Although outdoor allergies seem to hit harder in the the fall, allergy season in Kentuckiana seems to be year round. This particular ragweed season looks to be exceptionally rough. Many of my clients are dealing with post-nasal drip, eye irritation, scratchy throat, hive reactions, and sinus pressure/swelling and are looking to over-the-counter sinus and allergy medicines for relief. But many of these meds can have many unwanted side effects ranging from drowsiness, dry nasal passages, nosebleeds, or jitteriness.
This is why I love promoting essential oils. The oils I work with do not produce side effects, and can be very beneficial in treating allergies and sinus issues alone or when combined with a medication regimen.
Some of the oils offered at Z Salon have anti-allergenic properties, antihistamine advantages, can reduce swelling, improve breathing, relieve headaches and support the immune system to prevent your allergies from turning into a full blown sinus infection.
At Z Salon I can customize a blend of oils into a roller ball applicator which is convenient for carrying at all times to roll on temples, head, chest etc. for instant relief. Another option is a diffuser blend which is an undiluted 5ml bottle that can be used in a home essential oil diffuser. It can also be used as a steam inhalation, which is wonderfully effective for anything respiratory related. Another option great for respiratory needs is a bath soak. A small amount of the salt blend can be used at home with a normal amount of Epsom salts to speed whole body healing.
In fact, there are a multitude of ways essential oils can be used, and the properties of many of the respiratory oils have the added benefit of offering pain relief for other aches. Actually the options are endless. Give me a call at Z Salon to set up a personal Aromatherapy Consultation. I will discuss your symptoms to see how essential oils can best help you and then custom blend a mixture and application to provide you with the greatest relief. The cost of a personal consultation appointment is only $50, but you can then apply that fee toward any essential oil purchase. Product prices range from $10 to $35.
So don’t fight this allergy season alone. Let me show you all the benefits essential oils have to offer. Call today to set up an appointment or visit us online.
