I have been meaning to post this diffusing combo… but just kept forgetting. There is a sale going on though over at Rocky Mountain Oils for 15% off a good number of oils… and two of the oils they have on sale are oils I diffuser for allergies. I have pet allergies. Cat, dog, horse (although I don’t have a horse, when we are around horses, its bad). I also have had some spring allergies this year (boo!). So instead of surviving on Benedryl I have found that diffusing 3 specific oils throughout the day, helps to keep my allergies at bay (that totally rhymed).
So here is what I do.
I diffuse the following oils:
(for 8 ounces of water) – this diffuses for at least 3-4 hours. Just in case you are curious. You don’t really need to diffuse for more than an hour at a time any way. A lot of people think you have to diffuse all day for it to take affect. That isn’t true. I never diffuse for longer than what an 8 ounce amount of water provides. Only time I would is if I had a sick child with the croup or cold. So for this combo below you could diffuse it for an hour, shut the diffuser off if you want, then cut it back on later on in the day. A little bit goes a long way with these oils. Don’t let the prices scare you away. I’ve had the same bottle of peppermint for almost a year now.
If this is to strong, you can use less drops of oil. I use the CLOUD Aroma Diffuser(I have both the small and large one. I love both) It fills our larger living space… so I find a few extra drops makes for a better strength smell in diffusing.
You can also apply these to the bottom of your feet or even just breathe them in using an inhaler wick. I buy my inhalers from a local shop but Amazon has them too.
All of those oils are staples IMO. If you are new to Essential Oils, get those 3. I use them often. If you want you can read my more informative Essential Oil post, that explains some of the other benefits of those 3 oils HERE.
Again the sale is OVER HERE.
The coupon code you use is SPRING15 – for 15% off the following oils (good through MAY 1st): tea tree, orange, pine, cypress, lavender, eucalyptus radiata, citronella, peppermint, juniper berry, oregano, thyme, and cinnamon bark.

(also for those curious why 1 of my bottles looks different. RMO had a label change last year, so my peppermint bottle has their OLDER label on it. Its the same company tho)
