Aromatherapy for Allergy and Hay Fever

hay-fever-camomile

There are two major oils helpful with allergies in general:  But make sure you are not allergic to any of them. Chamomile seems to be more effective, than Melissa.
The easiest way to use is to put 1-2 drops of oil on a handkerchief or tissue and to sniff whenever it needed during the day.
Facial massage with any of these oils can also be very helpful, it often decreases the severity of the allergic reaction. Never use essential oils undiluted, so mix in 1 teaspoon of olive oil 1 drop of essential oil and do the massage.
If you do not have the time for a massage, a bath with essential oils can also be very soothing. Use in a fullbath 3-4 drops and in a footbath 1-2 drops of essential oils. It is a very pleasent hay fever treatment.
