I’ve been hesitant on posting this, conscious of the fact that I am not a health expert or a medical practitioner. But when someone dubbed this trio as the “Allergy Blend”, I just have to try it.
What I am, though, is a person who likes trying new stuff. So when I heard that essential oils are all the rage right now, I got really curious and tried them. Fortunately, I have a good friend who introduced me to an excellent company that sells high-quality essential oils.
Along with healthy fruits and vegetables that I tried which are targeted to help alleviate my symptoms, I bought 3 essential oils “Allergy Trio” that my friend recommended I try.
And… I was hooked.
If you do a quick research online, you will find lots of benefits of peppermint to the body. Its properties consist of being analgesic, antibacterial, anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antiviral, and invigorating. Although I honestly don’t understand most of the terms there, just reading the ‘anti-inflammatory’ property gives me an idea that this stuff is legit. In its essential oils form, it instantly calms my sneezing spasm and my runny nose episodes, stuff that really annoys me when allergy hits. The way I apply it, I put a drop of EO on my finger and apply it to the back of my neck. Careful not to put it near the eyes! Aside from that, I use a few drops of it on my tummy to alleviate my belly pains.
So soothing and calming, this essential oil is perfect for healing scars and insect bites. A lot of people, I included, use it to aid in relaxation especially when I’m mentally stressed out. For some reason, it works! This is one of the Essential Oils that has so many uses and so many benefits that you totally cannot go wrong with it. Burns, Bites, Scars, Sleeps – maybe that will help you remember what it’s for!
Now, we all know that lemon can contribute to clearing out skin blemishes and it’s been used in many facial products suited for oily skin. This has been good news for me since now, I can make my own blend of toner or moisturizer with ingredients that I can definitely understand.
There is more to say about essential oils and their benefits, but if you’re starting out in your own EO journey, I recommend you start with these three and do your own research first. It’s been said that Lavender is the “Swiss Army Knife” of essential oils, the three have been dubbed the “Allergy Trio” – but whatever names they come up with, combine or by themselves, essential oils can do wonders to our body! Not only for allergies but for so much more!
