There is nothing like the first signs of spring, the birds are chirping and the garden is returning to life.  We find ourselves outdoors and ready to explore nature … until the allergies kick in. Our eyes begin to water and suddenly we are unable to breathe clearly. Welcome to allergy season! Most of us have been there, we immediately reach out for a nose spray or an antihistamine medication. This is our way of coping with spring, and most of the time it works. However; there is an alternative, more natural way of handling allergies and the occasional cold.

Essential oils can help regulate allergy symptoms via inhalation, topical application, and aromatic use. Aromahead recommends several possible blends for allergy relief, including both eucalyptus and tea tree essential oils. These oils are both particularly effective when dealing with allergy symptoms that manifest as nasal discomfort and an itchy, runny nose.

Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata) has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, making it easy to understand why this essential oil can aid with allergens. Because eucalyptus is also an expectorant, it can help ease congestion due to pollen exposure or a common cold. The scent of eucalyptus is fresh and medicinal, which I find instantly refreshing.
