While most people look forward to spring, there are some who fear the consequences it brings. When flowers start to grow out of ground and burst, they cause sneezing and even high fever to many folks. The only option people who suffer from allergies have is to get a treatment, and I would recommend a natural approach.
There are many plants that have antiallergenic properties, but essential oils can alleviate the symptoms in a better manner. Oils are made with steam distillations of all those plants that have therapeutic, potent oils. Their potency makes them very effective against allergies so you should definitely try to use one of many essential oils as they have anti-inflammatory effect.
The best oils you can use against the high fever are Chamomile and Blue Tansy. They contain azuline, which is an antihistamine, and will calm you, cool you and reduce the irritation and stress you feel. We all know that irritation causes additional sneezing and itching, so you could really use a couple of drops of Chamomile or Blue Tansy essential oil.
Atlas cedar wood is another essential oil for allergies with strong anti-inflammatory and antihistamine properties. It has a woody, warm scent that will calm you down and provide relief against allergies. This essential oil is grounding, centering and strengthening. A good way to use this oil is to add several drops to a cotton cloth and then inhale it once or twice. If you can do this while you are showering, that would be even better, as the steam from the shower will carry the oil into your body.
Lavender and Eucalyptus are a great solution for nasal congestion. Most people use steam inhalation, as it is a best way to make use of these pungent oils. You should add a couple of drops of essential oil to a basin or a bowl of hot water first. Then, take a towel and put it over your head. Lean over the bowl and create a tent with the towel, so the steam from the bowl goes directly to your face. Inhale deeply and keep inhaling for several minutes. You can do this in the morning, during the day or in the evening or whenever you feel the need.
Steam inhalation will help with ear and lung congestion, so it’s best to carry essential oil with you at all times. It’s a great tool against allergies, whether you can do a steam inhalation or not. You can always directly inhale the oil by sipping a few drops on the tissue or into the palms of your hands. As long as you can inhale the oil a couple of times, you will be benefiting from its healing properties.
Some other essential oils that have good anti-allergenic properties are Tea Tree, Cardamom, Turmeric, Saro and Helichrysum. Use them to treat your body and mind, and do it regularly. It’s the best way to keep the allergies away.
