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.

Do You Have High Cholesterol?

I was at the doctor yesterday and it turns out that I have higher cholesterol than she would like.  I am otherwise a healthy person.  I walk everyday, get to the gym when I can, and eat what I think of as middle of the road.  Just the right amount of veggies.

I decided to research if  Essential Oils could help me and to my surprise there are 3 top Essential Oils that are very helpful in lowering cholesterol.  I will list them here:

  1. Lavender.   It is known to reduce stress and cortisol levels to protect heart health.
  2. Cypress.  This oil promotes blood circulation and reduces stress, helping to lower cholesterol levels
  3. Rosemary.  With its antioxidant properties, it can reduce lipid levels and help stabilize blood sugar.

Obviously you want to try to eat healthy and exercise regularly, but its nice to know that you can also have some control over your health, and lowering your cholesterol.  To order Essential Oils please click here:  www.myyl.com/lisamaslykhealth
