To Those Herbalist Out There~

Dear Herbalist {or homemakers that know good remedies} among my readers~

The week has been in very fair weather as of late, and my allergies have really flared up {I think it's also my cat's dander:p}. I prefer using natural alternatives compared to prescription {which I will probably have to obtain any way}. 
I did want to ask you though if you have any suggestions as to what natural home remedies will soothe the sneezing and runny nose? 

I did a little research on the internet and saw that locally-grown honey does not help! I was pretty surprised about that!:) 

I also found out that a peppermint oil steam might help.I think after a few hours {I just went to the dentist for a cleansing}, I will take the Beeutiful Probiotics.

Many thanks,
The Young Lady {NOT} Enjoying the Springtime Garden  


  1. Grace - I'm not sure, but I know this kind of honey has stopped me from getting colds in the past. :) Not sure how it'd work for allergies...

  2. Peppermint steams (or just rubbing a few drops of peppermint oil on your chest at night (be sure to use a carrier oil so it isn't straight peppermint)) does work. We have had the same thing going around here and have been doing a lot of those. That helps your breathing at night... for the runny nose, get a Neti Pot. Those are the BEST things in the world... absolutely work like a charm! :)

    HTH!! Love ya lots and wishing you to get well! Sarah

  3. Dearest Grace, I have heard that peppermint works and also I have heard that Chamomile Tea works. You just drink about 2 cups of Chamomile tea a day and it should help!
    I do hope that you feel better soon, dear friend!!!

  4. Grace,
    I hope you feel better soon.

  5. I don't know of any remedies to give you I do hope you feel better.

  6. Aww poor you! I'm afraid I can be of no help when it comes to herbs. I only know how to cure sore throats. ;)

    I'll be e-mailing you soon - I'm sorry I haven't been updating you...things got a little busy this week. :D

  7. Hello, girls! Thanks so much for the advice and suggestions and encouragement! You are all the best! I'm getting better thank goodness; there were times yesterday where I would sneeze continuously!
    Today I am so much better!
    Thank you again!
    With much love,

  8. Well, at least you COULD sneeze.. I HATE it when your nose tingles but it just won't sneeze!!! I am glad you are getting better, though.. I forgot to mention -just for future reference since you are better now- that doing chamomile steams works really well.. Either use the chamomile flower (dried), or chamomile tea bags...

    Love, Sarah
