Seasonal allergy season is here, which means many families are struggling with respiratory issues and sinus pressure. If you are considering trying some natural treatment options, we are here to help! Take a look at some allergy relief home remedies, as well as some recommendations for natural allergy support supplements!

Air Filters & Masks

HEPA air filter

Preserving your indoor air quality is crucial for reducing the amount of allergens present in your home. Install HEPA air filters, buy an air purifier, and adjust your home’s humidity with either a humidifier or dehumidifier. When spending time outdoors, especially if you are doing yard work or chores, wear a filtered mask. This helps to block out those tiny pollen particles!

Home & Hygiene Tips

Here are a few more allergy relief tips to keep in mind for your house, pets, and clothes:

  • Avoid being outside when pollen counts are at their highest (morning, windy days, etc.)
  • Take off jackets and shoes immediately upon entering your house to limit tracking allergens inside.
  • Shower and change out of outside clothes to also reduce the amount of pollen circulating in the house.
  • Bathe your pets regularly if they spend any time outside.
  • Don’t line dry your laundry since pollen particles will cling to the clothes.

Nasal Rinse

One of the best allergy relief home remedies is a simple saline nasal rinse. Whether you use a Neti Pot or make your own solution, sinus irrigation will help to reduce congestion and allow you to breathe more easily. The solution is easy to make, with only 3 ingredients required– iodized salt, a little baking soda, and distilled water. Be sure to thoroughly clean the pot or nasal bulb after each use!

Steam Therapy

Something as simple as inhaling steam can provide instant relief for congested sinuses. You can take a hot shower or sit with your head over a bowl of steaming liquid and breathe in a little easier. You could also add peppermint or eucalyptus essential oils, which can further support your allergy relief efforts.
