Allergies Got You Down? Try These Home Remedies for Relief

Spring is in full bloom, but for many, that means allergy season is also in full swing. The sneezing, itching, and congestion can make life miserable, but there are ways to find relief without using medication. Here are some home remedies to help you manage your allergies:

Honey: Local honey is often touted as a natural remedy for allergies. The idea is that consuming small amounts of local honey can help your body build up a tolerance to the pollen in your area, reducing your allergy symptoms over time.

Neti Pot: Using a neti pot to rinse your nasal passages with saline solution can help clear out allergens and mucus, reducing congestion and inflammation.

Steam Inhalation: Inhaling steam from a bowl of hot water can help soothe irritated nasal passages and reduce congestion.

Saline Nasal Spray: Using a saline nasal spray can help moisturize your nasal passages and flush out allergens.

Quercetin: Quercetin is a natural antihistamine found in foods like onions, apples, and berries. Adding more quercetin-rich foods to your diet may help reduce allergy symptoms.

Essential Oils: Some essential oils, such as peppermint and eucalyptus, have natural decongestant properties and can help clear your sinuses. However, be sure to dilute them properly and use caution if you have sensitive skin or respiratory issues.

Clean Your Home: Keeping your home clean and free of dust, pet dander, and other allergens can help reduce your exposure to triggers.
