We are well into spring, which means we are well into allergy season! Allergy medicines can help but they can also get expensive, and some of us would rather try a more natural route. These are some practices of allergy sufferers that may help you enjoy this season a bit more.
Eat local honey.
It is a common practice to eat local honey so that you can familiarize your body with the environment of your area and the allergens in it. This may be especially helpful to allergy sufferers who have recently moved, as their bodies are probably not used to the allergens in the area. Honey is often used by itself, but many bloggers love to combine local honey with other remedies. You can find local honey at a local farmer’s market.
Use essential oils.

Take a dose of turmeric and honey.

Start inside the home.

Your home should be a place where you can escape the allergens and let your sinuses have some peace. The author of Two Twenty One shares her quick tips for reducing the allergens in your home.
