My allergies are on the fritz!
With it being so dry out the pollen doesn’t get washed away, instead, its floating around the air in the wind and being brought inside your home! Its so miserable! I was walking around like a zombie with a runny nose, non-stop sneezing, and watery eyes, and when they did finally calm down a little I had a soar throat from sneezing so much! It was a loosing battle and the only thing that I thought worked was over the counter meds.
Then I found out that the following herbs help:
- Stinging Nettle
- Green Tea
- Cayenne pepper
For a quick temporary relief if you have peppermint store it in a mason jar in the dark and when you need it to be bale to breathe you can open the top and take a big whiff! Be careful not to get too close as some peppermints are much stronger than others!
Another great way to help your allergies is to use eucalyptus oil. You can put this directly on to pressure points! You can also add it to any tea for a great flavor and it will help internally by helping to promote sinus drainage.
An amazing fact about garlic, it helps the body produce less sticky mucus. So by having less of this mucus it is actually acting as a nasal decongestant! So start adding garlic to your meals!
