Homemade Seasonal Allergy Nose Balm


I’m so excited to share with you my latest discovery: a completely natural, Homemade Seasonal Allergy Nose Balm…that truly works and works pretty darn quickly for those pesky seasonal allergies.


And it’s SO simple to make!


If you’ve never heard of a nose balm before, let me fill you in:


Basically, you apply this homemade seasonal allergy nose balm to the base of your nose and your nostrils to “catch” all the stuff you don’t want entering your nose. You know…. stuff like pollen, dust, mold, dander and other allergens. The nose balm traps those allergens before they ever have a chance to enter the nasal passageways. 


And by doing so, this diy nose balm relieves allergy and hayfever symptoms! Less pollen and other allergens means less sneezing, watery nose, itchy eyes, etc.

Clinical studies show that nose balms really do work at reducing and eliminating allergy symptoms. And my friends and family agree…this homemade seasonal allergy nose balm really does work!


Thankfully, I don’t have any allergies to deal with anymore. I think mostly because I’ve been really vigilant about boosting my immune system and liver function before allergy season hits — which is key for getting to the root of allergies (keep an eye out for my next post…it’s everything I do so I don’t get allergies in the first place — UPDATE — CLICK HERE for what I do to prevent seasonal allergies). But many in my family do deal with seasonal allergies and they say this nose balm has been working wonders for them. 


They wanted me to be sure to tell you that they also apply this nose balm on their cheeks and temples each morning and before bed and they wake up with no congestion! Wow! That’s so great to hear that it works so well!

And this DIY Nose Balm is SO simple to make! It simply contains beeswax, coconut oil and a few natural anti-histamine essential oils.


Homemade Nose Balm Ingredient Benefits


Beeswax conditions the skin and provides a protective barrier from pollen and other allergens. 


Coconut oil

You probably already know how nourishing coconut oil is for the skin. Coconut oil is very soothing and healing. Especially to red, sore noses!


Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils

The specific essential oils of lemon, lavender and peppermint are natural antihistamines and have anti-inflammatory properties so they are perfect for seasonal allergies. This specific blend of oils is well known to work wonders for all allergy symptoms, but especially sneezing, runny nose, and watery eyes. And it works very quickly!

FYI: Leave out the peppermint essential oil if you’re pregnant or using it for kids under 6. And be sure to use steam-distilled lemon essential oil since we’re using this nose balm on our face. Unlike cold-pressed lemon essential oil which may cause burning if you go out in the sun, steam distilled is not photo-sensitive so you don’t have to worry about that! I use THIS steam-distilled lemon essential oil. 


So are you ready to make this with me?! Find the easy recipe below and say bye-bye to your seasonal allergy symptoms!

How to Make Homemade Seasonal Allergy Nose Balm:

DIY: Homemade Seasonal Allergy Nose Balm
Serves: about 1 ounce
This homemade seasonal allergy nose balm really does work for those pesky allergies!
  1. Add a few inches of water to a skillet and place the skillet on your stove at medium low heat. Or if you are fancy and have a double boiler, use that 🙂
  2. Place a glass jar in the water and add your beeswax to the jar. Allow the beeswax to melt - this takes 15 or more minutes. Side note: Since anything with beeswax can be difficult to clean, I have a designated mason jar for all my beeswax projects. I also use a paper straw for stirring so I don't have to clean any beeswax coated utensils.
  3. Once the beeswax has melted, add the coconut oil and allow the mixture to melt, stirring occasionally.
  4. Once everything is melted and liquid, remove the jar from heat and add in your lemon, lavender and peppermint essential oils.
  5. Pour liquid into a tin or jar of choice and let harden, about 1 hour. This recipe makes about 1 ounce so I like using THESE tins. This recipe fills one of those tins.
  1. Apply the a bit of the nose balm to the base of your nose and nostrils throughout the day or whenever you need fast relief. You can also apply it to your cheeks and temples for further relief for itchy, watery eyes and sinus allergies.

    Should all 3 of the essential oils be steam-distilled? Or just the lemon?

      Thank you, Barbara! Life did happen and wow, those babies and toddlers are a lot of work haha!! As much as I wanted to keep blogging and have SO much to share from all that I have been learning, my priorities definitely shifted. As Sam gets older, I’m finding it easier to blog and share. He’s only little once and I want to spend as much quality time with him as I can because I know it goes fast 🙂 Thanks for checking in…I loved getting your comment!!!
