Essential Oils and Allergies

This site contains affiliate links to products. I may receive a commission for purchases made through these links.

Red eyes, sneezing, a runny nose, itchiness and even hives, eczema, and asthma attacks can accompany allergies.  Seasonal allergies, including allergies to various mold and pollens happen all throughout the year for some sufferers, and pet allergies can happen at home or when a sufferer comes into contact with domestic animals such as dogs, cats, and horses. When using an essential oil, it is advisable to consult a doctor first and then proceed with caution. Some oils can make skin allergies worse.

People with these allergy symptoms may wish to try the following oils for seasonal allergies.
