1. Sandalwood


Getting a good night’s sleep when you’re struggling with allergies can be a challenge. Chest congestion causes our breathing to become labored, while sneezing fits and itchy, swollen eyes can keep us up for all hours, tossing and turning.


Sandalwood essential oils have been proven to reduce our bodies’ histamine response and help us get a good night’s sleep by settling down our allergic reaction intensity. This histamine response is a natural defense mechanism in our immune system that kicks into high gear when particular allergens are triggered.

While this allergic reaction is designed to defend our bodies and keep us safe by alerting us if we’ve eaten something dangerous that could cause anaphylactic shock... It can get a little out of control and cause unnecessary reactions from simply inhaling non-harmful pollen, grass or dust.
