Itch Remedies for Every Season

Itch Remedies for Every Season
For the last few days the inside of my ear has been itching.  

The old wives' tale is that means someone is talking about me.  If that's true, I hope it was something nice.

But, I'm pretty sure it's because my body was responding to something I ate or, even more likely, something in the air.  Yes - even in the middle of winter.

Allergic Reactions Are An Overreaction of Your Immune System

According to Mayo Clinic, 
"Your immune system produces substances known as antibodies. When you have allergies, your immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it isn't. "
For many of us these responses by our body are small and just irritating.  Of course, there are also allergies that can be life-threatening.  Fortunately, I don't think I have any of those.

I have found some things that give quick relief to some of my body's responses and I thought they might help you!

Itchy ears, nose or eyes

What I grab when those ears, nose or eyes start itching (or the eyes start watering) is my "seasonal" blend of essential oils.  I have friends who have other seasonal symptoms that this works great for. 

It's so simple to make and the oils in it are great for a multitude of issues.

Seasonal Support

In a 10ml bottle, use
15 Drops Lemon Essential Oil
10 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
15 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
Fill the bottle with carrier oil, add your roller top and ten roll between your hands to mix.

Roll on behind your ears and down your throat as often as needed.

The best way to buy those oils from Young Living is to grab the Premium Starter Kit  What a great value.  Or you can just grab those three in this bundle

By the way, you can get essential oils just about anywhere these days.  But I wouldn't.  Here's a great resource that explains why I choose Young Living.

Skin Irritations - Like Bug Bites and Such

Whether it's bug bites or a skin injury that is finishing healing, my Itch Roller is popular at our house.  You shouldn't roll this on a scab, but you can definitely roll it around the scab and help relieve that healing itch.

Itch Roller

In a 10ml bottle, use
20 Drops Purification Essential Oil Blend
10 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
10 Drops Frankincense Essential Oil
Fill the bottle with carrier oil, add your roller top and ten roll between your hands to mix.

Roll directly on the skin problem or around a scab that is healing.  Once the scab is gone you can put it directly on the scar.

Notice that Lavender is used in this blend as well as the seasonal blend.  It is good for SO MANY THINGS! Check out this blog post on Lavender Essential Oil.

Lavender and Frankincense both come in the Premium Starter Kit (PSK).  Here's a bundle with the PSK plus Purification.

Dry Skin

There are several ways to deal with dry skin.  Just about any internet search will show you these ideas:
  • Drink more water
  • Limit soaps
  • Limit the skin's water exposure
  • Use warm, not hot, water
  • Use natural lotions or creams without the harsh fragrances and other additives that can actually irritate more than they help
My favorite hand and body lotion is Young Living's Lavender Lotion.  The ingredient list for this lotion just sounds soothing!  

Naturally derived oils and butters, botanical extracts, and premium essential oils to soften and soothe dry skin. Wolfberry seed oil, olive-derived squalane, and murumuru butter contain vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants to provide nourishing moisture to the skin, while ingredients such as Lavender premium essential oil and sandalwood extract can help soothe dry skin and provide a fresh, calming aroma.  
If you're ready to grab all the relief, here's a bundle with the goods!  Don't worry about wondering what you're going to do with all that stuff once it arrives.  I've got a plan!  In fact, I'll throw in the roller bottles and some carrier oil for free.  We have a great community that helps each other get the most out of our investment in natural wellness solutions!

Here's to smooth, comfortable skin, my friend!
