In addition, it is an effective expectorant, working to rid the body of harmful microorganisms and toxins that aggravate allergies. In a separate study, eucalyptus oil was identified as effectively treating upper respiratory tract infections and reducing the severity of debilitating respiratory symptoms, including lessening hoarseness, sore throat, and cough if used within the first three days .
Basil oil has been shown to decrease the body’s response to allergens, by reducing the inflammation of mucous membranes and difficulty breathing. It does this while simultaneously stimulating the body’s adrenal glands . This is important because the adrenal glands assist the body in overcoming the symptoms that come with allergies and helping the body remove toxins and bacteria.
Lemon oil works against allergies in multiple ways. First, it contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. This gives your immune system a much-needed boost to fight against allergies . Second, it offers benefits to your lymphatic system by decreasing the swelling in your lymph nodes and protecting you from pathogens. Finally, it stimulates lymphatic drainage, which reduces the buildup of fluids and phlegm that contribute to your hacking cough.
