Think again, my friend. 2013 decided to give me a taste of what seasonal allergies look like. And it's not fun at all.
Well, it could be worse. But I'm really annoyed with my nose and eyes at the moment: I blow my nose every five minutes and, sometimes, my eyes are so red it looks like I took a swim in a pool full of vinegar. Or acid.
So far, drinking sage has helped making life a little better, but I also found some other natural remedies that I'll try if it becomes too much. I thought they could be helpful to you too, if you're as unlucky as I am.
1/ Drink Peppermint and/or Nettle tea (sage seems to work on me too). And a lot of water.
2/ Drink apple cider vinegar mixed with water (twice a day).
3/ Apparently, neti pots are your best friend when it comes to seasonal allergies. I hate this, but if it really works, why not?
4/ Use essential oils: Peppermint, lavender, lemon, Eucalyptus, chamomile.
Are you in the same boat as I am? Got any tips and tricks?
