Histamine Intolerance

We would also suggest the following vitamins:

Vitamin B6: Pyridoxine: Helps break histamine down. Help the body use and store energy from proteins and carbohydrates. Helps the body form haemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body.

Vitamin C: Helps break histamine down and lower histamine blood levels.

Copper: Helps raise levels of the enzyme that breaks histamine down.

Manganese: Helps raise levels of the enzyme that breaks histamine down.

Zinc: Hels the enzyme break histamine down.  Has anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy properties.

Magnesium: Raises the allergic response threshold.

Calcium: to help relieve hives and skin flushing.

Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • Frankincense Essential Oil

Massage – Buy a base oil: sweet almond or jojoba. If you have 20ml of base oil, add half the amount of Essential Oil drops. In this case, you will add 4 drops of Lavender, 3 drops of Frankincense and 3 drops of Eucalyptus. Rub the blend over the body, as required. Especially effective after a bath.

Bath – Your skin is the most absorbent part of the body. The heat of the bath assists in the absorption. There are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Diffusing 5 drops (maximum) of Essential Oils into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 2 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Eucalyptus and 1 drop of Frankincense. Add Epsom salts.
  2. Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.

Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes.

Diffuser/Burner – Add 5 drops to a diffuser/burner. (2 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Eucalyptus and 1 drop of Frankincense)

Inhalation – Add 1 drop of each oil onto a tissue/cloth and inhale as necessary.

** A patch test is required – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **

If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.

** Oils are for external use only and must be blended with a carrier oil. Always avoid the eyes, ears and nose **

** Lavender is the safest of oils, if on a rare occasion you react, apply more base oil to the skin to soothe it and dilute the massage blend with more base oil **

** Eucalyptus – Avoid during pregnancy/lactation, epilepsy, on homoeopathic remedies. Avoid use for children under 1 and with caution up to the age of 8, although our Eucalyptus Smithii oil is much gentler, great for children **

** Frankincense – Avoid use during pregnancy/lactating, if any bleeding disorders or on anticoagulants. Avoid with children below 5 and caution below 8 **
