Supporting Springtime Challenges

Supporting Springtime Challenges

Springtime can bring challenges in the form of seasonal allergies. As the trees, grasses, and flowers start to bloom, they release pollen into the air, triggering allergic reactions in many individuals. Common symptoms of seasonal allergies include sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, itchy or watery eyes, and scratchy throat. Although living with seasonal allergies can be difficult, there are steps you can take that may help alleviate the impact of these symptoms.

Supplement Support

For those individuals experiencing more troublesome adverse effects or those desiring a more naturopathic approach to their allergies; The Apothecary has a variety of homeopathic and supplement options to recommend.

One such option is capsules with combinations of antihistamine like components. There has also been good success reported using homeopathic antigen drops to address the particular allergy involved. Nasal sprays and eye drops that may address those irritating allergy symptoms are also available.

  • Nasal Spray by Natural Creations (in-store only): Temporarily relieves coryza, sneezing, dryness, &/or post nasal drip.
  • Homeopathic Antigen Drops by Natural Creations — Allergy HP, Weed & Grass Antigen, and Tree Antigen (in-store only): Temporarily relieves symptoms associated with targeted allergen responses

Other Tips & Considerations

Essential Oil Support — Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint essential oils in a blend or individually may help open up the airways and support congestion.

  • Diffuse or add a few drops to a carrier oil and apply topically to the chest or back. Always dilute essential oil if applying topically
  • **When using essential oils with children, it’s always important to dilute them properly and use them in moderation

Nasal rinse — A process of flushing out the nasal passages with a saline solution. It’s a simple and natural way to support congestion and alleviate allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, and postnasal drip.

Watch pollen count — Pollen counts are highest in the early morning hours (between 5 am and 10 am). Visit for your local pollen forecast. On high pollen days, consider holding off on opening windows or spending time outdoors until later in the day. Keep in mind pollen levels may still linger in the evening, especially on dry, windy days.

Avoid extended allergen exposure — Take a shower and change clothes after spending time outside

Change furnace filters— Changing your furnace filter regularly is an important step in managing allergies and creating a healthy indoor environment
