5 Home Remedies For Summer Allergies

by Dan D. Owner and marketing manager at Sparky Carpet Clean

As the weather warms up, pollen is carried by the wine and allergies are on the increase also. Allergies can negatively affect your daily life. Most people that have allergy issues usually look forward to May which brings an end to the sniffling, watery eyes and sneezing.


Some of the causes of these allergies are summer pollen, bee allergies, mold, and dust. Dust from the house or office can come from the carpet. That's where most of the dust stays. Dust can cause a lot of allergies such as sneezing, coughing, asthmatic seizures, etc.


If you have these allergies, it is important to seek the aid of carpet cleaning services to clean your carpet. You need to get a carpet cleaning company in Baton Rouge to provide you with such services. Also, if you use a rug in your home or office, you should also get rug cleaning services to do the dusting and the cleaning of your rug properly. Apart from a clean house, there are also some homemade remedies for allergies including:


Honey: local or raw honey can be used as a treatment for allergies because they have wide samplings of local pollen which is in the body of the bees that produce it. It helps to lessen or prevent the symptoms of allergies. When you expose your system to tiny amounts of pollen from local flowers, your immune system becomes less active. Honey consists of complex Carbohydrate along with simple sugar.


Neti Pot: neti pot could be foreign, but it is becoming a fast remedy for allergies. This treatment involves rinsing your nasal cavity with salt and water solution. It flushes out allergies instantly. In a pot, put a mixture of warm water and salt then lean your head to one side, and pour it into one of your nostrils until it comes out of the other nostril.


Bathing in a Hot Shower: a hot shower can heal sinuses and clear nasal passage. It also helps to remove allergies from your skin and hair after spending time outside especially if you have been working in the garden. It is also advisable to bath immediately you come back from work or an outdoor event. It is important also to change the clothes you wore.


Essential Oils: this is another great treatment to try. It's usually extracted from the leaves of eucalyptus trees. It has inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. The vapor from the oil provides a menthol-like sensation that makes breathing easier. Add a few drops of the oil to a bowl of hot water, then inhale.


Spices and Vinegar: some of these spices include turmeric, cinnamon, licorice root, onions, garlic, ginger, horseradish, hot peppers, and hot mustard. They help relieve inflammation and also ease breathing. They contain sulfur, quercetin and also have anti-inflammatory properties. They also act as bronchodilators opening up your airways. For the vinegar, apple cider vinegar is good when it comes to allergies. It helps boost the immune system. Apple cider vinegar is also rich in magnesium and potassium.
