If you’re currently dealing with a scratchy throat, runny nose and itchy, dry, uncomfortable eyes then you may just be experiencing seasonal allergies.
It’s very common at this time of year, but it’s really uncomfortable and can leave you feeling super frustrated, especially when you have loads of fun Spring activities planned.
In this article, we’ll share a few natural ways you can nip seasonal allergies in the bud so you can enjoy this beautiful weather that will soon give way to sultry summer days!
Essential oils are our go-to for absolutely everything!
Certain essential oils are especially wonderful at this time of year, like peppermint and eucalyptus which can help to open up your sinuses, relieve sinus pressure and pain, and leave you breathing a whole lot easier!
Add them to your diffuser and let their refreshing aroma work their magic!
Steam is wonderful for helping to open up the airways and loosen and thin out stubborn mucus. This will make it easier to expel so you can feel lighter and happier!
Turn your shower to hot at the end, keep the water off your body and inhale deeply for at least 5 minutes. Add some essential oils to your shower floor to enhance this process.
You can also steam over a bowl, but make sure you do this safely and don’t burn yourself.
Everything you eat has an impact on your allergies.
For example, dairy and sugar will only increase mucus and inflammation, while leafy greens, fish, nuts, seeds and anti-inflammatory spices like turmeric will help to clear up irritation and leave you feeling healthy and energetic.
Try this delicious golden milk, a powerful anti-inflammatory elixir guaranteed to fight pain-causing inflammation as well as dry up mucus. Drink one to two cups each day.
Considering that our bodies are primarily made up of water, it only makes sense that drinking enough water each day is important for all our bodily processes.
Water helps to keep your digestive system running smoothly so your body can effectively flush out toxins that may be contributing to your issues.
These tips are super simple to incorporate into your everyday life and they’ll help you manage seasonal allergies without the side-effects of prescription or over the counter meds. We hope you feel better soon!
