Home remedies for allergy season

Bee Pollen

This will only work if the pollen is local. Starting in small amounts and gradually increasing the dosage daily helps build up your immunity to the pollen in your area. Make sure you are not anaphylactic or severely allergic to bees, or so allergic to pollen that you experience anaphylaxis.

Bee pollen is crunchy, musty, and very floral-enjoy it plain or sprinkle some over yogurt or oatmeal in the morning!

 

 

Nettle and Peppermint Tea

The peppermint contains a type of flavonoid called luteolin-7-O-rutinoside which can help inhibit the activity and secretion of anti-inflammatory enzymes, such as histamines, and greatly reduce the dreadful discomfort that comes along them.

 

-1 teaspoon of dried peppermint OR ¼ cup chopped fresh peppermint
-1 teaspoon of dried nettle leaf OR ¼ cup chopped fresh nettle leaf
-Honey and lemon to taste (optional)
-8 ounces of fresh water
