We are not really sure why people develop allergies or why they can tolerate some plant species and not others. The tolerance can also change throughout life – some allergies simply dissipate or stop as we age, some get worse. The best line of defense would be to remove the offending allergic agent, but that is not always possible when it is nature.
An allergic reaction can manifest itself as asthma, eczema, hyper-activity, fatigue, itching, a runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes and headaches. None of these symptoms are pleasant and any of them can hinder your daily activities.
The four essential oils we use in this blend are grown and distilled in Canada. We use indigenous plants to counteract our own environmental allergic triggers.
Fir Balsam is excellent for relieving respiratory congestion (we also use this oil in our Cough & Chest congestion blend)
Lavender works to relieve asthma brought on by an allergic reaction as well as offering a quelching factor to subdue reactions to trees, flowers and herbs.
Goldenrod contains quercetin (a natural antihistamine), and may relieve allergic symptoms such as itchy watery eyes. It is also helpful to those who have allergies to pets, and is especially useful for allergies to cats.
Roman Chamomile is from the Asteraceae family as is ragweed. It helps build up an immunity to the ragweed.
Application: Place one or two drops under and around the nose and take 4 deep breaths. Keep the oil with you so you can use it throughout the day to alleviate symptoms.
Precautions: Avoid contact with eyes. Keep away from small children. Do not ingest.
100% pure ingredients: unrefined organic Apricot Kernel Oil (Prunus armeniaca) plus organic essential oils of Fir Balsam (Abies balsamea), Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Goldenrod (Solidago virgaurea) and Roman Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis)
