Respiratory distress from seasonal or triggered allergies are all too common. In fact, a recent study estimated that allergic rhinitis (hay fever) affects around 30% of all adults in the U.S. and as many as 40% of children, and this number is increasing each year! In fact, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America reports that allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S.
For some, the aggravation of allergies is an everyday nightmare. Allergic reactions occur when the immune system reacts to environmental triggers that are normally harmless to most other people. When this happens, the immune system recognizes a particular trigger, or allergen, as harmful and sends signals to the body to create antibodies to fight it. Reactions that occur may include inflammation of the skin, sinuses, digestive system, and/or airways.
Although not typically fatal, allergies cause a great deal of discomfort and stress to those who suffer from them. Sinus swelling, headaches, reduced energy, nasal discomfort, excessive mucus, coughing, chest pain, joint swelling, difficulty breathing, and reduced quality of sleep are just a few of the common symptoms of allergies. But what can be done to support the body in healing, alleviating symptoms, and returning life to one of joy, energy, and vitality?
In some cases, the use of essential oils can offer some relief and encourage a healthy immune response. For allergies, a combination of three properties of oils offer the best results, because they address all key facets of the allergic reaction in the body. Those are anti-allergenic, antihistamine, and steroidal (reduce inflammation). Jordan Essentials Allergy Blend offers all three properties with its carefully blended combination of Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint Essential Oils.
Frankincense is often called the “King” of essential oils because it has so many powerful constituents and can support many body systems. In this case, Frankincense is included in the Allergy Blend because of its anti-allergenic and steroidal properties. Frankincense supports healthy cell regeneration and may help reduce the body’s reaction to the allergen in question. It also has been known to be highly effective in reducing inflammation.
Lavender and Lemon Essential Oils are also added to the Jordan Essentials Allergy Blend for their antihistamine qualities, in addition to the many other benefits these oils offer. Lavender calms and soothes the inflammation while Lemon stimulates opening of the airways.
Peppermint Essential Oil contains menthol, a stimulating constituent that helps open airways, reduce inflammation, stimulate blood flow, and encourage healthy communication between the cells.
Jordan Essentials Allergy Blend is also a wonderful option for non-allergy situations, too! Not only does it smell amazing, it is a great choice for additional support any time you want to support deep breathing and healthy airways. Singers love using this blend before performing, athletes love this blend for excellent oxygen flow during a workout, and moms love this blend to help their loved ones breathe better at night while sleeping during cold and flu season. Jordan Essentials Allergy Blend works beautifully when paired with Jordan Essentials Immune Blend and/or Jordan Essentials Resistance Blend during those times when you’re really feeling under the weather and need some additional immune support.
Or, just enjoy using it for no other reason than that it smells so good!
Jordan Essentials Allergy Blend comes in a convenient, perfectly diluted Roll On or Spray and is recommended for ages 3 and up. Consult your doctor or healthcare professional if symptoms persist or worsen, and be sure to double check with your doctor before using if you are pregnant, nursing, or taking any medications.
