Allergies (Allergic Rhinitis)

Herbal Remedies for Allergy Season

Please keep in mind, that we are not giving medical advice in this blog.




Allergic rhinitis is inflammation caused by allergens that affects the nasal passages, sinuses, ears, and throat. Also known as hay fever, it occurs when an allergic person inhales an allergen to which they are sensitive such as pollen, dust, mold, or flakes of skin from certain animals. Symptoms may include sneezing, congestion, itchy nose and sore throat.


There are two types of allergies. Seasonal allergy sufferers may develop symptoms during spring, and/or fall. Perennial allergic rhinitis, which is year-around, is caused by indoor allergens such as house dust, pet dander, dust mites, and indoor molds.

As an antioxidant, astringent, antimicrobial, and analgesic, Stinging Nettle can reduce allergy-related inflammation without producing any of the side-effects that come with the use of pharmaceuticals. Fresh nettle is available in spring. Cooking the leaves will remove their stinging effects, and you can add them to your salads, soups, or stews, like most other green leafy vegetables. You can also use it in its dried form to brew nettle tea.


Used traditionally to treat colds, the flu, and fevers, yarrow can also be a useful remedy against allergic rhinitis. Its anti-microbial and anti-catarrhal actions make it an ideal herb for the respiratory system, and this natural healer also treats sinusitis and dust allergies. You can take yarrow in tea form or as a tincture.
