Allergy season is here and in full effect in California. My youngest son and I seem to get it the worst out of everyone else. With the presence/onset of allergy symptoms, it’s hard to enjoy such a beautiful time outside.

Because I don’t like to be stuck indoors, I have tried a few things to help relieve some of that allergy discomfort. Here are my top 5 go-to remedies.

5 Ways to Relieve Allergy Discomfort

  1. Spring Clean The Home-

This may seem like a no brainer, but making sure to dust, vacuum and de-clutter your home can help reduce allergies and get rid of the nasty dust lingering in your home.

  1. Eat Spicy Foods-

To help keep things clear up during high pollen counts, add some horseradish, chili peppers or hot mustard to your foods. This will act as a natural, temporary decongestant.

  1. Try Essential Oils-

The best essential oils for allergies are lavender, Lemon and Peppermint. You can use these oils on their own or by combining all three.

  1. Where Spring Appropriate Clothing-

It may seem silly, but by keeping on sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat while outside it will help keep pollen from blowing into your eyes and making them itchy and watery.

  1. When Allergies Strike, Try Flonase-

Not only is this nasal spray easy to use, it offers relief from itchy water eyes, and gives you relief from nasal congestion, runny nose, and sneezing for 24 hours.
