We asked our Instagram followers to share their tips for people suffering from seasonal allergies. Here's a roundup of the responses so far: 

  • jamie.ferrell Eat raw local honey every day!
  • essentialrevolution Young Living essential oil combo of Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint oils are gentle and awesome at helping keep pesky allergy symptoms at bay!💧💧💧 Together in the diffuser, in a roller w your favorite carrier oil, or a spray bottle with h20 and a splash of witch hazel... Cheers to enjoying Spring! 🌈🌷🌱🌼🍃
  • liztencic Start every day with a hot shot made from 50 ml hot water, 10 ml nettle powder and a dash of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. The sooner you start the better it works. A month before you expect the pollen season to begin is a good time to start.
  • centronaturopatico Nettles, quercetin, vit C, neti pot
  • erica_brooke711 Arbonne’s 30 days to healthy living (clean eating) challenge! Helped me immensely this year!
  • jeffjstroud Still using doTERRA Breathe blend as well as OnGuard. TriEase is another doTERRA product great for seasonal issues, a blend of lavender, peppermint, and lemon in gel caps.
  • simplyoursocietyblog Locally sourced honey! I add it to my tea in the evenings every night and it made a huge difference for me this year when allergy season came around.
  • cincycoffeemom Roller with lavender, lemon and peppermint essential oils with coconut oil (as a carrier oil). Fennel may be a good addition for the congestion.
  • iamamonster I am allergic to birch trees, grasses and pollens. I took Claritin every day from April to September, until I started using lavender essential oil in 2014. Haven't taken a pill since!! 😁 All I do is keep a little essential oil bottle in my pocket and put one drop on my nose and under my eyes. Lavender is anti-inflammatory and takes the itchy eye feeling, the sneezing, and the runny nose symptoms.
  • reviverecuperacion turmeric shots, rosemary cream and oil, golden milk or cayenne pepper 👏❤🌻
  • dawnsbodyshop Using a sinus Nettie at night and after being outdoors or around allergens
