Allergies seem to be really bad for many people this year. My family is suffering more than any other year. Thankfully we have essential oils from Young Living .
How do I used them?
Lavender – is a natural anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory.
Inhale: Put 1-3 drops of the oil in your hands and rub them together. Cup your two hands over your nose and breath deeply.
Apply Topically: These oils can be applied to the forehead, nose and sinuses, front of the neck and base of the skull.
Diffuse: If you are blessed to have a diffuser, add 5 drops of the oil to the water and diffuse for 15 mins every 2 hours.
Internally: Some report benefits by placing a few drops under their tongue.
Peppermint – has anti-inflammatory and pain relief properties. It has been used for years as a nasal decongestant.
Topically: Apply 1 drop of Peppermint Essential Oil to the temples, forehead, top of head, back of neck. You can do this after the Lavender oil and it can be diluted with coconut, V6 or Oilive Oil. Peppermint is what they call a “hot” oil which means that it can be a skin irritant for some.
Diffuse: Diffuse Peppermint Essential Oil throughout the day.
Inhalation: Inhale straight from bottle. Apply 1-2 drops of Peppermint to the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and cup them over your nose.
Internally: Put one drop in water (not plastic – glass only). This will help to boost your immune system.
Both of these oils are very inexpensive and offer a great benefit! There are approx 250 drops of oil in each 15 ml bottle.
Lavender is $23.50 whls / $30.92 retail
