Whats the best essential oil for allergies?
Most allergies are caused by a nasal passage reaction to toxins or allergens, which can be anything from pollen to paint fumes, or bacteria to mold.
The nasal passages then produce thick mucus, usually unnoticed, in an attempt to protect the nasal passages, from the toxins or allergens.
Breathing with this thick mucus in your nasal passages, is caused by allergies, but this can be fought against, using essential oils.
HOW TO GET RID OF ALLERGIES
Tea Tree Essential Oil neutralizes many strains of bacteria, fungi, spores, toxins, allergens, and even viruses.
How to apply Tea Tree to the nasal passages
Option 1 – for people with sensitive skin
Place 6 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil, in 1 oz of water, then shake it for a few seconds. This is your anti-allergy solution.
Pour this solution into an eyedropper bottle (you can buy empty eyedropper bottles on Amazon.com)
Lie down, and squirt the solution into the back of your nasal passages, exactly as you would use a nasal spray.
Option 2 – for average skin sensitivity
Take a q-tip and wet the tip.
Place one drop of Tea Tree on the tip.
Re-wet the tip, so that the Tea Tree Essential Oil concentrate is thoroughly diluted.
Then: Insert q-tip inside nostril.
Gently lead it as far back as it can go.
Hold for a few seconds.
Repeat in other nostril.
PRECAUTION: If it stings mildly for a few seconds, that’s normal.
If it stings a lot, then you did not dilute the q-tip sufficiently. The antidote to stinging, is milk. Coat the back of your nostrils with a q tip which has been dipped in milk. Repeat as needed.
ARE THERE OTHER ESSENTIAL OILS FOR ALLERGIES?
The other top essential oil for allergies, is Lavender Essential Oil. Depending on your body’s chemistry, you may respond better to lavender, than to tea tree, but everyone is different, so if the one doesn’t work for you, try the other.
Blend Lavender identically to the above tea tree recipes.
SPECIAL NOTE: To prevent snoring, you should do Option 1 or Option 2, just before going to sleep.
NATURAL REMEDIES FOR ALLERGIES
It is important to use natural remedies for allergies. Use of antihistamines or other medications, may clear the nasal passages temporarily, but soon after they wear off, you will have more allergies than before, as medications dry out nasal membranes so excessively, that the body later responds by producing excessive amounts of mucus.
