GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Now that spring is in full bloom, so is the season of sneezing! Allergies and other irritations make this time of year miserable for some people. Before you raid the medicine cabinet, consider some natural remedies from WOTV 4 Women wellness expert Michele Fife.
Using a neti pot cleans out the nasal cavities. You can use it for sinus or allergy relief, but it’s gentle enough to do every day. You can get a neti pot at most drug stores and health food stores or order one online.
Oils are a great way to boost moisture and act as a barrier for allergens, dust, and other irritants. Put a few drops of Nasya oil in your nose or use your finger to apply a bit of sesame oil inside your nose.
If moisture is a problem, use drying herbs like cinnamon. Make a tea out of honey, turmeric, cardamom, and almond milk to soothe a sore throat.
