Essential oils have been a life saver for me when dealing with seasonal allergies. I have allergies all year round, so in the past I have taken allergy medicine every day. Since trying to switch to a more natural way of life (just trying…and not always doing well) I have been trying different alternatives to the typical antihistamines. I have tried nettle leaf, which does seem to help a bit. Here is my Amazon Affiliate link to the Nettle Leaf I tried:

Some other great alternatives to traditional antihistamines are Fish Oil/Omega 3s, Probiotics, Vitmain A and Zinc.

During days where the allergen count is high I still need to take antihistamine but I enjoy using the oils below to help support my system. When the allergen count in low I can usually get away with just using my essential oil blends.

Allergy Trio Diffuser Blend:
  • 3 Drops Lavender
  • 3 Drops Lemon
  • 3 Drops Peppermint

To diffuse the allergy blend, place 3 drops of each oil into your diffuser and diffuser as needed for allergy relief.

Allergy Trio Roller:
  • 10 ML roller bottle
  • 10 drops lavender
  • 10 drops lemon
  • 10 drops peppermint
  • Top off with carrier oil of your choice

Once you have mixed up your roller bottle, you can place the oil mix behind your ears, on your forehead, or on your chest to help with allergies. Please note that lemon oil is phototoxic, which means that using this oil and going out into the sun could cause you to sunburn much more easily. Please use caution when using lemon essential oil. Another option would be to use steam distilled lemon essential oil. Due to how it is distilled, the lemon essential oil is no longer phototoxic.

Why these essential oils for allergies?:

Lavender: Lavender essential oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory and natural antihistamine.

Lemon: Lemon essential oils supports your lymphatic system draining and can help overcome respiratory conditions.

Peppermint: Peppermint essential oil can help to unclog a stuffy nose and help with scratchy throat. It also has the power to discharge phlegm and reduce inflammation.

Essential Oils to Add an extra punch:
  • Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • Copaiba Essential Oil
  • Frankincense Essential Oil

My favorite pre-made blend for allergies is a by the wonderful Plant Therapy. This blend is called Sneezy Stop. This is a kid-safe blend that works great for both adults and kids and smells wonderful. I love diffusing this blend during allergy season in my diffuser when I work.
