Spring has very nearly sprung. It’s right around the corner. And as amazing as it will feel to have the coldness dissipate and see freshly blooming vegetation, the right essential oil blends can make life even better in springtime.
Spring – Not All It’s Cracked up to Be!
Yes, spring is a lovely time of year. And by the time it rolls around, we are more than ready for it. What you may not be ready for, however, is for your world (and every corner of your home) to be covered in that yellow pollen. Along with spring comes dreaded pollen, there’s little you can do to stop it.
Many an individual has had their springtime wellness ruined by the effects of springtime pollen. Some developed allergies later in life, some have struggled with them since they were young.
The Worst Pollen Offenders
Not all plants produce the same level of pollen. Here is a list of the worst offenders:
- Arizona cypress
- Pigweed or tumbleweed
- Mountain cedar
And according to some, one of the worst offenders is pine pollen. It not only aggravates your sinuses but deposits a disgusting yellow film on everything. Now let’s take a look at some ways to combat the effects of spring’s pollen.
The Tremendous Trio
You’ve likely heard of the fantastic five and the dynamic duo. Today we’re going to introduce you to the tremendous trio. These three essential oils work together to make spring beautiful once again.
The essential oils here are lavender, peppermint, and lemon. For some people, it’s hard to believe that just a few little bottles of oil could make that much difference when it comes to suffering the hideous effects of pollen allergies. But you never know until you try! So let’s take a look at exactly what to do with that tremendous trio.
Note: Just to shake things up a bit, if you’d like, you can add Copiaba to the mix. Now you have the fabulous four!
Diffusing Essential Oils
This is where the peppermint comes in. It makes your house smell incredible with its uplifting scent, but using it in a diffuser before bed and while you sleep helps promote the springtime wellness we have been referring to.
Roller Bottles And Essential Oils
This is great for on the road, in your desk, in the car, etc. These little roller bottles come in handy.
Make a mixture that contains 10 drops of each oil in the fabulous four (or the tremendous trio) and put it in a small roller bottle. Roll them under your nose, at the bridge of your nose, behind your ears, at the base of your neck, etc. Do your best to keep this mixture away from your eyes, however, because that’s a sensitive area.
Sinus Rinse Neti Pot Mixture
We are going to introduce one more mixture, and that is thieves oil. This is the perfect addition to your Neti pot kit.
Thieves oil is a powerful combination of rosemary, eucalyptus radiata, cinnamon, lemon, and clove (recipes can vary). It has a spicy, rich aroma. Along with the salt package that likely came with your Neti pot kit (there are variations of this on the market today), simply add one drop of your thieves oil. Add the recommended distilled water and your sinuses will begin clearing after about 30 minutes with your Neti pot.
