Essential Oils ~ Seasonal Sufferers’ Relief

If you struggle with seasonal threats – I have a home remedy you really need to try! It is so simple and easy. And it works. At least for us. Non-toxic, natural, organic, and all that fun stuff.

Before you get all glassy-eyed, let me just say…  normally, I am not a ‘health nut’. (No offense to all my many health-nut friends, I love you guys!)  I like to eat moderately healthy, I don’t go to the Dr much, I cook from scratch, etc, etc. But I am not all focused and zen-like about my body and what goes or doesn’t go into it. I mean, I believe our bodies are meant to be cared for in a reasonable manner, and then USED. So yeah.
However, I have a daughter who has had allergies and asthma ever since she was 2 years old. Severe asthma, actually. We have ended up in the hospital with her, and many, many nights of little sleep and much wheezing. She was being given n more and more drugs to calm her lungs down. I don’t mind them – per se, but they are a pain to remember, and she hated them. Hated them, I tell you! She would forget to take them, or not take the full amount. So when we would get a check up, the Dr was always saying: “You have to take these faithfully!” (It’s true – we were horrid patients. My apologies to the nice Dr…I just forget to give them!)
So, when I heard about essential oils, I thought: “Hey, why not?!” I was truly skeptical. I always am. But guess what? They worked. They provided the relief she was needing.

She has used this essential oil trio for 8 months now and it still works. We still forget – she sometimes takes it 2-3x a day, and other days she takes it only once. And when she forgets to take it, she still sneezes. But I can tell her to go take her essential oils, and she cheerfully does. She doesn’t mind them at all.

Her daily regimen:

Method 1:  (quick results)  2 drops lavender, 2 drops Peppermint, 2 drops Lemon.  Put the essential oils in a shot glass of water or juice, and swallow. Use caution when taking this way. We have had no ill effects, but some people have experienced burning of the esophagus, so I suggest taking the capsule.

Method 2: (slower effect) One TriEase capsule.

Important note; Many essential oils in the store or online can contain filler oils. Sure, they say “100% pure oil’, but part of that oil is often some other kind of oil. My rule of thumb is that if it says ‘not for internal use’, then I don’t use it for that. doTERRA oils have a ‘Supplement Facts’ label – just like any food product. So just be careful what essential oils you ingest! IMG_2517

I hope you can find relief from itchy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing, as well!

    My sons both get allergies, I have the doterra oils and I’m filling a roller bottle just for them, but not sure how many drops of each to combine with the carrier oil. Any idea? I can’t find a child safe recipe anywhere.

      I haven’t done that, so I can’t say how much exactly. If it were me, I’d mix equal drops of the essential oils, then add that mix to the roller bottle at a 1:1 ratio. (one drop EO mix/one drop carrier oil) :)

    That is awesome that there are so many remedies to allergies. I am impressed that different scents can help relieve some of your allergy symptoms. That is cool that you provided a few different methods of allergy medications that you can try.
