4 Natural Allergy Relief Tips

Allergies have become quite common nowadays. At least 20% of Americans suffer from some sort of allergies. Most doctor will prescribe or suggest a traditional medicine such as fexofenadine or loratadine. (Allegra and Claritin) While traditional medicine works very well, there are options for natural and homeopathic allergy relief.

Neti Pots

 A neti pot,

used in conjunction with a salt water solution, will cleanse excess mucus from your sinus cavities. This helps provide relief from stuffy noses and post nasal drip. Neti pots can be purchased from your local pharmacy or grocery store and used for a long time. Some are even dishwasher safe!

Local pollen count

are great resources to help you avoid unnecessary exposure to allergens and irritants. When pollen levels are high, stay inside as much as possible. Also, avoid using window fans and other devices that will open your home to large amounts of pollen. You can use to check your local pollen count. 

Beeswax candles
Bluecorn Naturals

Light a candle.

It sounds silly, but 100% beeswax candles with cotton wicks actually rid the air of pollutants and irritants. As the candle and wick burn, negative ions are released into the air. Once released, the negative ions bond with the positive ions of things like pollen and force them to settle onto the ground. 

Nasal Spray.

If you need a natural antihistamine, look no further than stinging nettles! With a name like that its easy to pass on this option but give it a try. The nettle prevents the production of histamine, the main culprit of allergic reactions. Try you're local health food store for nasal sprays containing stinging nettle.
