Now that it’s officially spring, you may find that your allergies are also officially back. Here are a few helpful suggestions for reducing allergy symptoms in an environmentally-friendly fashion.

According to the local bee authorities, pollen from area bees is a great way to reduce allergies.

Bees travels throughout an area, collecting pollen from a variety of plants all throughout their travels. Local beekeepers say that the resulting pollen collection works like a gentle vaccine comprised of tiny samples of all the local plants that might be causing your drippy nose. They recommend eating a teaspoon of local pollen a day to combat allergy symptoms - you can even mix it into your morning smoothie! Look for your local beekeeper at the farmers market nearby.

Even sweeter, some say a spoonful a day of local honey will do the trick just the same!

The Neti Pot, or other similar nasal wash, is a handy at-home remedy that will leave your sinuses as clear as the blue spring sky!

The Neti Pot looks like a teapot, but instead of tea, brew a saline solution in the pot before inserting the spout into your nostril and tilting your head. The saline travels through your nasal passage, breaking down and releasing mucus. It’s a bit awkward and takes some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll find it’s worth the adjustment. Just remember to boil the water beforehand to kill any harmful bacteria from the tap source - and of course, wait for the water to cool down before using it!

You probably already have some apple cider vinegar in your cupboards right now, which makes it a very convenient treatment for allergies. According to the Earth Clinic, a couple of teaspoons a day will help reduce allergies. Mixing the apple cider vinegar into a tonic with honey and warm water is recommended, as the taste of it alone is not the most appealing.
