The Power of the Allergy Trio – Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint

If you are an allergy sufferer, symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and headaches are all too common. Some friends just deal with the symptoms and others, like me, go to the doctor and try every over-the-counter and prescription medication available. One thing in common is that we are miserable!

lemonlavenderpeppAfter years of suffering I started looking for an alternative allergy solution, because traditional prescription medications seemed unreliable. At times, they worked temporarily at best, had negative side effects and even exasperated the problem on an occasion or two.

At last I was introduced to doTERRA® essential oils and soon learned that the allergy trio of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint is an effective solution for respiratory and immune support. A popular method of application is with a roller bottle filled with 5-10 drops each of Lemon, Peppermint and Lavender essential oils and then topped off with fractionated coconut oil. I found it’s a convenient way to take in your purse or leave on your bedside table. There’s nothing to measure; it’s just ready to use. It’s so easy that my kids can even apply their own essential oil blend each night!

Applying it to the bottom of the feet is an easy and effective technique, but you can ingest it, inhale it’s aroma properties or place most anywhere on the skin. Try to remember. You really can’t do this incorrectly. What’s also nice is you can determine your own usage method and schedule that works for your family. For example, you might get your Lemon essential oil by drinking it in your daily water. You might get your Peppermint essential oil during mid-day slump by rubbing a drop or two in your hands and inhaling it’s minty fresh aroma for an instant pick-me-up, and you might get your Lavender essential oil in your evening bath as a way to relax and ensure a restful sleep. There’s no ONE way to do this!

In an acute allergy case, I might make what is called an “allergy bomb” with a small juice glass filled with water and 2 drops each of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint essential oils. Melaleuca and Frankincense can also be added, especially if you are feeling a possible infection. Let’s just say it’s not the best tasting drink, but it’s an easy way to intake the oils quickly and effectively.

With doTERRA® essential oils and using the allergy trio blend, I have been able to cut my allergy related prescription and over-the-counter medications by 90%. It’s natural, safe and cost effective with no side effects. Plus, it works!

Finally a Relief for Sinus Pressure

Yes, it’s that time of year when many folks are struck with miserable head colds and congestion. Is it an allergy? Is it a sinus infection? It just hurts and if you see a Doctor chances are she might not be sure either.

If you are suffering from seasonal allergies and sinus pressure and pain, you are not alone. I’ve spent many years suffering from rhinitis and sinusitis with no real explanation. My symptoms became worse shortly after moving to Corpus Christi, TX, and after many failed attempts at pharmaceutical pills, sprays and even surgery, I was desperate for a solution. This is how I found the life changing power of essential oils.

One night I searched the Internet for at-home solutions for sinus pressure and it was suggested to try Eucalyptus oil. My immediate thoughts were how am I going to find Eucalyptus oil? Then I remembered my friend’s neighbor who sold dōTERRA® essential oils and I texted her the next morning.

She took me in like a lost puppy and lovingly showed me her oils. It was nice to try a couple that she suggested for sinus and allergy sufferers and it seemed that Peppermint and Eucalyptus essential oils were my favorite. I took home samples and used both relentlessly until my order arrived. Within a week or so my headaches and sinus pain and pressure lessened and I soon became a believer in essential oils. Now, Eucalyptus is one of my staples during bath time, just a few drops and the fragrance helps open my sinuses. Peppermint acts as an expectorant and provides relief from sinusitis.  It’s my “go-to” oil for severe sinus pressure and pain. It’s easy to dab some on my temples and sinus pressure areas for quick soothing relief.

I no longer use the decongestant, stopped one of my allergy pills and only occasionally take my last prescription allergy pill.  I can breathe!  It’s an amazing feeling not taking so many pills AND actually getting relief.  Thank you, dōTERRA® essential oils.
