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.

I have had terrible seasonal allergies (pollens in April/May, and ragweed in September/ October) since I was a child. In the last several years, I've had to become very skilled at titrating my allergy medications to prevent side effects from causing more problems. My everyday, year round medicine was Mucinex D and I would change out to Zyrtec D when allergy symptoms started. If they got really bad I would take D Allergy (always had to be careful not to take this for too long or I would develop sinus infections from the thickened secretions that didn't drain).

A friend from work introduced me to Young Living Peppermint this summer. Inhaling it from a few drops in my hands was so effective, I was sold. I did some investigating on this site and found testimonials for using Lavender for allergies. I started taking about 10-15 drops of Lavender in a capsule in the morning when my hay fever symptoms started up this fall. I have had minimal allergy symptoms this season (and it's been a bad one for many people here).

I also haven't had any problems with dry mouth, sinus pressure/ infections like I used to have if I wasn't careful with my other antihistamines. Love these oils!

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: sinus, antihistamine, congestion, mucus.
