Home Remedies For Allergy Relief

Allergy symptoms can vary but the common ones are itching, swelling, runny nose, asthma, and sneezing.
 What are Allergies?
 An allergy is a damaging immune system response to a substance that does not bother most other people. Common allergies are food, insect bites, pollen, dust, medicine, pets (ah, yes), and mold.

 Natural Allergy Treatments
 If you want to use essential oils, melaleuca, lavender, peppermint, roman chamomile, Melissa, patchouli, and eucalyptus.
 For coughing, use do Terra Purify blend because it has immune stimulating properties.  For hay fever, use lavender, eucalyptus, rose, and peppermint.
 Recipe 1: Apply 1 drop of peppermint on the base of the neck two times a day. Tap the thymus (located just below the notch in the neck) with your pointer fingers. Diffuse peppermint.
 Recipe 2: For allergy rashes and skin sensitivity, apply 3 drops lavender, 6 drops Roman chamomile, 2 drops myrrh, and 1 drop peppermint on location.
 The recipe I use is approximately 3 drops each of lemon, lavender, and peppermint in a glass of water at least once a day. I only have to take an allergy pill 2 or 3 times a week anymore and that is only to keep my eyes from itching.

  Herbal Remedies for Allergies
  If you want to try herbs for allergy relief, butterbur is a good one.  Butterbur is just as effective at relieving nasal symptoms as Zyrtec and Allegra.' It won't make you sleepy, either. You can find Butterbur in capsule form from most health stores.
 Cayenne pepper is also helpful because it has capsaisin in it. That'll clear your sinuses out, eh? Capsaisin is used for treating an array of different health conditions, but regarding allergies, it may reduce the swelling in your throat membranes.
 To use cayenne pepper to reduce throat swelling, mix either ?? of a lemon or lime with 1 tbsp. of salt. Add ?? cut of lukewarm water and stir in ?? tsp. of cayenne pepper and gargle small amounts. DO NOT swallow the mixture

 Natural Allergy Supplements
 Maybe you want to take some vitamins to help your allergies and boot your immune system a bit? Here are a few to choose from:
 B Vitamins
 B vitamins help build immunity. You probably want a B complex because B5, B6 and B12 work together to rebalance the immune system. Vitamin B5 builds cortisol, which defends against allergies and allergic reactions.
 Vitamin C
 Vitamin C reduces histamine levels and boosts the immune system. If you are fighting allergies, you should take it in doses of 4,000 mg. You can make it more effective by eating citrus fruits, berries, and dark green vegetables while you are taking it.
 Next time you go to the store to buy some expensive medicine, think about these allergy relief home remedies.
