Address Outdoor Seasonal Threats with Essential Oils

Support your immune system with essential oils. Essential oils are simple, inexpensive and very effective.  These three oils – Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint – help to combat seasonal threats.
Either rub one drop of all three on the back of your neck of take 2 drops of each internally either in a glass of water or put in a empty capsule.    If those don’t work for you, you may also want to add Melaleuca, Thyme and/or Frankincense.

    Now that spring is coming again, I will definitely need this. Is Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint oil all have different benefits, or is it enough if I only use one?

    • Rebecca says

      One is better than none but all three together really work well together. It depends on the person too. I leave out the lemon sometimes and don’t notice much of a difference.

    Great ideas/tips about using oils for allergies. I have TERRIBLE allergies during corn harvesting season (which is upon us), so I will definitely be doing all of this! Thanks!

  3. Mary Pat Brown says

    The pollen and smoke is really bad in Anchorge now and many are affected by it. I’d like to try the allergy bomb and see it work. Is the Tri Ease the same combination?

  4. Paula says

    I have a student that is getting ready to leave for the military, and is extremely worried about her allergies. Is there a blend of these oils she can take w/ her? They won’t let her take meds etc….and I think one bottle is something she may be able to get through basic with. Can you blend the oils and put in a dropper, or does blending ahead of time reduce efficacy???

  5. eleanor says

    It works! I was having severe allergies tonight. My friend who just started selling essential oils brought over the oils you mentioned. I am doing SO MUCH better. I was in misery before she came.

  6. alicia says

    I just got a sample of the Citrus sinensis essential oil- I put a drop or two in my smoothies in the morning and I LOVE it. Such a strong, pure smell & taste–just one drop affects the whole smoothie. I’m excited to learn more about the different oils, and excited to see there might actually be something natural for allergies, which I have terribly. :)

  7. Brooke says

    I have nasty seasonal allergies. I sat by a woman selling essential oils on the plane ride home a few weeks back. I bought the physicians kit and the capsules and I make an “allergy bomb” every day. Citrus limon, Lavandula angustifolia and Mentha piperita. It’s amazing! So far so good! Feeling lucky to find a natural way to get though allergy season.

  8. Brandy says

    I just put two of the oils on hoping when I wake up in the morning I’m less stuffy. Seeing as I’m breastfeeding I can’t take any med so really hope this helps!

  9. Mere says

    I just started using the oils and I’d love to win the Deep Blue to see if it helps with my knee issues. Thanks for the tips on allergies!

  10. tara shaffer says

    I have never used essential oils so I would be delighted to win!! I have eczema and allergies so I am looking for more alternative remedies to help.

  11. says

    I’m going to try out these essential oils for my allergies. Allergy season in Las Vegas has been really bad this season. :(

  12. Catherine says

    I have been trying different ways to use Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint because I have severe allergies and am on several different prescriptions. I would love to be off of them, but so far, nothing has worked. This will turn the symptoms to moderate/mild for about an hour, but then I have to do it an hour later. I just got my oils 4 days ago, and am already halfway through those three bottles. Is there anything that I can do to get off these meds and make my oil use more effective?

  13. macy says

    This is the worst I’ve ever had my allergies get- and with two oak trees in our yard, I feel trapped inside the house. I would love to try out these essential oils to tame my symptoms.

  14. Heaven Shepherd says

    My oils are coming today and just in time. Just started having allergy symptoms this morning. Can’t wait to try them!

  15. danielle says

    I’m recommending this to my boss to try to help her allergies right now. Cross your fingers that she doesn’t have some crazy reaction to the oils and fire me for trying to kill her! :)

  16. Wendy says

    My son has really bad pollen allergies I have the kit from of essential oils, he is only 7 can in take it internal or just rub the on his back and when should I start using I live in VA

      • Cameron says

        Is the dosage the same for an eight year old as it is for an adult? Five drops of each. If some sort of juice helps get it down is that ok?

        • says

          I would say usually half for children and juice is fine. That’s how we get it down in our house – or I just rub a drop of each on the back of their neck.

  17. Nola says

    I’m hoping that these recommended oils will help make this spring a mild allergy season for me. Just wondering if this . . .minus the peppermint perhaps, would be safe For a nursing mom?

    • says

      From what I’ve found, all the oils are safe during nursing. The main problem is doing something like decreasing your milk supply or making your milk taste bad so peppermint would definitely be out for you. Melaleuca and Frankincense may also be helpful for you. You may have to experiment a little and see what works for you and your baby.

  18. Sara Rakas says

    Id love to try this my daughters all suffer from terrible allergies. There on the maximum dose on their medications and it still doesn’t help. So I really want to try something different.

  19. Angie says

    Thank you so much for this! I just started using oils, and my allergies are awful right now! I’m going to try this today!

    • says

      I recommend using all three oils mentioned in this article. I think they work really well together. Also, Breathe is an awesome oil blend that’s worth a try.

  20. girlsmama says

    I have all three oils. My husband has severe hay fever. How much and how frequently should they be administered? Thanks for your help! This is all new to us.

    • says

      You can put a drop of each on the back of your neck whenever you think you need it or you can put two drops of each in a capsule and drink with water.
