Substances such as food, chemicals, dust, pollen, and animal dander can cause an abnormal reaction of the immune system also known as an allergic reaction. Allergies affect as many as 30 percent of adults and 40 percent of children.
Most often allergic reactions are caused by excess histamine. Histamine can cause itching, wheezing, runny nose, and rashes. Staying hydrated, eating healthy, and sleeping enough helps lessen symptoms, but there is also another surprising natural remedy for your allergies- oregano oil.
Oregano oil contains carvacrol, which has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It also contains rosmarinic acid, which helps calm allergic asthma and seasonal allergic conjunctivitis. This essential oil can be taken internally by mixing 4-6 drops in a glass of juice or honey. Follow with another glass of water to wash it out.
The medicinal properties of oregano oil are amazing and this oil is a wonderful natural replacement for antihistamines.
