Relief For Allergy Sufferers! {Natural Allergy Remedy That Works}

Today’s post I am particularly excited to write. So read it. Don’t skip and read just the pictures. :) So allergy season is in full swing now, at least it is down in the South. Have I always had allergies? I honestly do not know, never been tested. But what I do know is that I have always had severely sensitive skin, and whelps up easily, and I have horrible itching fits. So yes, I am convinced I am allergic to something. Thank goodness next Wednesday is almost here because I am going to an allergist to actually SEE what the allergy is. BUT….

In the meantime, and since this new oily venture for me that I can’t stop talking about, I tried out what essential oil lovers call the LLP bomb, or LLP protocol, or LLP recipe, and let me tell you something. It instantly stops my issues when applied.

Now, LLP stands for Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint. That is the typical “oily” allergy protocol. And it works. And works well.

But mix in the Copaiba oil pictured in the first photo, and it’s truly a powerhouse combination!

Why? Because the Copaiba oil works as what is called a magnifying oil. Meaning, if you apply it to or with other oils, it is going to enhance the other oils’ properties giving you maximum benefits.

Copaiba is highly regarded as being an amazing anti-inflammatory oil and comes from the oleoresin of the Copaiba Tree. It is used for many things:

And let me tell you this too–last night I was starting to get that scratchy throat, chest congestion stuff trying to happen. Well I remembered about Copaiba’s respiratory benefits, so I put 3 drops in a clear vegetable cap (shown below later) and some olive oil in the same cap, swallowed, and minutes later my nose was dripping!! And it has not even been runny at all. But Copaiba acts as an expectorant too, so it was just breaking down all of that junk just like that! I was seriously amazed.

So guys, I have been applying the LLP+Copaiba recipe on the back of my neck and bottoms of my feet as prevention, and if I feel an itch coming on I’ll roll it directly on the area and it’s immediately stopped. I really can’t get over this. And I know SO many people suffer from allergies, and I know SO many people who only use this LLP protocol now with success and it’s really life changing. If you know you are going to be outside or cleaning around lots of dust or whatever your allergy may be, just roll this on and you will *hopefully* be good to go. I also apply this on my daughter too.

I ordered these little amber glass roller bottles from Abundant Health for super cheap and am ADDICTED to them!! They are so very handy.

Use a Roller Bottle to Apply Essential Oils | www.decorchick.com

To make my allergy recipe in the roller bottle this is what I added:

  • 20 drops of lemon
  • 20 drops of lavender
  • 20 drops of peppermint
  • 20 drops of Copaiba
  • add equal parts or a little less (depending on your skin sensitivity) of carrier oil, like olive oil, fractionated coconut oil, Young Living’s V-6 oil etc.

That will fill up your bottle nicely and should last a while. If you want to just try it out and see how it works with you, try 10 of each instead.

If you don’t have one of the glass roller bottles, you can always put 2-3 drops of each oil on a spoon with some honey and take orally, OR put 2-3 drops of each in a clear veggie capsule along with some olive oil (or other carrier oil) and swallow.

Ways to Take Essential Oils | www.decorchick.com

I have done all 3 methods that I have talked about in this post, and all 3 work great. It’s truly truly amazing.

Are you ready to try these amazing oils yet? I know so many of you are.

How great would it be to not have to take that Benadryl or Claritin or get that allergy shot any longer? I am not promising you that you won’t have to take them ever again, but it’s worth a shot right?

So I would love to know if you are an allergy sufferer, and what you take for it? How long have you had to take something?

P.S. – New to essential oils in general and want to know what all the hub-ub is about? Read here for more posts and how we use them and how to order as well. Check that page for the latest promotion I am offering also! It’s a good one!

  1. About 5-years ago I developed a rash on my eye-lids. My eyes would swell, itch and burn. I went to the doctor and they gave me steroid drops and an ointment for the lids. It only worked if I kept it on there 24/7. Miss a day and the rash comes back with a vengeance. Within 6-months is spread to the tops of my hands. Then my navel.
    To this day they can’t seem to find out what it is. The rash was biopsied and still no idea. And 5-yeas later it is still on my eyelids, hands and navel. If I keep the ointment on it keep it at bay but I’m worried about all the use of steroids for so long a time.
    I know I’m allergic to cats, dogs and dust. No outside/tree/plant, allergens. No chemicals reactions at all.
    My hubby is a sinus bout & headache waiting to happen so it would be nice to see how the oils help him also.

    I’ve really been thinking of giving the oils a try. What can it hurt. Right?

    Thanks for all the information on the use of oils.

    • oh no that’s not good!! I would love it if you could put some Lavender or Frankincense on it and see if that helps at all. Maybe even the Copaiba.

      And I am pretty certain I am allergic to dust. Get me in a closet and I go crazy. I am kind of excited to see what my allergy actually is!

      And yes!! The oils would be so great for your husband. Seriously. Would love for you to try them. Now you have to because I want to know if it helps your eye-lids! Haha.

