Many of us suffer unnecessarily from seasonal allergies. We are quick to grab over the counter solutions, but did you know that you probably have allergy relief right in your own home? Listed below, I share a few of my favorite all natural remedies.
7 Natural Remedies for Fall Allergy Relief:
Eucalyptus Essential Oil
You can use Eucalyptus Essential Oil for seasonal allergy relief in a variety of ways. First, add several drops into in a Neti pot, or inhale it via a diffuser or even add a few drops to your nightly bath. Breathe in deep to open up the nasal passages and lungs.
Frankincense Essential Oil
When we are suffering from season allergies, our immune system takes a beating. To keep your immune system in tip-top shape add Frankincense Essential Oil to your daily routine. Rub Frankincense behind your ears and or on the chest or you can just diffuse it for a minimum of three hours a day.
Apple Cider Vinegar
My go-to ACV is by the brand Bragg’s™ and I have found it to be one of the better brands on the market. Start your day off with a warm 8oz cup of water with two teaspoons of ACV (if you don’t like the taste you can add some lemon or a tiny bit of honey). Since ACV promotes alkalinity and PH balance in our bodies, it is the perfect all natural remedy to ward off all types of allergies.
Raw Local Honey
Local honey contains bee pollen, which can fend off infections, allergies, and boost our immune systems. The bees in your local area are going from flower to flower collecting the same pollen that you are suffering from. So, it makes complete sense that eating local RAW honey made from those same flowers would build up your immunity to the pollen allergies in your general area.
Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint Essential Oil acts as an expectorant and provides relief from seasonal allergies as well as coughs, sinusitis, and respiratory issues. Add a few drops to your favorite carrier oil and apply to your chest, temples, and feet. You may also want to add five to six drops to a warm bath or a diffuser; this will help open up your sinus passages.
Green tea is a natural antihistamine and is packed with antioxidants. I recommend drinking two to 3 cups a day for optimal results.
Hot Spicy Foods
I know it sounds strange, but have you ever noticed when you eat hot food your nose starts to run? Well, that’s because hot spicy foods can clean out our nasal passages. Grab some cayenne, red pepper flakes, or some hot sauce and add them to your next meal. This is an easy way to clean things out.
So, before you grab for an over-the-counter option, why not try one of these all-natural solutions instead? Here’s to your best health this allergy season!
