With spring around the corner, so are seasonal allergies. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, you know that it sometimes feels as though you can’t get away from them no matter what you try. One of our favorite ways to combat this problem is with natural essential oils – many of which have been shown to be just as effective as conventional medicine!
If you’re looking for a natural way to defeat your seasonal allergies, here are four of our favorite essential oils to try:
Eucalyptus is one of our favorite essential oils because it can help with a variety of problems, and allergy symptoms are one of them! Because it is antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and decongestant in nature, this essential oil is great to have in your toolkit during allergy season. One of our favorite ways to get the benefits of this oil is by running a hot shower and spritzing a few sprays of our 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist into the steam.
One side effect of seasonal allergies can be feeling lethargic – like you just don’t have the same amount of energy as you normally do. Citrus oils like orange, lemon, grapefruit, and lime are proven to be energizing and to boost alertness. All of these oils can be found in our Citrus-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist. Add this simple step to your morning shower and get that boost of energy that you’ve been looking for! In a clinical study, lemon oil was also shown to be a comparable alternative for conventional medicine when treating seasonal allergies.
If you’re looking for help to breathe a little easier, Peppermint can help. This essential oil is anti-inflammatory and can also help to bring more alertness and energy, so it’s a win-win! Try sniffing Peppermint straight from the bottle or adding it to your diffuser. Simply fill your diffuser with water, add a few sprays of Mint-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist, and you can breathe in those benefits while you’re going about your day.
Lavender essential oil is one of the more popular oils because of both it’s soothing smell and it’s great benefits. Lavender can help with your allergy symptoms specifically because it has been proven to reduce inflammation and aids as a natural antihistamine. That means that it will help your body fight the allergens and reduce your symptoms. Because Lavender also encourages deep sleep, you can get a better night’s rest, which helps speed up healing as well. Before you go to sleep, try spraying some Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist on your pillow as a pillow spray.
