Here Are Six Amazing Herbal Remedies For Allergies

1. Nettle

The nettle leaf acts as nature’s very own antihistamine and anti-inflammatory agent. It can be taken in form of a tea.

2. Elderflower

The elderflower is another remedy that does wonders by clearing up a blocked sinus. It also calms the respiratory system when it gets inflamed due to allergic reactions. Elderflower can be taken in the form of tea and juice.

3. Green Tea

The antioxidant compound in green tea may help the body by preventing an immune response to many allergens. It has also anti-inflammatory properties, which help in preventing viral infections.

4. Rooibos Tea

Quercetin, the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant plant pigment found in rooibos tea has anti-allergen potential. It helps in stabilizing ‘mast cells’ or immune cells that trigger allergic reactions.

5. Hibiscus Tea

Known for its high content of Vitamin C, Hibiscus tea is said to be good for the immune system. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties which help in treating skin allergies.

6. Lavender Oil

This can be used on irritated, itchy skin that needs immediate relief. It also works as a stress-reducing agent. Spraying a bit of lavender oil on pillows can soothe the skin and also lead to good sleep.
