DIY Allergy Relief Balm

DIY Allergy BalmFall is around the corner and with the falling leaves and cooler air, allergies seem to come on with a vengeance.  Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint are powerful essential oils that combine to make a healthy, easy DIY allergy relief balm remedy for sniffles and sneezes!  Together they create a strong antihistamine and reduce inflammation.  So I thought why not make a salve of it?

At my home, allergies run rampant. First, we live in the most allergy inducing state ever (Oklahoma). Second, we love animals.

It’s no secret how much I love cats.  Funny fact, I used to be allergic to them.  Here and there I’ll feel that itchy, sneezy feeling come back on when I’ve spent too much time hugging and kissing on my fur babies! It makes me feel warm and fuzzy when people call me a crazy cat lady! I’m serious. I love cats….A LOT.

 Anyway, I digress, any excuse to talk cats.  As for other allergies, my daughters and I are very effected by seasonal outdoor allergies and require relief often. I have a few allergy season must haves to help relieve allergies but this DIY allergy balm is always close in the spring.

DIY Allergy Balm Ingredients

I chose peppermint, lemon and lavender essential oils due to their powerful anti inflammatory qualities. Plus, peppermint can really help decongest a stuffy nose.

This DIY allergy balm has healing coconut oil and antioxidant rich olive oil!  I like this combo and use it for my DIY Neosporin and DIY Vapor Rub recipes as well. It is great for applying around the nose for relief from inflammation and a raw nose.  I get allergy bumps on my face so I’m excited to use this to reduce my skin bumps.  This would also be good to use on mosquito bites as well!  Apply to the bottoms of the feet for added allergy relief-apply at night and it might just help you sleep!

DIY Allergy Balm


So, here’s the recipe.  Like most balms, this is easy!

DIY Allergy Relief Balm

1/4 cup  Coconut Oil (buy it HERE)

1 TBSP Beeswax (buy it HERE)

15 drops Lemon Essential Oil (find it HERE)

15 drops Lavender Essential Oil (find it HERE)

15 drops Peppermint Essential Oil (find it HERE)


  1. Fill a medium pot half way full with water.
  2. Place a glass bowl with a spout in the water.
  3. Add Oils and beeswax together in the glass bowl.
  4. Once beeswax is melted remove from heat, add essential oils and pour into containers.

*This makes about 5 oz. and will stay good for around 6 mos.  I put the left overs in a lip balm tube for on the go relief!*

  Also, if you can get your hands on local beeswax and honey-grab it!  Using bee products from your area can really help your body adjust more quickly to seasonal outdoor allergies.  Even beeswax candles local or not, can go a long way when it comes to clearing the air!
