Hay Fever/ allergies are my mortal enemies. The slightest change in the atmosphere , dust, grass cutting, old clothes sometimes trigger this reaction from my body.
Sometimes I just buy an anti histamine and use that
But sometimes the bottle is empty and I am too miserable with sneezing to leave the house. I have tried some herbs sometimes they work not as quickly as antihistamine but they work. Here are some herbs to have on hand and try them out.
Tell me what are your natural cures for allergies.
Nettle is pretty good it saved my life from the worst attack ever
Ginger and honey works to break up chest congestion and loosen phlegm. It acts as a natural antihistamine.
Green tea blocks the production of histamine
Peppermint tea relieves nasal congestion.

I want to share with you some herbs for eczema, try calendula as a cream or as a tea. Strawberry leaves white oak bark as a wash. Burdock and sarasparilla (tea) and dandelion ( tea and a wash) . Milk thistle , comfrey, licorice root extract. Stinging nettle tea may bring relief. Prepare the tea and place on affected areas. Add turmeric to your diet.
Dairy products may cause eczema. Cutting back on dairy foods may bring quick relief. A diet with plenty of vegetables can sometimes heal the lesions or stop eczema outbreaks. These are all suggestions they are worth a try.
