Lavender has been such a blessing in giving relief to my allergy symptoms, and those of my family, but we also use Peppermint in conjunction with it.

I now use Lavender under my nose and over my sinuses, when I notice my allergy symptoms starting, placing just a swipe of the oil from the bottle directly under my nostrils every few hours, or as needed.

My 15-year-old son has constant allergies, which is helped greatly by using Lavender in conjunction with Peppermint. Sometimes he will put a drop of Peppermint in his glass of water, which helps open is nostrils up, and is able to breathe so much easier. In addition, he sleeps better at night when he uses his Peppermint. He has begun purchasing his own oils for his personal use!

I also will apply the oils to the sinus reflex points on the feet, for penetration into the body in that way.

When our allergies are very bad, we put a drop of Peppermint into a hot steaming mug of water. The vapors penetrate quickly, helping us breathe better. This also works great for a bad cold or cough!

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: allergic rhinnitis, runny nose, sniffles.
