Achoo! Natural Ways to Defeat Seasonal Sniffles

Are you tired of telling your kids to go blow their nose? Are you exhausted with the sniffles, coughs, sneezing, and watery eyes

Here are a few natural ways to find relief quickly and easily, so that you and your family can go back to enjoying the beautiful weather outdoors!

Fruits, Veggies, Nuts

Grapes, apples, oranges, tomatoes...fill up on all of these! At least one study shows fewer symptoms in children who ate more of these fruits (and nuts) on a regular basis. Although we aren't sure of the reason, we do know that what we eat has a profound effect on our overall health. Our body functions correctly, and that includes processing allergens, when it is fueled properly.

Exercise

The last thing you want to do when you feel crummy is exercise - BUT - researchers have found 30 minutes of moderate to intense exercise can drastically reduce symptoms. 

Considering most seasonal allergens are outdoors, it would serve you well to try some indoor workouts. My favorite workout instructor is Jessica Smith. Her YouTube channel has over 400 FREE workouts of various lengths, intensities, and styles. Plus she has an adorable French bulldog named Peanut that makes the videos more entertaining.

L-L-P

Lemon - Lavender - Peppermint. This trio of oils has been invaluable to so many in reduce symptoms of the seasonal ick. 

With Young Living's Vitality line of oils that can be ingested, my whole family has benefitted from taking them internally. We make our own capsules with the oils plus local honey. My daughter takes the trio in a spoonful of honey rather than swallowing a capsule.

The regular line of oils can also be used aromatically (e.g. in a diffuser) or topically (e.g. in a roller bottle on your skin).

We are so grateful for this natural method in particular, because this is what works for all of us.

These are just a few ways you can beat the sniffles naturally!
