If you have suffered from allergies all your life, do you already know what might possibly trigger your symptoms? The symptoms of seasonal allergies include not only itchy and running eyes and noses but rashes, eczema, and other skin condition. Chances are that you already know there are some triggers that are hard to avoid. Now jump on a bike and ride through the countryside and some are hard to avoid.
COMMON CAUSES OF ALLERGY SYMPTOMS
Pollen – There are a lot of people who are actually allergic to pollen, once the pollen gets into their system, their immune system will start fighting it off even though it is harmless and this can result in various allergy symptoms.
Genetics – If someone in your family has allergies, there is a big chance that you have allergies as well. There is also a chance that the allergies will be for the exact same things. Often times allergies and sensitivities to allergens may not develop until later in years, this is likely the result of your family genetics, but it can also be your a compromised or overworked immune system (more on liver health in another article).
Exposure to Dust Particles – There are some people who immediately get an allergic reaction when they are exposed to dust. Same with the exposure of people to pollen, the exposure to dust can stimulate an allergic reaction.
Animals – Some seasonal allergy sufferers also develop sensitivity to pet and animal dander. House cats, dogs, and some farm animals can all contribute to the hypersensitive nervous systems of an allergy sufferer.
Balancing your nervous system and understanding what makes your allergies flare up will help you manage this irritating ailment and get back to enjoying the day on the road or a day home with your family. (yes bikers have families too…)
What you can do in order to help you get rid of the possible triggers of allergies is to make use of essential oils.
Essential oils are natural extractions from herbs, plants, and flowers that have been used for thousands of years and can be helpful in curbing allergic reactions. The use of essential oils can help you enjoy the outdoors and the open road during allergy season.
TOP 5 ESSENTIAL OILS FOR SEASONAL ALLERGY RELIEFPeppermint Essential Oils (Mentha piperita) – My favorite thing about peppermint oil is probably it’s smell and aroma. It is minty and this alone can help prevent an allergic reaction but what makes it even more special are the different things that it can do to your body too. It’s cooling and anti-inflammatory properties can help get rid of some digestive and respiratory problems that many people suffering from. With the use of this essential oil, you can be sure that you will be able to feel relieved and breathe easily. – Apply peppermint essential oil on the back of your neck when you wake up in the morning (you can prevent any skin irritation from essential oils by diluting it in a carrier oil, like coconut oil, jojoba oil, or olive oil). Only place it on a small patch of your skin in the morning before your day begins, you can place it again at night or when you are undergoing an allergic reaction. With the use of a carrier oil you can also apply peppermint oil near your nostrils. Or apply to the bottoms of your feet prior to putting on your sox and boots for riding. This will be effective in providing instant relief especially if you are having trouble breathing because of your allergies.
- Peppermint is often mixed or blended with other respiratory supporting oil blends available, which is a wonderful blend of Laurel Leaf, Eucalyptus Leaf, Peppermint Plant, Melaleuca Leaf, Lemon Peel, Ravensara Leaf, Cardamom Seed essential oils. Let me know if you would like more information.
