Treating Allergies and Hay Fever
Allergies affect millions of people. Anything from hay fever, eczema or asthma are the most common reactions associated with allergies. When allergens enter the body, it can elicit the allergic reaction that we are familiar with; runny nose, sneezing, congestion or even sinus build-up and pressure. This is a common reaction to substances like grasses, weeds, pollen, pet dander, mold, fungus and even dust mites.
To help fight these airborne allergens, a diffuser will help the most. Diffusing lemongrass, melaleuca or On Guard (guarding blend) can fight against allergy causing fungi and molds. Building the immune system by ingesting lavender, peppermint, and lemon can work wonders. Be sure your essential oils are 100% pure before you ingest. Be sure the label doesn’t say “do not ingest”. DoTERRA essential oils are 100% pure and safe to ingest.
One other way of combating allergies is to make a water spritz of lemongrass or another combination of oils. Use this spritz on bedding each night to kill potential fleas or dust mites.
