For the past couple of days, I’ve had some really unpleasant allergy symptoms. Runny nose, stuffy nose, sneezing, red and itchy eyes, and the feeling that my head could float away at any second. Needless to say, it’s been pretty miserable! I’m sure I’m not the only one suffering in Southern California, so I decided to share a simple essential oil blend that REALLY helps alleviate allergies.
Seasonal Allergy Blends Using Essential Oils
This simple blend of just three oil is really nice because you can make it into several different applications like a roll-on and linen/room spray. In fact, I think it works BETTER if you make it this way in order to cover your bases more thoroughly to really get your allergy symptoms under control.
Below are three different ways to make a seasonal allergy blend. All you have to do is pick one that suits your needs and go for it! I personally use all three recipes to help combat allergies and keep the symptoms at bay. Plus, they all smell amazing so that in itself is enough for me to make these simple remedies.
Seasonal Allergy Blend Roll-on
Here’s what you’re going to need to make an allergy roll-on:
• 8 drops lavender essential oil
• 6 drops lemon essential oil
• 6 drops peppermint essential oil
• 1 1oz roll-on bottle
• Carrier oil like jojoba, sweet almond, or fractionated coconut
Loving Preparation- Seasonal Allergy Blend Roll-on
Add each essential oil to the roll-on bottle. Next, fill the bottle to the shoulder with your carrier oil of choice. Cap and gently roll between your palms to mix.
Apply the seasonal allergy roll-on blend to the back of your neck, the bottoms of your feet, and on your collar bones as needed. If you are out in the sun, apply this blend to areas that are NOT in direct sunlight only.
Seasonal Allergy Linen and Room Spray
Here’s what you’re going to need for the allergy linen/room spray:
• 8 drops lavender essential oil
• 8 drops lemon essential oil
• 8 drops peppermint essential oil
• 1 2oz spritzer bottle
• Filtered water
Loving Preparation- Seasonal Allergy Blend Linen/Room Spray
Add each essential oil to your 2oz spritzer bottle. Next, add filtered water to the shoulder of the bottle and cap tightly.
Before bedtime, spritz your pillow and sheets evenly to help eliminate airborne allergens. Smelling this blend while you sleep also balances your natural histamine response, easing symptoms and allowing you to sleep more peacefully. The lavender in this blend also lends itself well to improved sleep.
You can also spritz this blend around your house during allergy season for added benefits.
Seasonal Allergy Blend for Your Diffuser
Here’s what you’ll need for a diffuser blend:
• 2 drops lavender essential oil
• 2 drops lemon essential oil
• 2 drops peppermint essential oil
• A diffuser (check out this article to find more options)
• Filtered water
Loving Preparation- Seasonal Allergy Diffuser Blend
Fill your diffuser to the indicated line with filtered water. Next, add each essential oil and turn on the diffuser.
Diffuse this blend in your office, bedroom, or just throughout the house to help alleviate allergy symptoms for the whole family. Diffuse up to 30 minutes 2-3 times per day during allergy season for best results.
Why These Ingredients Work
Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender essential oil is a natural antihistamine, meaning it decreases inflammation and irritation caused by allergens. Using this oil is a great alternative to OTC allergy medicine because it naturally balances your histamine response without the drowsiness that comes with it.
Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon essential oil is a powerful ally for reducing inflammation and cutting through mucus. It’s natural antihistamine qualities make it perfect for seasonal allergies and treating the worse of its symptoms.
Peppermint Essential Oil
The menthol in peppermint essential oil soothes and opens irritated and swollen airways easing breathing and decreasing congestion. Peppermint is one of the best respiratory support oils making it perfect for use against allergies.
