Allergy Relief - Best Essential Oils to Use and Why!

The following article presents the very latest information on allergy relief products. If you have a particular interest in allergy relief products, then this informative article is required reading.

I trust that what you've read so far has been informative. The following section should go a long way toward clearing up any uncertainty that may remain.

A synergy blend of essential oils is often more effective for helping to promote symptomatic relief and healing than any single essential oil. The best pure essential oils to use in synergy for allergy relief and why, include: Blue Tansy, Spikenard, Rosemary and Lemongrass.

BLUE TANSY (Tanacetum anuum ~ Moroccan Blue Chamomile) - Blue Tansy's delightful scent is warmly herbaceous with a complex sweetness that to me is reminiscent of apples with a hint of spice.

Everyone invariably loves the friendly and inviting scent of Blue Tansy!

Blue Tansy is a natural antihistamine with anti-allergic properties. Research shows Blue Tansy to be especially effective for allergy relief. It is often used in blends for asthma and emphysema due to its bronchio-dilating effect.

Its strong analgesic properties help reduce any swelling or itching associated with allergies and its rapid anti-inflammatory action immediately calms your nervous system.

SPIKENARD ( Nardostachys jatamansi ) - A tranquilizer and relative of valerian Narde has the most powerful sedative action in aromatherapy and is helpful for calming the mind and easing anxiety and stress.

Spikenard’s sedative action helps calm allergic reactions and reduces inflammation of tissues. Its regulating action may help promote respiration for freer, easier breathing.

ROSEMARY, Cineole ( Rosmarinus Officinalis ct. cineole ) - A fresh, clean, powerful and herbaceous aroma that's reminiscent of Eucalyptus. Rosemary cineole's fragrance is strongly penetrating to the senses.

Rosemary Cineole stimulates blood circulation, has a clearing and energizing effect when inhaled and is helpful for treating respiratory conditions, including allergies.

Inhalation of Rosemary in moderation will clear blocked sinus and relieve stuffy nose and sinus congestion.

LEMONGRASS ( Cymbopogon citratus ) - A pleasant, fresh lemon aroma Lemongrass has a regulating and tonic action on the body. Its vasodilating, anti-inflammatory, and sedative properties help relieve congestion, promote freer, easier breathing and relieve inflamed bronchial tubes and sinus passageways.

PLEASE NOTE: There are many cheap, synthetic copies of aromatic oils, but these are not recommended for therapeutic use. For best results purchase the highest quality oils you can possibly find. Use certified organic essential oils, or oils that have been tested and are pesticide free.

Holistic MindBody Therapy, including pure essential oils, are gentle, noninvasive complementary forms of health care for balancing and synchronizing your body, mind and spirit and a natural, safe and effective way to enhance your health and well-being. Holistic health care may produce satisfying results where other methods have failed. Please consult with your physician regarding serious health concerns and do not attempt to self diagnose.
