Natural Remedies For Allergies
Get Relief Without Drugs with Young Living Essential Oils
Young Living Therapeutic grade essential oils can be a great blessing to those who struggle with chronic or seasonal allergies! My family and I have found that essential oils offer relief without using harmful chemicals that often mask symptoms rather than assist in healing!
My Daughters Allergy Testimonial
My daughter suffered from allergies and eventually it would lead to her getting sick. Her symptoms were severe and included a barking cough, runny nose, congestion and sneezing. She suffered terribly and lived at the allergy, pediatric, and ENT (ear, nose and throat) doctors’ offices. I felt so bad giving her over-the-counter medication just to get her through school. Sometimes she would even have to use the nebulizer. When I discovered Young Living Essential Oils my daughter was cured instantly just by inhaling Valor Essential Oil blend three times a day! My husband and I were amazed and also very thankful for finding a natural remedy. This was one of my earliest experiences with Young Living Essential Oils and was one of the main reasons I started sharing Young Living Essential Oils with the world.
What Are Allergies?
An allergy is an over-reaction of the immune system to a normally harmless substance such as dust, pollen and animal hair. In essence, our bodies respond as if attached by the invading allergens. In defense, our bodies fight the allergens off with a barrage of antibodies, which then trigger inflammation. Allergic reactions are recognized as one of the most important causes of illness and disease in the US. Progressive doctors will now discuss inflammation as a root cause when you present with diseases like asthma, allergies, irritable bowel syndrome or rheumatoid arthritis.
What Can You Do?
Essential oils alone can bring relief and even help rid some of the allergy entirely. Finding the root cause of the allergy is your biggest asset and will eventually help lead you to dealing with the problem once and for all. You can make an appointment with an allergist to get tested to find out what exactly you are allergic to. Then try to avoid the allergic substances, reduce your exposure to toxins and eat an anti-inflammatory diet full of non-processed whole foods. Removing corn products and gluten also helps when symptoms are acute. Use a non-toxic cleaner such as Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner. I use it and love it! Thieves Cleaner is remarkably economical, effective and smells great!

About Your Body and Allergies
When you are exposed to allergy inducing grasses or pollen, your body responds by producing histamine, which leads to a whole range of allergy symptoms as it causes cells in your nose and throat to swell and leak fluid. By taking an anti-histamine – preferably before exposure to allergens – receptor sites in your cells are able to resist the binding of histamine, sparing you the symptoms you find so uncomfortable.
Lavender Essential Oil: The Natural Antihistamine
Lavender is a natural anti-histamine, and anti-inflammatory. . . which is exactly what you want to safely and effectively conquer your seasonal allergies. If you just use ONE OIL…use this one!
Ideas For Using Lavender:
- diffusing lavender at bedside while sleeping
- applying lavender to the soles of the feet
- rubbing lavender on the face after washing
- taking lavender orally in capsules
- rub lavender on your pillow before you sleep
- when taking internally, mix one drop of Lavender with Local Raw Honey 3x a day for acute symptoms and 2x a day for mild symptoms. Use as much as you need. This method works on my children and instantly works.
- drink Lavender Lemonade and sip throughout the day
