Spring brings so much beauty and new life. I look forward to it every year. Unfortunately, all that renewal can bring along some unwanted side effects. Seasonal threats can trigger itchy eyes, runny noses, and crazy amounts of sneezing. If I sneeze less than three times in a row this time of year it is cause to rejoice. Whether it's from trees, weeds, grass, or flowers, pollen is a major culprit when it comes to seasonal threats. Essential oils can help naturally protect you if pollen and other triggers affect you this time of year.
Your heavy hitters when combatting seasonal threats are Lemon, Peppermint, and Lavender. Combine 2 drops of each in a veggie capsule and take internally as needed when dealing with the effects of pollen and other seasonal irritants.*
If you prefer a ready made option, use doTERRA TriEase Softgels. They contain equal amounts of Lemon, Peppermint, and Lavender and were designed to protect against seasonal and environment threats and to support healthy respiratory function.* You can take 1-2 per day as needed. These are a must-have for travel.
Other essential oils and blends can also be effective against seasonal threats. You can take 2 drops of Black Pepper, Cassia, or Cinnamon Bark in a veggie capsule when seasonal threats are high.* Breathe Respiratory Blend and Eucalyptus promote clear breathing.* Apply either to the chest or diffuse and inhale. Oregano is also useful to promote respiratory health when seasonal threats are high.* Add 1-2 drops to a veggie capsule and swallow. On Guard Protective Blend is always handy for dealing with the pitfalls of changing seasons.
This video has lots of great ideas that will help you get outdoors and enjoy the beauties of spring.
