Seasonal Allergies and Essential Oils

As we come up on the fall season many people experience seasonal allergies. Essential oils can help!

Update 7/16/18: I had nearly forgotten I had this site until I got another subscriber recently, so decided I’d better revisit it.

Many people, especially aromatherapists (of which I am one), will say there is no reason this should work or that it doesn’t work. I’m here to tell you that it does work for some people including me–just like Avon’s Skin So Soft works as a bug repellent for many people though no one can really explain why. Because you can’t explain or prove something, does that mean it can’t or doesn’t work?

The fact is lavender and peppermint both have antihistaminic properties and lemon is a mucolytic, so there actually is a basis for this formula working. For me, it does. I have several mild allergies to the things I live around, such as: grass, aspen trees, cottonwood trees, sage. This means I constantly have post nasal drip to the point I can hardly swallow sometimes. The allergist told me to use Flonase or Zyrtec everyday. You can click on those names to see the possible side effects.

I decided I would rather go with the following blend of essential oils that, if used correctly, have nearly zero side effects. Those could be nausea or “essential oil burp”, which though not pleasant are not dangerous either.

This is how you would use them correctly: Put 2 drops each of lavender, lemon, and peppermint in a gelatin capsule, topped off with a vegetable oil, then take internally. I only use one per day in the morning, though sometimes as I’m going to bed at night too, so I can breathe and swallow freely. I find that if I take them with food and water that I don’t have any problem with burping them or with nausea.

There is some concern about the effects on the liver from using essential oils internally over a long period of time. I have used these for a long time, rather than the medications previously listed, and in all my lab results from physicals, my liver is in fine shape. No one can transpose their experience onto anyone else. This has been my experience and I appreciate having a more natural and safe alternative to control my allergy symptoms.

The following, from my previous post, is true:

I hear it works best if you start this regimen before allergy season starts, one capsule a day, then add more per day as needed throughout the season. If you wait until they start it may take a few days for the oils to start taking effect. Let me know how it works for you.

~Gelatin capsules can be bought at your local pharmacy or health food store. You can also buy this formula ready-made from some essential oil suppliers.


Essential Oils –

What are they?

They are pure extracts from various plant parts: bark, leaves, seeds, citrus peels, flowers, etc. They are typically extracted by steam distillation. They are not lipids (fats) so they are not greasy, even though they are called oils. They can be used topically, aromatically, or internally. In any of the three ways they enter the bloodstream and circulate through the body. Oils that contain sesquiterpenes can cross the blood/brain barrier so they are effective for emotional and psychological issues.

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to improve wellness in body, mind, and spirit.

Essential oils are highly concentrated. One drop of Peppermint is equivalent to about 27 cups of Peppermint herbal tea. They naturally contain a wide array of chemical constituents which gives them their active therapeutic properties. They can be calming, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, fungicidal, antiviral, sedative, invigorating–to name just a few. They have no dangerous side effects (unless ingested in very large amounts) and most people are not allergic to them in any way.

Always dilute your essential oils before application when you are a beginner. Some essential oils are very strong, or “hot”, for instance Clove, Oregano & Cinnamon, so should be diluted even more with a vegetable, nut, or seed oil before using on the skin. Never use mineral oil or lotions containing it since they prevent essential oils from absorbing as they should. Mineral oil blocks your pores and also blocks the absorption of fat soluble Vitamins – A, D, E, K, and CoQ10.

A very good place to use essential oils is on the bottom of the feet–especially for infants, children, and the elderly & frail. The skin there is quite tough, yet there are many blood vessels and capillaries so the oils absorb, quickly enter the blood stream and circulate throughout the body. That is why you can put Peppermint on a child’s feet who has a fever and the fever will come down within 5-10 minutes. Plus you can reapply if the fever does not come down enough. It would be very difficult to overdose on essential oils.

The most important thing to remember about essential oils is that “Quality is everything!!!” This point cannot be stressed enough. This is one case in which a cheaper essential oil is usually just that, cheap (low quality, impure, lacking essential components).

The first criteria is that an essential oil is certified to be pure. It should have no contaminants including: pesticides, other essential oils, synthetic ingredients, vegetable oil, foreign plant components, etc. The only real way to know this is through testing, which many companies do not perform due to cost. If it is certified pure then it is even better than organic, which only certifies that the plant was grown according to organic criteria, but has no guarantee beyond that.

The second criteria is that the essential oil is certified to be therapeutic grade. This means that the natural chemical constituents are there and in the proper ratios to meet the accepted standard for that particular essential oil. This means you can count on that oil to act in the body as expected and be effective. If an oil has been grown, harvested, or distilled under less than ideal circumstances it is likely that it will not meet this criteria. Also, if it has been diluted with a vegetable oil, extended with another essential oil, or a synthetic oil – then it will definitely not meet this criteria and you cannot know what to expect from it: how or if it will perform, if it will be effective at all, and it may even be harmful. Again, testing is the only sure way to know.

