The allergies are coming, THE ALLERGIES ARE COMING!!! Every spring, Oklahoma has a lovely way of increasing the outdoor allergies for what seems like EVERYONE. Luckily in our home we have a toxic-free option to turn to! This multipurpose trio is super powerful together but individually they are pretty amazing too...if I do say so myself.
Here is how we use Young Living's LAVENDER, PEPPERMINT, & LEMON essential oils not only during allergy season, but year round in our house!
Lavender: Doesn't pretty much everyone just LOVE lavender? It's one of those oils that is calming, refreshing, soothing, & just makes you go "ahhhhhhhhhh!" It is so versatile too. One time I was cooking dinner and for some reason decided to grab my pan without a potholder...needless to say I quickly let go, might have said a few choice words, & immediately thought, let me grab one of my oils instead of running it under boring ol' cool tap water. I immediately put LAVENDER oil on it. Definitely one of those "ahhhhhh" moments, but not in a relaxation way, but in a THANK GOD-instant relief, that feels superbly-amazing way! I was just expecting it to feel better, but much to my surprise the next morning the proof of my burn was almost completely gone to boot! Lavender is also commonly used for calming and relaxing environment, skin support, & healthier hair.
Peppermint: This might just be one of my all time favorite oils but donut tell my other oils ;D This one has saved me SO. MANY. TIMES. Headache? Peppermint oil on the temples and back of my neck. Upset stomach? Peppermint on the tummy. Needed a quick pick-me-up? Open and inhale. It is literally a lifesaver! Peppermint is also commonly used for circulatory support, freshen breath, & digestion support.
Lemon: Anyone else have a dad that always says Limon so now you always say Limon, okay good, I'll tell my friend she isn't alone...but in all seriousness, LEMON! This guy is MULTIPURPOSE and absolutely MAGNIFICENT. We have used lemon oil in so many ways! One time my husband had a bad case of the eating too many jalapeños. He was in so much discomfort he wasn't happy sitting, laying down, walking, nothing. He was borderline man-cold status but I looked into my trusty EO Reference Guide and said, it says to drink water with some drops of lemon in it! He said, "I will try ANYTHING!" So I got a glass of water going, added 3-4 drops of YLEO Lemon and told him bottoms up. INSTANT RELIEF, just like that! He could not believe it. I was ecstatic to not only add another win in my oil book but have a happy hubby too! I've also been known to use Lemon more than once for cleaning sticker/gum/bandaid residue/etc off of surfaces and people! I'm telling you, this simple oil is so incredible. Lemon can also be used for (but not limited to) happy and uplifting environment, energy, nasal support, & digestion support.
