Allergies affect us all year long. But, before you reach for the over the counter medication for relief from a runny nose, itchy watery eyes, sinus pressure, and fatigue from allergies. Reach for a cup of herbal tea instead. The herbs provide a natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory effect to help relieve your allergy symptoms. They are also an excellent way to keep your body hydrated.
Most herbal teas will have one or more allergy fighting ingredients. They are a blend of different ingredients that produce a wonderful allergy fighting elixir. Below are just a few of our herbal teas that we recommend can help you feel better.
Rooibos tea contains bioflavonoids that can block allergy-causing histamines.
Green tea can help fight the sneezing, coughing, itchy watery eyes from a cold and allergies.
Yerbe Mate tea contains natural caffeine and produces corticosteroids, which act as an anti-inflammatory towards allergens.
Peppermint tea works as a decongestant with some mild antibacterial properties.
Ginger Root tea works as an antihistamine as well as an anti-inflammatory. It is also full of amazing healing properties.
Turmeric tea works as an anti-inflammatory and can also improve brain function, ease joint pain, and boost your immune system.
Eucalyptus Elixir tea can help loosen phlegm and blocked nasal passages.
Rosehips tea can reduce histamine production, altering the bodies allergic responses.
Allergies are relentless, exhausting, and in some cases, they can actually affect your mood. Keep your windows closed to prevent pollen from building up inside your home. Shower every night before bed because pollen collects on your hair, body, and clothes throughout the day, and of course, have a cup of herbal tea. It can help alleviate your allergies and brighten your mood.
Peace, Love & Tea
