I have focused on posting different essential oils that are helpful for seasonal discomfort but how exactly do these essential oils help?
The first thing to understand is how the immune system works. When someone has an allergic reaction to a substance (pollen, grass, food…etc) it begins in the immune system. The allergen tricks your immune system into thinking that there in an invader in your body. In response to the allergen, the immune system will overreact and start to product Immunoglobulin E antibodies. These newly formed antibodies will travel to the cells and release histamine and other chemicals, which in turn causes an allergic reaction (congestion, hives, itchiness…etc).
Common allergens include:
- Insect stings
- Animal dander
These allergens will trigger symptoms in the nose, throat, lungs, ears, sinuses and lining of the stomach or on the skin.
Inflammation in the body is one of the results of an allergic response. Essential oils have an amazing ability to help alleviate inflammation and boost the immune system. There are specific essential oils that are believed to help detoxify the body and alleviate unwanted pathogens. Essential oils can help reduce our sensitivity to outside sources and help prevent our immune system from overreacting when faced with a harmless intruder. Some exceptional essential oils even work to relieve respiratory conditions and increase sweat and urination — helping with the elimination of toxins.
