Allergy season has arrived! Of course, there are over-the-counter medicines that can help relieve your symptoms but there are also a bunch of natural ways to get rid of your allergies. What’s more, you can do it in the comfort of your own home…because who wants to go outside and start sneezing?

Green tea. It’s great in capsule, drop or liquid form! Green tea is a natural antihistamine so it will help reduce your allergy woes. Plus, if you drink a warm cup of green tea it will ease any itchy throat pain.

Cayenne pepper or hot ginger. Clear your sinuses by eating hot foods like cayenne pepper or hot ginger. The spices will instantly drain your nasal congestion.

Nasal rinses. Flush out everything trapped inside your nose for more comfort. You definitely won’t be stuffed up after a nasal rinse.

Change your diet. Eat foods that are high in quercetin, which is an antioxidant and natural antihistamine. Foods that contain a lot of quercetin include apples, onions, grapes, leafy veggies, etc. Incorporate more of these foods into your diet to help with your allergies. It’s also good to eat foods that are high in vitamin C as this is also a powerful antihistamine. You can also take vitamin C supplements.
