A Natural Approach to Seasonal Allergies!
I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy.
Today I wanted to share my favorite ways to combat seasonal allergies and nosebleeds. I figured this would be a great topic because I know I am not the only one that has family members that suffer every time spring hits and the pollen and cottonwood start flying through the air. I have 3 children but 2 who suffer from outside allergies. My son who was tested when he was young is literally allergic to everything outside! For him, this is a bummer as he is an outside type of guy. My youngest however has never been tested for allergies but shows signs that she may have them also. So how do we combat allergies? Well first of all I love essential oils! We use them topically, internally, and diffuse them. Now here is where I will insert my.......

Ok, let's get back to it...... I use the Doterra brand of essential oils. After doing my research I feel this brand is the purest and I have not had any issues with them. I do have a post on why I chose Doterra if you would like to hear the full reason. So, we use a blend of Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint. I diffuse this in my diffuser and also put this blend in a roller bottle along with fractionated coconut oil, to rub on our necks and wrists. We also love the Breathe oil for when we get congested and all stuffed up. We diffuse this oil and also rub it on our chest. Unfortionalty with dryer weather comes dry noses and nose bleeds. For this, we try to rub a small amount of Neosporin or Vaseline to the insides of our nose, just a little bit. We also use a saline spray to keep our nasal passages moist to prevent drying out. If we do get nose bleeds then we rub Lavendar on the bridge or our nose to help stop the bleeding. Also just taking a break from the heat and allergies outside is a must! Here you can check out my Doterra essential oil website Doterra. We also love using the Aim Companies All-natural supplements. We love Barley Life and Coco Leaf Greens for just overall immune and whole-body health. My kids drink Coco Leaf Greens in milk with a straw it's like chocolate milk! You can check out the Aim Products here: Aim Companies. I know that spring and summer is a great time of year. We are all excited to be outside but then we suffer the consequences of allergies. I try to do what I can that is all-natural but sometimes we have to take allergy medicine. I was using Zyrtec but then my homeopathic doctor told me that I should switch to Claritin instead. He also recommended we try Nettles and Curcitin which I have not tried yet. That will be my next purchase. I hope this post is helpful and if you have any suggestions please let me know as this is an ongoing struggle in our home, and I would love to hear other remedies! God Bless and Happy Summertime!
