I have been lucky enough not to struggle with seasonal allergies. My husband however, has not. Every spring and summer his allergies flare up to the point where he is always miserable and has trouble breathing. He often wakes up in the morning with severe congestion and sometimes a bloody nose due to inflammation and irritation. We have tried several different remedies, some natural and some not, to find the perfect concoction to help give him relief. The following recipe using essential oils has by far worked the best, and is all natural! We have even tested it out. The nights I do not diffuse this blend, he wakes up stuffy and congested. The nights I do diffuse, he wakes up with clear sinuses the next day. Pretty cool stuff! Here's what I use:
5 drops lavender essential oil
4 drops lemon essential oil
3 drops peppermint essential oil
Diffuse overnight and wake up refreshed!
*Not all oils are not created equal. I exclusively use Young Living essential oils because of their commitment to quality.
