Essential Oils and Allergies

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.

How can essential oils help you lose weight? brittany-neale-eQ2PUDrwSx0-unsplash

This includes having more energy to exercise and less desire to eat sugary foods. People who are tired are generally more likely to reach for unhealthy snacks or fast food that can provide an instant sugar rush.

Some essential oils may also help:

  • reduce anxiety
  • relieve tension
  • reduce feelings of depression
  • ease aches and pains in the body
  • improve digestion
  • curb food cravings
  • energize your workout
  • correct cellulite
  • correct stretch marks

Patchouli 1 drop

Blend the essential oils into your diffuser 

Although essential oils are generally seen as safe to use, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Essential oils shouldn’t be ingested. These oils are super potent, and even a few drops can cause you to experience severe gastrointestinal discomfort. If you do ingest essential oil and have an adverse reaction, seek medical assistance.

Never use undiluted essential oil, as it may cause inflammation and irritation. You should always do a patch test to determine how your skin will react to the diluted essential oil.

If you are pregnant or nursing, be sure to consult with your doctor before use.

Why Is Thieves Oil So Special?

Thieves Essential Oil is THE ONE oil you need in your medicine cabinet to combat so many things for your well-being and in your home!dsc_0931.jpg

Thieves Oil has so many uses that you should never be without it and it’s the number one way to stay healthy in your home!

Thieves is an essential oil blend and one of the best-selling products available from Young Living. It’s a blend made with Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Rosemary and Lemon essential oils. It’s one of my favorite essential oils. It smells like fresh-baked cookies (it’s spicy and earthy).

The benefits of Thieves oil stands the test of time. But just what is it about this blend, and these oils in particular, that make it so beneficial for your health?

Clove Essential Oil

The essential oil from this fragrant spice can help stop tumor growth and fight cancer cells, kill powerful bacteria such as E. coli, and even help reverse signs of liver damage.

Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

Research has found that is anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, and can even help fight cancer and neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

The active ingredient in it is proven to be effective against many powerful viruses and bacteria, such as tuberculosis and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). It also stimulates your immune system and can help relieve respiratory conditions such as asthma.

Rosemary Essential Oil

Rosemary contains powerful compounds that can help prevent neural cell death (in the case of neurological diseases), protect against brain inflammation and also lend its strong antibacterial and anticancer properties.

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon oil improves digestion, reduces kidney and liver damage, and acts as a powerful disinfectant. Many of the antioxidant compounds in lemon, including limonene, are thought to be responsible for its wide range of benefits.
