Dr. Oz was on the Today Show yesterday speaking about mediction-free solutions for allergies. He mentioned what everyone has figured out, that this is one of the worst allergy seasons. He suggested wearing sunglasses and a hat to block some of the pollen from your eyes and nose. Also using a Neti pot to rinse the pollen from your nose.
Here’s a couple of other suggestions using essential oils like Lavender, Roman Chamomile or Eucalyptus
- put a few drops on cotton balls or tissue and breathe in several times a day
- put 1-2 drops in your palm, rub together, then cup your hands over your nose and inhale the oils. You can do that several times a day as well.
- once or twice a day use a ceramic neti pot and a drop of either oil and rinse out your nose
