’Tis the season…for sniffles, itchy eyes, congestion and post-nasal drip, that is! You know, those miserable seasonal woes that so many people suffer from. They can really take the fun out of spring and enjoying the outdoors, am I right? My husband is a serious seasonal sufferer and I bought my essential oils a couple of years ago with this particular need in mind. I wanted safer, non-toxic options for him to use to manage the sneezing, congestion, coughing, and other annoying symptoms that caused him so much discomfort. Well, fast forward two and a half years and, while he still has flare ups now and then, his allergies are significantly better now than they were, thanks to oils!
Essential oils offer us MANY options when it comes to seasonal woes. One of my husband’s favorite oils for these symptoms is lavender! Lavender is known as the “swiss army knife” of oils because it’s great for so many different things and works to help balance the body and work where it’s needed. It’s a natural histamine-blocker and promotes drainage too. When combined with peppermint and lemon, it is known as the “seasonal trio”. Peppermint is fantastic for clearing stuffiness and opening up the nasal passages and lemon is detoxifying, so it’s a great combo for all of your seasonal woes! All three of these must-have oils are super versatile for various issues and they are all included in the Premium Starter Kit!
My husband keeps a roller of the seasonal trio handy for days he needs support. It’s really easy to make…
Seasonal Trio Roller:
Combine 10 drops of lavender, lemon and peppermint in a 10ml roller with a carrier oil like jojoba. Apply to the sinuses and behind the ears as needed.
One of the awesome things about essential oils is that there are lots of options! Here are some other great oils for seasonal issues:
Copaiba – a great oil for swelling (add it to the seasonal trio roller for nasal support)
Melrose – helps clear out nasal passages. Try adding it to a neti-pot!
R.C. – Diffuser R.C. to help support the respiratory system
Breathe Again – this is a pre-made roller blend that Young Living makes that is excellent at supporting the respiratory system.
