My Natural Allergy Remedies

3.7.2018


Without fail, every spring my 10-year old son Jackson gets slammed with allergies and I have to pull out my natural allergy remedies. The poor guy gets puffy eyes, insane amounts of boogers and the sneezes don’t stop. We’ve learned that Jackson is highly sensitive to oak pollen and in our Central Florida town there’s no escape from it. This year has been the worst and it’s even irritated my sinuses and covered our cars in a yellow dusting.

My Top 5 Natural Allergy Remedies

I’m not one to use medicine, I prefer the FARM-acy and toughing it out. When allergy season hits, I stock up on products + recipes that are gentle, natural and help us get through it. Here’s my go-to natural allergy remedies and products that we use:

 

My Top 4 Natural Allergy Remedies | SimpleGreenSmoothies.com

 

1. Natural Eye Drops:

Unlike most over the counter eye drops, Similasa Allergy Eye Relief is formulated with natural active ingredients that stimulate the body’s natural allergy defenses. We keep the eye drops in the fridge and use as needed throughout the day.

2. Homeopathic Allergy Relief Tablets:

My friend Kathleen (the same one who got me into Bieler’s Broth) has gotten me into homeopathic medicine to treat many ailments… including allergies. The Boiron Sabadil Allergy Relief Homeopathic tablets are our go-to brand and have helped us out a ton.

3. Lemon Honey Ginger Tonic:

I always keep a jar of my DIY Lemon Honey Ginger Tonic in my fridge. This simple recipe works wonders for cold and flu season AND allergy season. You really can’t go wrong with it! You add a scoop to a cup of warm water and it soothes an itchy throat and reduces inflammation.  I recommend using local raw honey that has been harvested in the same season as your allergy flare up.

4. Allergy Fighting Smoothie:

We are all about a daily smoothie and this recipe is chock full of inflammation healers and allergy fighters. Again, if you can find local raw honey that was harvested in the same season as your allergy flare up, you’ll get the best results.
2 apples, green
1 cup of pineapple, frozen
2 teaspoon of local raw honey
1 to 2 cups of water
1 teaspoon grated ginger

5. Hot Showers + Laundry:

It’s important to keep the house clean and pollen free. We do that by sweeping and vacuuming as often as possible. Jackson also takes a shower when he gets home from school. I’ll throw his clothes in the wash and we say adios pollen. I should probably make the rest of us do that as well! We’re a shoe-free home, which means we drop our shoes by the front door. We don’t wear them inside the house and that helps with dirt, pollen and anything else that can be brought in through our shoes.

 


My Top 4 Natural Allergy Remedies | SimpleGreenSmoothies.comTypically doing a combination of these natural allergy relief things gets us through the 2-week allergy season. Yet if he has a severe flare up and this isn’t helping enough, I have given him Claritin. Yet the key for me is exhausting all of my natural options before using something like that.

    Hi, I love smoothies but unfortunately I’m allergic to dark green or cruciferios vegtables andv don’t tolerate fructose much . I’m at a loss what to use for smoothies .
    My allergies are all year round .

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hi Margaret! That’s very tricky. I would speak to your healthcare provider and nutritionist to put together a plan that’s going to work for you and not trigger any of your allergies.

  2. Chris says:

    How long does the honey lemon ginger mason jar stay good for ?

  3. Janet says:

    For allergies, we rely on essential oils. A drop of Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oils taken in some water or a veggie cap help is with our allergies. You need to ensure that you select pure oils. We use doTERRA and even my husband’s allergy symptoms have improved.

  4. My neti pot is my savior during allergy season… and cold season… and any other season that messes with my sinuses. Believe me, it takes a little getting used to running water up your nose (basically drowning yourself) but once you get used to it you won’t know how you lived without it, at least if you have bad sinus problems like I do. On the nights when my sinuses are blocked up (be it from allergies or cold) I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have my neti pot. Nasal sprays help but they don’t get up inside your head and wash it out the way a neti pot does.

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hey John,

      Thanks for sharing about your neti pot! I have not tried that one yet and have heard a lot of good things about it!

  5. Something that really helped with my allergies, which isn’t really a treatment or anything like that, was switching from a bagless to a bagged vacuum. Not only does it not throw dust into the air as much as the bagless one did (plus you don’t have to dump the canister and put a bunch of dust into the air in the process) but it seems to get rid of the dust/pollen/etc better than the bagless one did. When I used to vacuum before it didn’t seem to make a difference to my allergies but now the difference is very noticeable after I vacuum.

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Susan,

      Thank you so much for sharing. That’s probably something I really need to try. We don’t have air conditioning, so windows are open all year and I’m vacuuming up pollen and probably just throwing it back in my face. I’ll let you know if I see an improvement!

  6. Amanda says:

    Love this article! I have eye allergy and this article is very helpful for me. I like the info provided by you. Thanks a lot for sharing.

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      YAY! So happy you found this article helpful, Amanda! And wishing you an easy allergy season!
