Easing Seasonal Discomforts

We love this time of year with the shift to warmer days and plants beginning to bloom. One thing that can be challenging for many people in spring is experiencing seasonal discomforts. Seasonal discomforts are a result of the body reacting to foreign substances in the environment such as pollen, pet dander, dust or bee venom. Your eyes may water and you may reach for tissues just thinking about it! Seasonal discomforts are common in the transitions of one season to the next, such as winter turning into spring. IMG_3929IMG_3930

Eating natural foods with natural fats, lots of vitamin C, and sea salt can be a positive support for the body when trying to decrease seasonal discomforts. Avoid refined carbohydrates (processed white flour), overeating, and foods that increase estrogen (such as soy) as estrogen promotes the release of natural histamines which can cause allergy-like symptoms such as sneezing and a runny nose.

Essential oils can be used to help remedy common seasonal discomforts. The top three recommended essential oils for this are: Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint essential oils. These three oils are known for their ability to support clear airways, ease breathing and promote a healthy inflammatory response when combined.

There are several easy ways to enjoy these oils. Many families like to create a roller bottle blend for convenience to rub on the feet every morning or night at times when seasonal attacks may be most frequent. To make this blend put equal drops of these oils (6 drops each) in a glass roller bottle and fill the rest of the way up with fractionated coconut oil. The combination of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint can be used on children, even young children and infants, especially if combined with a carrier oil.

A drop of these oils can also be applied topically under the nose, diffused (smells wonderful day or night!), or ingested in an empty veggie capsule with 1-3 drops each of above oils. These three oils can also be ingested by adding 1-3 drops each to shot glass of juice or water, swish 10-20 seconds in the mouth and swallow. For children ages 2 and up add 1 drop each to a spoonful of local honey for children (for adults you can do 2-3 drops each).

It is only recommended to take oils internally if your oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. It’s important to know that not all essential oils are created equally and the essential oil industry is not regulated. Many oils you find at the store and online are often synthetic, have additives (and pesticides in them) and will not improve your well-being. A bottle of oil only has to have 10% of the actual essential oil in it to be considered “100% pure”. The oils I trust and use are the only ones that are 3rd party tested for purity and potency and can be taken internally.

Because of their potency, these essential oils are capable of offering immediate relief and wellness benefits. They are a powerful and safe way to protect yourself from seasonal and environmental elements and to relieve seasonal attacks. Your senses will calm down and you will be able to enjoy the change of the season even more freely.
