Lavender is a popular essential oil because of its many benefits. It may help soothe your symptoms during allergy season thanks to its ability to calm and reduce inflammation. One study concluded that the essential oil prevents allergic inflammation as well as the enlargement of mucous cells.
A Blend of Sandalwood and Frankincense

To use these blended oils, mix with an almond carrier oil to dilute their strength and diffuse into the air.
Eucalyptus oil is known as an anti-inflammatory and may help you with nasal and chest congestion. The cooling sensation you experience while breathing it in may also help fatigue, headaches, and seasonal migraines.
Peppermint essential oil reduces internal and external inflammation, opens the nasal passages, and invigorates the mind in order to promote focus. You’ll be able to breathe easier by diffusing the oil or even applying it on your skin after it’s diluted with a carrier oil. Combining peppermint with lavender and lemon oils creates an effective and soothing allergy relief combination as well.
