What to do with Hay Fever? Essential oils to the rescue!

Relieve hay fever symptoms

The sun is shining and the temperatures are rising slowly. Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming and trees have begun to show their green leaves. Spring and summer are here! For most people it’s an exciting time of the year, but for others it means one thing: hay fever season has started.

Snif snif… it’s that time again. It is of course never fun to have hay fever symptoms. A stuffy nose, or a runny nose. Sneezing, tickling cough, watery eyes, itching, fatigue, poor sleep... It's really no fun! It feels like some kind of extra long-term cold that gets worse when you get outside.

Reduce hay fever symptoms with essential oil

Unfortunately we can't solve the problem for you, but we can make it more bearable! With essential oils and your Smellacloud you can soften and release the symptoms of hay fever. This way, you can use the power of nature to fight your hay fever ailments! By diffusing essential oil you won’t only enjoy a wonderful scent, you will also feel noticeably better in your own skin!

An allergic reaction is caused by airborne allergens. In the case of hay fever, it usually concerns the pollen, but you can also get an allergic reaction from, for example, animal hairs, feathers and dust mites. Think of carpet fabrics, a nice carpet, the curtains, your duvet and towels. These substances spread more easily when there is little moisture in the air and can cause irritation to your airways, eyes, throat and skin.

By diffusing the following essential oils you can make the hay fever period a bit more bearable. The soothing effect on the respiratory tract and the antibacterial and antiseptic action will have a relieving effect:

Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Lemon, Rosemary, Pinetree, Lavender, Forest Walk, Fresh Breeze and Coniferous Forest.
