It’s Spring, which also means it’s allergy season. You may use a menthol vapor rub for decongestion, but there are also some great herbal ingredients which are natural decongestants.
Eucalyptus is a natural antiseptic that helps unclog your nasal passages and help your respiratory system. It’s a main ingredient found in a lot of decongestant creams, and it usually relives respiratory tightness and other symptoms associated with congestion and colds. It can be ingested through tea, but it can also be rubbed on the skin as eucalyptus oil, or a lotion or cream containing eucalyptus, to relieve small pains. Eucalyptus gives off a cooling sensation, which is why it’s often used to loosen congestion in the chest, and treat muscle aches and inflammation. On the skin, Eucalyptus can also treat and soothe burns, bites, and cuts.
Chamomile also has antiseptic properties, but its anti-inflammatory and relaxing properties are what it is well known for. It can be inhaled and digested to relieve aches and pains, and help to sedate (ever heard the recommendation to drink chamomile tea when you are having trouble sleeping?). It eases the mind, as well as the body, by calming the nervous system, relaxing cramps, gas, and helping discomfort.
Besides its soothing scent that is usually used in aromatherapy, lavender has major calming and antibacterial properties. The fragrant lavender scent can be the perfect cure for stress, depression, and even temporary insomnia! It triggers relaxation, and helps treat headaches and migraines. Lavender oil’s active ingredient, Linalol, has a lot of the same benefits as Eucalyptus and Chamomile. It helps heal acne, skin irritations, burns, and wounds. It has major anti-inflammatory properties, and reduces pain, soreness, and scarring.
Pevonica Botanica’s RS2 Care Cream is a unique cream that moisturizes while it decongests. It has UV protection and gives skin a calm, soothed, and completely decongested complexion. It’s formulated with Green Tea, Licorice, and Chamomile, to create this uniquely textured cream that provides your skin with hydrating and repairing benefits.

- “Wow I received a sample of this cream from a friend. I am so glad I did! I do not have rosacea, but I do have some redness on a couple areas of my face. I used this cream on those red spots and they pretty much disappeared! I was shocked, but in a good way. I bought the larger jar today. Highly recommended for redness on face”. Danna, Great Falls, MT.
- “After using the samples given to me by a friend, I knew Pevonica RS2 Care Cream was for me. I have pre-rosacea and very fair and sensitive skin – always have. My dermatologist recently told me, laser would be the only treatment for me to address my rosacea. So far I have been very pleased with Pevonia RS2. This moisturizer has a slight “rose” fragrance which I like.” Leslie, Los Angeles, CA
- “Only thing I have found that controls my skin disorder without costly prescription drugs. Thank You.” Leeann, Tampa, FL
