Seasonal allergies begin to climb at an exponential rate in the spring. The weather is finally nice enough to be spending a substantial amount of time outside, but you have to weigh the risk of having a sneezing attack or red, irritated eyes. This is worse if you’ve been dry throughout the winter, because your body will naturally produce more mucus to protect your body. So, in a sense, you could dramatically reduce the symptoms of spring allergies by taking care in the winter, but what do you do now that allergy season has already arrived? A few key things: get out your neti pot and rinse daily, get really regular with rinsing your eyes every day (with rose hydrosol or a triphala eyewash), and incorporate herbs that will help give your respiratory system an immediate line of defense.
Allergy-Free is a springtime tonic that can be used by anyone, but is especially good for those who need to keep their seasonal allergies in check. It uses nettle (a bitter herb that soothes allergies), tulsi (an Ayurvedic herb that is unparalleled when it comes to respiratory health), honey for pulling excess mucus out of the body, and local bee pollen for helping to ramp up your body’s defense to the plants in your area.
