Though we are all excited about the stirrings of spring, with this change of season comes … the pollen.

aromatic honey for allergy season

For Sylla, that means lots of sneezing, a runny nose, and red eyes. After a day of thinking she might be coming down with a cold, the increasing green and warmth reminds her that it’s probably just allergies. Sound familiar?

That’s why she made some aromatic honey for allergy season a few weeks ago.

Not only do the oils help us control our symptoms from the increasing pollen of the spring season, but local, seasonal honey is a great way to treat this issue as well.

Watch our video to find out:

  • Why local, raw, honey helps allergies
  • How to make your own aromatic honey
  • Plus 3 more ways essential oils can put allergy symptoms at bay

Aromatic Honey Blend:

8-10 Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia) -or- replace with another Melaleuca species like Tea Tree

2 Blue Tansy (Tanacetum annuum)

1 Peppermint (Mentha × piperita)

The therapeutic effects of these oils result in a honey that is anti-infectious, decongestant, and anti-inflammatory. It’s perfect for easing inflamed sinuses and sore throats, and it allows for much better breathing.

We recommend making a big batch so you can use it in an inhaler and oil blend as well!

After watching, comment below and tell us:

  • How do you prefer to take your honey? On a toothpick, in your tea? What other creative ways can we use it?
  • What other oils might be good in some honey and why? (Think of other therapeutic actions you’d like to utilize internally … We use this thinking process to help our students become more confident and creative aromatherapists.)
