Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

The allergy trio is a recommended combination of essential oils that can support your body to avoid reactions to allergens. I've used Lavender, Peppermint, and Lemon essential oils daily and have been able to avoid what have been problematic allergies.

For example, cats give me hives, make my eyes swell, and cause my throat to itch. It's an ugly allergy, but the allergy trio has helped me manage and avoid any reaction to cats.

I actually drink the Peppermint and Lemon in water daily, and I diffuse or apply Lavender. I don't have to use them all the same way to get all the benefits. I usually just use a couple of drops of each.

If I have an allergic reaction and get red, itchy eyes, I like to use one drop of Lavender neat (undiluted). I rub it on the eye bone, avoiding the eye itself. This may make my eyes water at first, but I've had great and quick results.

My father-in-law had been suffering from severe eye allergies. However, he has found relief using Lavender essential oil. Even special eye drops recommended by the doctor had not aided him nearly as well.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."Demodex blepharitis is a common but overlooked external eye disease. The pathogenesis of Demodex blepharitis in eliciting ocular surface inflammation has been further clarified. The modified eyelash sampling and counting method makes it easier and more accurate to diagnose Demodex infestation. Tea tree oil shows promising potential to treat Demodex blepharitis by reducing Demodex counts with additional antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory actions."Link

3."[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link

5."The lemon-based nasal spray [containing Lemon, Melaleuca Quinquenervia, and Ravintsara] was a good alternative to conventional medicine for the treatment of perennial [pet dander, dust mites] and seasonal allergic and vasomotor rhinopathy."Link
