This spring has been one of the worst weather-wise in the Midwest, both for enjoying outdoor activities and for those who suffer from seasonal discomfort.  I tend to suffer from seasonal threats in the spring and in the fall, and this year has been worse than years past.  I have also heard from many friends and family who are having issues this year, even when they haven’t in the past.  So, I will share some of what I am trying in hopes it will help you and/or your loved ones.

TriEase Softgels 

doTERRA’s TriEase Softgels contain an equal ratio of Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint essential oils to support a healthy respiratory system and help your body deal with seasonal threats. You can also make your won natural remedy by adding 1-2 drops of each oil to an empty veggie capsule. However, I like the convenience of the premade supplements from doTERRA.  Making your own is an option if you run out, or if you have the 3 oils and want to try this combo before purchasing the TriEase Softgels.

You can try taking one each morning, and if that’s not enough support you can add a second softgel in the evening.  Lemon oil is high in a constituent limonene which may support a healthy immune response in experimental research. Lavender is known for its balancing and calming  effects when ingested.  Peppermint supports healthy respiratory function and clear breathing. TriEase softgels are great when on the run, traveling, or spending time outdoors.

Breathe Essential Oil 

My second go-to for minimizing the effects of seasonal threats is the Breathe line of products.  Breathe essential oil is great in your diffuser at night, and applied topically (dilute for sensitive skin, children and the elderly) to the bottoms of the feet, chest and under your nose.  This blend is known as the respiratory blend and was designed to promote clear airways, easy breathing and help with a restful night’s sleep.  It also comes in a handy vapor stick that is great for using on-the-go,  My friend who is a long-distance runner keeps this in her sports bra on longer runs.  You can also try Breathe Respiratory drops when threats are high to soothe dry, irritated airways.  Plus, I love the taste of these Breathe drops!  You can purchase all three of these Breathe products in this discounted combo kit.  If you want to add in the TriEase softgels, here is a discounted kit.

I hope these tips help you enjoy spring and ease into a fun and relaxing summer!
