory problems, mix 2–3 drops of basil oil with an equal amount of coconut oil and rub into the chest, back of the neck, and temples

Peppermint

Most of us associate peppermint with sweets, but its minty properties are a powerhouse. It is helpful is treating a wide variety of ailments, including allergies. This truly versatile oil makes an almost immediate difference when you’re having trouble breathing clearly. It can immediately open up your breathing passages so you can finally get some relief. Peppermint oil helps clear the sinuses and relieve scratchy throats. Also, peppermint is an expectorant and can alleviate allergies, colds, coughs, sinusitis, asthma, and bronchitis.

Peppermint goes beyond treating respiratory issues; it’s also good at treating digestive problems. One study suggests that peppermint has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce the symptoms of such conditions as bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis.

Add 1–2 drops of peppermint essential oil into a glass of water and take daily to relieve respiratory problems. You can also apply the oil to the back of the neck, the temples, or the chest. Some people may be sensitive to peppermint oil, so you should dilute the oil with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil.

For all day relief, add peppermint oil to a diffuser, or dilute 1–2 drops of carrier oil and massage along the outside of the nostrils. Alternatively, you can rub one to two drops into the palms of your hands, then breathe several long, deep breaths through your nose.

For a healing blend that fights seasonal allergies, try diffusing peppermint along with clove and eucalyptus oils.
