doTERRA allergy capsules

Today, my nose was stuffed up and runny due to allergies to dog and cat dander. I found a recipe for doTERRA allergy capsules, and tried it for the first time today. I was amazed that within minutes of taking it, my sinuses cleared up and my breath was able to deepen and had a "fresh" quality to it (it felt as a result of the peppermint).

Fill an empty capsule with:
  • 2 drops of lemon;
  • 2 drops of lavender;
  • 2 drops of peppermint.
    If you don't have capsules, you can just put these drops in a shot glass, swish for 30 seconds and then swallow.

    For children, you can put these same oils on their feet.

    January 13, 2013 - Today, I was proactive and I took a doTERRA allergy capsule before I went to a house that has a dog and two cats, and I didn't experience any allergy symptoms. Yay!!!

    February 10, 2013 - Again, I was proactive and took a doTERRA allergy capsule before I went to a house with three dogs, and didn't experience any allergy symptoms.

    I also put 1 drop of lemon, lavender and peppermint on my six year old's feet (since he's also allergic to animal dander) and he also didn't have any problems, and we were there for 2.5 hours!

    You can get the three main ingredients for the allergy capsules as part of the doTERRA Introductory Kit (lavender, lemon, peppermint - 5 mL each)

    You can also get these oils as part of the Family Physician Kit, and of course, they can also be purchased individually.


    1. Hi,
      I would like to ask you that can it use (lavender,lemon,peppermint for allergic )by a mum who is breastfeeding?
      Thanks a lot,

    2. Hi Anon: Oh, wow, this is a good question. Peppermint may dry up one's milk supply, so I would caution against it. I think for a mom who is breastfeeding, I would suggest putting it on the bottom of her feet instead of taking it internally. Some other thoughts re: breastfeeding and oils here: http://www.everythingessential.me/HealthConcerns/BreastFeeding.html#page=page-2

      Life Long Vitality supplements would be safe for a breastfeeding mom. I know of one mom who found that her baby's eczema was improved after she started taking LLV supplements. http://omaefamily.blogspot.ca/2011/05/amazing-doterra-essential-oils-heal-my.html

    3. Hi Spirit Yoga,

      Many thanks for your quick answer!
      Have a great day!

    4. Hi Linda, I was thinking more about this and if the mother is using the allergy blend (lavender, lemon, peppermint) on her feet and if she finds that her breast milk production decreases, I would eliminate the peppermint.

    5. Hi Spirit Yoga,
      Thank you for the info.

      I have an other question as well. What would you suggest to use a man who always have loose /watery/ stool ( for 2-3 years ). He has gone to a doctor and the doctor said that he is healthy, they did not find any problem.. Have you met such problem before? Could you please help in this matter? Thank you in advance, Linda

    6. Hi Linda: I would suggest DigestZen internally or topically. Internally add 3 - 4 drops to a swallow of water or juice (or place 3-4 drops in a capsule). Topically apply 3 - 4 drops to the lower stomach area.

      I would also suggest a few rounds of GX Assist / PB Assist. GX Assist is a combination of essential oils and caprylic acid for cleansing the gastro intestinal tract. Includes Oregano, Melaleuca, Lemon, Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Thyme essential oils.

      · 3 GX Assist capsules daily for 10 days. Best taken with meals. If uncomfortable reactions reduce the number of daily capsules.

      · Follow with PB Assist, a probiotic, to build healthy digestive functions. 3 capsules per day, with meals, for 5 days.

      · Wait 15 days, repeat. Do this 3 times. (repeat 15 day protocol for 3 months)

      I hope this helps.
