Now, that Spring is here, the allergies are at its height-point in our house. Several years ago, I found out about an essential oil blend, when diffused it promotes relief during the allergy season. I’ve got a couple of candle diffuser and a wax melting diffuser. For the candle diffuser I use distilled water and 2 drops of each lavender, lemon, and peppermint oil. Since the wax melting diffuser doesn’t get warm enough for diffusing the oils in water, I melt one tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil and add the EOs. Since we use this blend, my family and I can breathe better, we sneeze less, and it smells good in the house.
Note: I do NOT promote ingestion of any kind of essential oil, nor do I promote to use it neat on skin. I always dilute my essential oils with a carrier oil. Also I recommend to do research, before using essential oils around children under the age of 10 years and around pets.
