Do you relate spring and summer to a chorus of sneezing and sniffling? You're not alone. Many allergy sufferers try to relieve their symptoms any way they can. But popping pills isn't your only option. Instead, try these seven natural allergy remedies.
  1. Nasal passages: Airborne allergens can get lodged in your nasal passages, causing irritation all day. Rinse your nasal passages daily with a neti pot, nasal syringe or nasal saline spray.
  2. Windows: Keep the windows to your home and car closed to block allergens from permeating your personal space. It also helps to remove your shoes when you arrive at home and change into clean clothes after spending time outdoors.
  3. Air filters: Install high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters into your air conditioning unit to prevent allergens from spreading throughout your home.
  4. Shower: Take a hot shower after spending time outdoors. The soapy water washes away allergens and the steam helps relieve congestion and other allergy-related symptoms. To enhance the steam's power to open your nasal passages, add a drop of eucalyptus essential oil to the floor of your shower.
  5. Local honey: There are many claims — though a lack of conclusive scientific proof — that eating a spoonful of locally produced honey each day can inoculate you against the allergy symptoms created by the pollen in your hometown.
  6. Spicy foods: Bring on the hot peppers and wasabi! Eating spicy foods helps clear out your sinuses and reduce congestion. Spicy food lovers will enjoy both the allergy relief and the tasty dishes that deliver that relief.
  7. Hot tea: Just like in your shower, the heat from hot tea helps open up your nasal passages and relieve congestion. Some teas, such as peppermint, help clear your nose and throat, while others, such as green tea, help inhibit allergic reactions.
