This year, it seems, has been one of the worst for allergies in a long time. Over the counter and prescription antihistamines can help, but they do have side effects, so herbal treatments can be very beneficial. They do not cause drowsiness or over-drying and irritating of the sinuses.
Aromatherapy is a good way to start. Lavender is a very soothing oil and can be good for sinuses. Also, peppermint oil has a way of clearing out the sinuses when you're stopped up. You can just rub a little under your nose and you'd be amazed at how well it works. If you are concerned with drying out nasal passages, these oils can be a beneficial alternative.
Natural remedies contain supplements that will nourish the respiratory system by supporting the lungs and sinuses, strengthening the bronchial system and clearing excess mucus. It works much better than OTC or prescription antihistamines since there are no side effects.
