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.

Do You Need A Little Energy This Morning?

Hey, guys. Hope you guys are all having a great day. It’s a awesome day for a walk. But this morning, my dog … if you can see him … Ben, decided to get up at 3:00 a.m. and play. This morning when I woke up I was feeling a little bit tired, but instead of reaching for the coffee I had some peppermint essential oil that I rubbed on the soles of my feet and I used a carrier oil. I use fractionated coconut oil, but you can use olive oil. Just something to help the essential oil spread. I also rubbed it in my palms and smelled the fresh scent, and it just woke me up!  The Peppermint Oil  made me feel really alert, really so much better than I was feeling when I first got up.

But yes, if you guys are having a slow morning, try some peppermint essential oil. You’ll be amazed at how much better you feel and how alert and ready for the day. Hope you guys all have a great day, and looks like it’s going to be a good day here today.
