(peaceful music) – Hi, I’m Andrea Butje
from Aromahead Institute, and welcome to my YouTube channel. I wanna show you how to make a great blend for reducing allergies. And this one is meant for
adults, this is the parent blend. If you have kids with
allergies, I did recently just also make a video
for a kid allergy blend, so make sure to check that out. Okay, so we’re gonna
do it in aloe vera gel. And that’s a perfect carrier
because this is a nighttime blend, the aloe rubs in
really easily, and it’s light and cooling and refreshing. And you won’t get any oil on your sheets. So I’m going to fill this two ounce PET plastic bottle with the aloe. I love the shape of
this, it’s sort of oval. And although I do usually blend in glass, when I leave something by my bedside, I usually do it in PET plastic. Just because if you’re reaching for it in the night, it’s easy to knock over. Okay, so I’m gonna just
pour the aloe right in here. And we’ll fill this up almost all the way. Just leave a little room
for the essential oils. And then I’m gonna use 10 drops of three different essential oils. And actually, these
are the exact same oils I used for the kid allergy blend, except we’re using a larger
concentration for adults. So in this case, I’m
gonna use black spruce, cedarwood, and our beautiful lavender, and we’re gonna do 10 drops of each. Now, black spruce is amazing for reducing stuffy head, congestion, sinus infection. It’s so clearing and it’s
just a great one to use. So 10 drops. Comes out fast, okay, good. And then cedarwood, I just find cedarwood to be so grounding and it’s really gentle, and yet incredible decongestant. And so, it’s just the oil that you want when you’re dealing
with a lot of allergies, ’cause it’ll help calm down
the reaction, help calm down the itchy eyes and stuffy
nose, and all of that. Of course, you don’t put it anywhere near your eyes, but it still helps. Okay, so 10 drops of the cedarwood. There we go, good. And then, lastly, 10 drops of lavender. Lavender’s the most
well-rounded oil I know. It helps with so many things. And in particular, it’s great
for the respiratory system, and it’s great for the nervous system. So it’s really gonna help you sleep. And it’s gonna help with any
sort of sinus congestion, headache, that allergic
reaction, it’ll calm down. Okay, so 10 drops. And 10, it smells so good. This combination is so beautiful together. And I put it in a disc top bottle so it’s very easy to get
out a few drops at a time. So I would just give it a
shake before you use it, and then you can just
go ahead and apply it to your shoulders, the back
of your neck, to your back, to your feet, wherever you wanna apply it. I wouldn’t put it right around your eyes, but anywhere else is great. And then you can use it right before bed, and then if you wake up in the night and you’re congested,
you can use it again. Use it in the morning, and you can carry it around with you as well. It’s a very nourishing blend. So I hope it helps, let me know, okay? Take care, talk to you soon, bye-bye.

  1. Is it ok to dilute a thicker aloe vera gel with distilled water? Mine is not like yours.
    Love ALL your videos!

  2. Thanks once again for all that you continue to share with us. I look forward to all your videos and emails. Andrea, my husband gets sort of "horkey" (that's the best word I can come up with) at bed time, and in the morning. He's never been tested for anything, so we have no idea what the cause is, but sometimes its through out the day as well. Would something like this help in any way? And if it did, where would you apply it? When he does get like this, he takes the OTC allergy meds and I'm not sure it helps, but he thinks it does.
    Also, would you have a link for that particular bottle and the flip cap that you are using here? I love the shape of it as well…I'd love to find the amber glass ones in that shape as well, but i'll start with the amber PET. Thanks bunches!

  3. Hi Andrea, after taking your free allergy webinar recently have ordered my oils and Aloe and will be making this ASAP, I love how informative and precise your channel is, as I can't afford to take a course, it's my first go to in my new journey using essential oils.
    Could you please advise me, as someone who suffers from chronic allergies incl allergic & non-allergic rhinitis PLUS insomnia, what are your best recipe recommendations for overnight?
    I have purchased an electric aromatherapy diffuser, which I am just putting lavender oil and orange oil in to at the moment but I am looking for something with more substance to help me sleep. Thank you in advance for your reply! Debi-Lea (UK). X
