Herbal Healing in Spring
Spring is full of the promise of good things to come, but it can also bring with it seasonal colds and hay fever. Avoid these by increasing your activity levels and using herbal remedies.
Hay Fever Remedies
Prepare for this seasonal allergy buster a couple of months ahead with infusions of herbs that have anti-histamine action, such as chamomile, elderflower, eyebright and golden seal. Their effect is cumulative so to benefit fully from this take them throughout the spring.
A drink of chamomile tea 2-3 times a day is particularly effective for easing inflammation caused by hay fever. If you use chamomile tea bags, save the bags after use and when coo, place one over each closed eyelid to soothe sore, itching eyes.
Steam inhalations of essential oils, such as chamomile, lavender, rose or lemon, are effective at receiving hay fever. Add 3-4 drops of a favourite oil or a blend of 2-3 drops to a bowl of hot water. Cover your head and bowl with a towel and inhale the vapours.
Drink a cup of chamomile tea two or three times a day to help ease the symptoms of hay fever. For more inspiration on spring healing, tap here > https://empress2inspire.blog/2021/02/18/daily-dose-of-nature-253/
