Peppermint for Seasonal Allergy Relief
Peppermint Essential Oil has analgesic (pain relief) and anti-inflammatory properties and has been used for centuries to relive nasal congestion. For some individuals, the use of peppermint oil has eliminated the need for allergy shots.
Topically: Apply 1 drop of Peppermint Essential Oil to the base of the neck 2 times/day. You can also dilute peppermint in Olive Oil or other carrier oil and apply around the nostrils (If applied at full strength, this oil may be too strong and sting the sensitive tissue of the nostrils)
Diffuse: Diffuse Peppermint Essential Oil by the bedside and throughout the day.
Inhalation: Apply 1-2 drops of Peppermint to the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and cup them over your nose. Inhale deeply 4-6 breaths.
