It’s the start of allergy season!! If you are looking for a more natural relief, we have some ideas for you!! From supplements to essential oils and homeopathic remedies… there’s something here for you!
Young Living’s Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint essential oils are often used together as a natural remedy for allergies. Here are some potential benefits of using these oils:
- Lemon essential oil: Lemon is known for its cleansing properties and may help to support healthy respiratory function. It may also help to promote a healthy immune response and may have a calming effect.
- Lavender essential oil: Lavender is often used for its calming and relaxing properties. It may also help to reduce inflammation and support healthy respiratory function.
- Peppermint essential oil: Peppermint has a cooling and soothing effect and may help to open up the airways. It may also help to reduce inflammation and support healthy respiratory function.
When used together, these oils may help to provide relief from seasonal and environmental allergies. Some people choose to diffuse the oils or apply them topically (diluted with a carrier oil) to the chest, neck, or temples. However, it is important to note that essential oils should be used with caution and under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
Allerplex is a dietary supplement from Standard Process that is designed to support the body’s natural response to seasonal and environmental stresses.
