Essential Oils for Hay Fever
☀️The sun has started to shine - Whilst that’s extremely exciting, and the sun is always welcome- it also means that the hay fever season is here. If you’re one of the 1 in 5 unlucky sufferers of this allergy, then do not fear this year; read on to find out how essential oils can help!
What Is Hay Fever?
🌻 Hay Fever is actually ‘allergic rhinitis’ which is caused by pollen or dust that inflames the mucous membranes of the eyes and nose, causing runny noses, sneezing, and watery or itchy eyes. It sends your immune system into chaos, reacting to plants and dust by trying to push them out of our bodies. With tree pollen and rapeseed about to flower, it’s a good time to start thinking about preventative measures. Whilst there are lots of antihistamine products available from the medical world to help treat the symptoms, the uncomfortable and irritating sneezing, sniffling and weeping can also be relieved with 'natural' aromatherapy.
