Essential Oils for Spring
It’s Spring! The weather is all over the place, the insects are starting to appear, and everything is blooming. The kids bring home another round of sickness (thanks a lot!), and the pollen is flying! Ah-choo!
How can you support your body naturally during this transformation from one season to the next?
doTERRA Has a Solution

The more time you spend reading on CrazyQuiltMama.com, the more you’ll realize that every oil doTERRA offers has multiple benefits, and is useful for supporting several of your body’s natural health. This post will outline which oils and products will best help you combat those seasonal threats, so you can enjoy the changing of the seasons.
Every single oil, product, and combination I recommend – I’ve used. And loved. Because they work.
Respiratory Issues, Seasonal Threats (Pollen, etc.)
Whether your springtime respiratory difficulties are because the trees and flowers are blooming, or because the kids shared their germs, these oils will help.
Breathe Respiratory Blend
doTERRA’s Breathe Respiratory Blend is a top-seller for a reason. I was at a health fair recently, and I lost count of how many people came up and said, “Do you have Breathe? That’s the best!” Or tried it while standing at my table, said thanks and wandered off, only to return a while later RAVING about how much better they were breathing! It truly only takes one drop to make a huge difference. How doTERRA Breathe Blend Convinced a Skeptic
Several ways to use Breathe Blend:
- Smell it directly from the bottle to immediately open your airways and sinuses
- Put one drop on the palm of your hand, rub hands together and breathe in deeply from cupped hands.
- Dilute in a roller bottle; roll on upper lip, chest, reflex points on feet
- Diffuse in a diffuser, or wear a drop on diffuser jewelry. Diffuse in the car.
- Put one or two drops into a cup of steaming water, drape your head with a towel and breathe in deeply
- Drip a few drops in the shower or bath
- Make Breathe Shower Melts, or Breathe-Infused Epsom Salts
doTERRA offers Breathe as an undiluted oil blend, a prediluted roller bottle, a rub-on stick, and soothing throat drops. Learn more about them here.
doTERRA has harnessed the power of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint and combined them into a softgel, to be taken internally to support your body’s histamine response to seasonal threats, and make it easier to breathe and live while the pollen is in the air. Take one softgel and pretty soon you don’t feel the overwhelming urge to rub your face completely OFF. I know, I’ve struggled with seasonal issues (itchy watery eyes, stuffy or runny nose, etc.) on and off my whole life.
(Many doTERRA oils are safe to ingest, but don’t take other oils internally. Read more about that here.)
No joke, I watched first-hand while TriEase Softgels relieved ALL the symptoms of seasonal discomfort from THREE different people, who all had very different symptoms. They each took only one softgel, and within minutes every single symptom was gone. Not temporarily masked, but gone. Eyes weren’t watery. Sinuses opened up. Voices came back. Throats weren’t itchy.

Lemon Essential Oil is amazing and bright and uplifting. It’s great for cleaning and purifying. It’s also great for breaking up mucus. That’s why it’s part of the TriEase Softgels. Lemon is purifying and cleansing to the body’s systems, and helps to support respiratory function.
Lemon can also help ease sad feelings. Dilute in a roller bottle and roller on wrists or bottoms of feet, put in the diffuser or even incorporate Lemon essential oil into your baking! We love a drop in fruit salad, cupcake frosting. And of course a drop or two of Lemon in your water glass will taste great and help support your liver function.

Lavender Essential Oil is well-known for its relaxing and calming properties. Of course it’s often used for sleep and emotional calming, but Lavender is equally calming to your physical systems as well. Lavender is also a natural antihistimine.
Lavender is another oil that can be used many ways – in the bath, for all sorts of skin issues, on the feet or pillow at bedtime, in the diffuser, even in the kitchen.
Peppermint is commonly used for helping to alleviate head tension. But it’s also great for opening up airways and respiratory support. It’s great for digestive health, for cooking, for diffusing and even for repelling insects and rodents. peppermint also has a cooling effect on the skin, so it’s great to apply to the back of the neck when you’ve been working outside.