      Keep me posted. xxoo

      is the rash itchy? i get exzema from allergies to pollen, food, and makup and i get it on my eye lids and hands and stomach. I had luck with a really potent cream but it was known to cause cancer! so I worked on removing foods and topical irritants from my diet and have not had it in months! I had to remove honey, parabens etc to get rid of the rash on my eyelids

    • sara larson says:

      When you make it up in the roller bottle, where do you apply it, Feet, face ears? I would like to try it :)

      • Hey Sara, I apply it on the back of my neck and wrists usually. Sometimes if I start itching or my daughter does, I’ll apply it direct to the area. A lot of people apply on the bottom of feet too. I am just usually wearing flip flops so I don’t do that often. At night I will though!

  2. Wish I would have waited to sign up. I would love to have the Copaiba. I just received my starter kit yesterday and I am enjoying it already. Thanks!

  3. I’m in! I was planning to sign up this week and your post gave me just the nudge I needed. I have P&C and Valor and they have changed our lives. Can’t wait to get the kit!!

  4. I’m in! Placed my order for the premium starter kit yesterday! I suffer from bad headaches/migraines and I would love to find something natural to use instead of relying on a pill that doesn’t work half the time! I am anxious to start using these and learning more about young living essential oils. Thank you for this amazing opportunity!

  5. Thanks for the post! What size roll on did you use for the 20/20/20 recipe?

  6. Steffanie says:

    When taking via a vegetable capsule, why do you add carrier oil? Would it not be safe with out it?

  7. Wow I love this post. I love making homemade remedies, I usually just make soups or drinks for cold or flu but I haven’t made anything that you can reuse like this one. I like that you can make different scents I think that it’s always an advantage when remedies smell so good it’s like just smelling it makes you feel better already. I don’t really have an allergy that is prominent I guess when I’m exposed to dust that’s the time that I sneeze a lot aside from that I can’t think of anything else. I’ll still make this though just for the fun of it and who knows maybe it will come in handy one day. Thanks so much for this!

    Regards,
    Olivia Clark

    I am curious where you order the roller bottles. Did you get them through Young Living? Also, what size bottle do you need for your recipe? Thank you! If you could please email me I would really appreciate it! God bless – Sydni Gauwitz

  9. Would this work for a horrible debilitating sinus condition? I have tried all kinds of combos so maybe this one will work.

  10. Just wondering if you have tried this combo on young children. I have three under the age of 7 and all suffer from allergies the youngest also has a touch of asthma. I you do use the roll on on children where do you suggest it be applied. Thoughts about adding Raven and R.C. to the chest when really congested? TIA

  11. I have to admit, I’m following your blog right now for these posts. I’m very interested in the whole essential oil thing, and you seem to be so knowledgeable. Is there a definitive book I could get to teach me some of these tricks so I know what each oil will do? Thinking about the whole distributor thing, but kind of had bad news about a financial deal this week. The kind where your ex-husband loses his job. But then again, maybe THAT is the time. Who knows? I took Benedryl last week (I rarely ever take OTC’s because I take a lot of medication) and got up to go to the bathroom in the night and fell. Which is not good, seeing as I have to wear a steel boot due to breaking both sides of my right ankle July 2012. Oh, I would love to find relief from arthritis, because I can’t take medications for it due to reflux.

    • Hey Brenda so glad you are loving the oil posts! And yes, there is a great reference guide book available. I am so sorry about your husband’s job. :( You totally do not have to do the business side by any means, but it is available for you, and I can say it’s been a tremendous blessing to us. Also, if you do want to order a kit, I will send you a $50 Visa gift card AND a book! I will be running a promo tomorrow (that one). I am off to the YL convention today, so when I get back I will be able to send it out to you. Plus another bonus, is that you will be getting the brand new 6th edition reference guide from me! And of course I”ll add you in our support group and everything too so you will have TONS of education. :) If you want to go ahead and order, feel free to sign up and I”ll honor the promo that starts tomorrow. Hope the $50 will help with it. xxoo

  12. When you say equal parts of the carrier oil – are you doing about 80 drops then so it’s equal to all of the EOs combined? Or just another 20 so it’s in equal part. Thanks!

    • I guess about 20? I’ve never measured it out in drops. After I put in all of the drops of oil, I just add enough olive oil or V-6 oil to make it the same amount as what’s in the bottle already.

  13. I bought some roller ball bottles with the intention of putting the allergy trio in one. I apply to my forehead, across cheeks and nose. Sometimes I do behind my ears, as well. My bottles have a plastic ball though so I haven’t tried since lemon doesn’t need to go in the plastic. Is yours a plastic ball? Does the carrier oil help with that, or just help the trio go farther? Thanks for the info!!

    • Hi Lisa, I do have the plastic roller balls on mine too and the allergy trio has been just fine in them so far! The carrier oil may help with that, I’m not sure. I did recently order the metal fitments from YL, so I have those I can put on a bottle too if the citrus oil does mess anything up. :)

    Hi there, love your site for soy as well as EO, which I’m just learning more about. Is the promotion you mention still active? Would love to join and get your support, since you seem so knowledgeable and encouraging about the whole thing without pressure.

  15. In fact when someone doesn’t understand afterward its up to
    other visitors that they will assist, so here it occurs.

  16. Hi there, everything is going well here and ofcourse every one is sharing data, that’s truly excellent, keep up writing.
