Recently I've added a new all natural treatment to our allergy protocol and I am hoping that we'll have good results this spring. It's a combination of products from Young Living that is commonly referred to as the Allergy Bomb.
It's equal parts Lemon, Peppermint and Lavender essential oils. You can combine them in a vegetable capsule, or take them in water, but for the boys I prefer to add it to the diffuser and let it run bedside while they read a book. You can also add a few drops to your hands, rub together and then inhale.
The oils can also be applied topically, but I never apply oils "neat" to my boys as they have sensitive skin. Instead, I usually add them to a base of olive oil (coconut oil is supposed to be amazing for this purpose, however my younger son is incredibly allergic for coconut so for us, that's out as an option.)
By the way, you'll also want to be careful with topical application of Lemon right now as that oil is "photosensitive." When applied to the skin before sun exposure they can cause a rash or a burn on location. **Oils applied to the feet and under covered areas of your body should be fine.**
While I know the worst is still to come since things are just now starting to bloom, already this has been a welcome relief for my two sniffly itchy boys.