I am one of two Registered Aromatherapists in Idaho which means I successfully completed an approved course of study in essential oils then qualified for and passed the national exam administered by the Aromatherapy Registration Council, http://www.ptcny.net/clients/ARC/RA/Public/Search.aspx . To contact me: eden@teamclark.net

I have used many different brands of essential oils and was always concerned about finding the highest-quality oils to use and suggest for people. I finally found a company that tests their oils several times by hand and in the laboratory before they are packaged for sale and certifies them to be pure and therapeutic grade. They do this through independent laboratories. They will reject any batch of essential oil that does not meet the standard. Now I have peace of mind in using them for myself, on my family and in giving and selling them to my friends and clients. These CPTG – Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are sold by  dōTERRA Intl, LLC. Visit this website (see the link on this page under Essential Oils) to see the full catalog, learn more about them, and to order: http://www.learnessentialoils.com/

You do not have to pay retail prices for these oils. To get the biggest discount, 25%, enroll as an Independent Product Consultant (IPC). You pay an initial $35 fee to be an IPC and a yearly renewal of $25 at which time you receive a free 15 ml Peppermint valued at $20. So, in essence, it costs $5 to renew.  There is no obligation to buy or sell. If you decide to join you would honor me by going through my website, http://www.learnessentialoils.com/, or use my member number, 10370, in the “Enroller” and “Sponsor” boxes when filling out the form. Thanks so much!

You can participate in the Loyalty Rewards Program (LRP) also. This is the smartest way to buy essential oils because you earn free product every time you order and the reward increases up to 30% back at the 13 month mark and thereafter. You only have to order 50 PV (Point Value) each month and essential oils are a full PV product, example: if you pay $20 dollars for an oil, it is 20 PV. The first 3 months you order you would get 2 PV back, by the 13th month you would get back 6 PV/or $6 to spend on product, on that $20 dollar oil. You can use it like cash to buy any essential oils and products they offer.

dōTERRA  is also a great business if you’re interested. Many people are doing extremely well and have replaced  and exceeded their previous income. dōTERRA has a 65% + retention rate and is part of the “Wellness Revolution” that is taking place in the US and abroad.  dōTERRA is expected to triple it’s business in the next year. I am just getting started in running it as a business but I’m part of a great team that is very supportive and focuses on sharing the oils and educating people about them. Join our team if you want support, education, and success!!! We would love to have you!

Contact me: jen@edenoils.com with any questions concerning essential oils.

All the best!!!

Nutritional content: Sprouts are one of the most concentrated natural sources of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, trace elements, amino acids and proteins on Earth. For instance, alfalfa sprouts have as much carotene as carrots. They also contain chlorophyll. Storing sprouting seeds is a fantastic way to achieve diversity and high nutritional content in your food storage. You can have a food that is alive and fresh year round!!! Plus, they are super easy and fast to grow!!

Sprouting seeds are small and easy to store in sufficient quantities and most last at least 5 years when vacuum packed. They will last twice as long in the fridge and 4-5 times as long in the freezer. The key is that there is no moisture of any kind, including condensation. You can soak seeds directly from the freezer so you can put the rest of the seeds back immediately.

The equipment required is cheap and readily available. The basic supplies are canning jars, a top that will allow water in and out but will hold in the seeds (a clean nylon or cheesecloth held on with a ring or a cap made especially for sprouting), and the sprouting seeds.

What can you sprout? Grains, grasses, legumes. Alfalfa, beans, lentils, wheat, etc., etc. If you have it in food storage you can probably sprout and eat it. If it’s a vegetable seed you want to sprout make sure it is untreated and safe for sprouting.

Eat More Sprouts! A snack, great in stir fry, salads, for tortilla insides, unexpected on pizzas, a powerful juice source, a friend of soup, necessary on sandwiches, the breakfast of champions!

Basics of Sprouting:

Soaking: About 8 hours. Turns a dormant seed into a nutritional powerhouse.

Rinsing: 1-3 times daily. Water is the key ingredient in sprouts. Use it liberally.

Draining: Thorough draining is essential–upside down or at a 45 in the dish drainer works well. Sitting in a puddle is the most common cause of crop failure.

Air Circulation: If your sprouts can’t breathe while growing — they can die. Don’t put them in a closed cabinet.

Doneness: Some say when the sprout is at least as long as the seed or longer.

Greening: Allowing them to grow to first set of leaves. Not all sprouts are into it, nor is it necessary. Sprouts of all colors are packed with flavor and nutrition!

Cleanliness: Your seed should be clean and your sprouting device should be sterile. Wash your sprouter well between crops. Sterilize when necessary.

Storage: Fresh sprouts will keep up to 6 weeks refrigerated but fresher is better. Never refrigerate wet sprouts. You can use a salad spinner or swing them around (outside) in a dish towel before storing in an airtight container.

Find a ton of information about sprouts at sproutpeople.org, see the link. They also sell supplies–from seeds, to sprouters, to juicers.
