Relief for Allergies

Testimonies from Oil-Testimonials:

I have been using Peppermint oil since about February 2010, 1 drop on tongue 1-3 times per day for my allergies, also works great when I start getting head pain.

I ALWAYS suffer from hay fever starting in August.  Not anymore thanks to Lavender oil from Young Living!  Not EVEN a sniffle!

My wife has had seasonal allergies for years and has been taking Claridon for as many as she can remember. After hearing about the many properties of this “swiss army knife of oils”, lavender, she wanted to try it.  She applied the oil to her chakra points and behind the ears in the am and pm and whenever she began to fill up. Well, I can’t stop her from telling others how this oil has helped wean her from the nasty allergy meds and naturally taken away almost all of the symptoms of her allergies. It works.

My husband has terrible seasonal allergies, with symptoms of itchy, swollen, watery eyes, sniffling and sneezing.  He use to carry OTC (over the counter) medication with him at all times.  Since he started using lavender oil 3 years ago he has not used an OTC since.  He applies a little lavender just under his nose when symptoms arise and repeats as needed.  You can also apply to the vitaflex points on the feet.

I have not been able to mow or weed eat in years due to asthma and allergies. I persuaded my husband to let me weed eat the yard (knowing how I am sick for days after I do anything like this) just to help out. I thought to put a few drops of Lavender on my hands and rub them all over my face right as I was going out the door. I had NO REACTION at all! I have not been able to do lawn work in years and have missed it. Young Living Oils are little miracles in a bottle!

After suffering from allergies and taking medication and still not having any relief, I tried diffusing some peppermint oil.  Still not doing great.  About 5 minutes later, I took the bottle, tilted it to get a drop on my finger, rubbed one drop on my temple, one on my forehead, and one drop on each nostril.  Ahhh… finally got relief!  It was within one to two minutes that I felt it start to clear.  15-20 minutes later, I feel almost normal again after feeling horrible all day.  Thanks Young Living for this awesome oil!

I have personally seen instant relief by using the Allergy Duo on a toddler who was miserable, congested and coughing and had puffy eyes from allergies. We applied Lavender and Peppermint and he inhaled both. Instant Relief. The mom became a believer in Young Living Oils right then. {Recommendations only for Young Living Oils}

for many, many years Young Living Essential Oils peppermintto relieve nasal congestion.  For some individuals, the use of peppermint oil has eliminated the need for allergy shots.

Here’s how to use Peppermint Essential Oil to get some allergy relief:

Topically: Apply 1 drop of Peppermint Essential Oil to the temples, forehead, top of head, back of neck.

*Why Glass Only? Young Living Essential Oils are very strong and will eat away the petrochemicals in plastic and styrofoam. You will be drinking plastic in your healthy water.
