3 Natural Ways to Say Au Revoir to Your Allergies!

Posted by Katherine Kelly on


Beautiful and vibrant flowers, full foliage on every street, and pollen covering every outside surface as far as the eye can see. Yes, spring has returned to Florida and that means that our itchy, watery eyes, runny noses, and sneeze-attacks have also returned. If you are like me, then your allergies cause you to have a love-hate relationship with springtime. However, I am going to share 3 natural ways to combat your allergies and help you feel healthy this spring.

  1. The Allergy Buster Kit

The Allergy Buster Kit comes with 10 ML lavender, lemon, and peppermint essential oil bottles as well as 20 veggie capsules. Adding 3 drops of each essential oil to a veggie capsule and taking it internally has been known to alleviate allergy symptoms. Why do these essential oils seem to make a difference? Well, I am glad you asked! Let me tell you a few characteristics of these essential oils.

Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils not only because of its relaxing and delightful aroma, but also because it has been known to treat a variety of ailments. Lavender essential oil is an anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory which may help alleviate seasonal allergy symptoms.

Lemon essential oil is an antioxidant and has been known to help remove toxins from your body. It also has been known to positively affect both your immune and respiratory systems. It is important to remember that when lemon essential oil is applied topically it can cause skin irritation; for safety reasons, you should avoid direct sunlight for roughly 12 hours.

Like lavender, peppermint essential oil is an anti-inflammatory. Peppermint essential oil has been known to aid your body’s respiratory system and assist in opening your airways, reducing asthma symptoms and relieving congestion.

  1. Breathe Free Essential Oil Blend

Our Breathe Free Blend is also one of our go-tos for allergy season. Our Breathe Free Blend is primarily made with peppermint, lemon, and eucalyptus essential oils and has been known to help with snoring, COPD, allergies, Colds, asthma and more! We already know why lemon and peppermint have been known to help with our pesky allergy symptoms but let me tell you a little bit about eucalyptus.

Eucalyptus essential oil is an anti-inflammatory and expectorant, meaning it may help clear mucus from your respiratory system. Some studies on eucalyptus have shown that the oil creates a cold sensation in the nose which may help improve airflow. It is extremely important to remember that eucalyptus is toxic if taken internally and should never be consumed.

What are the best ways to use our Breathe Free Blend? Put 2-3 drops in your ultrasonic diffuser; apply 2-3 drops on your hands, cup your hands over your nose, and breathe in for 20 seconds to open your sinuses; or rub the blend on your neck and behind your ears.

  1. Honey from your Local Apiary

Eating sweet and delicious honey from your local apiary can actually help relieve some of your allergy symptoms as well. Honey that is purchased locally will have the same pollen that you are exposed to every day. By ingesting this pollen your body will begin to build a resistance to these allergens and become less sensitive to them over time.


There you have it! These are my three favorite ways to say au revoir to my allergies and bonjour to spring. My question to you: what is your favorite local honey? Let me know in the comments below!
