Home Remedies for Nasal Allergy

There is no immediate cure for nasal allergy but you can control it by taking adequate preventive measures. But most of us seek medication for relief, as there is a wide variety of allergy reliefs available in the form of nasal sprays, antihistamines, and decongestants. Though these medications provide immediate relief, we are least aware of the side effects that claim our health.

So, it is always better to opt for home remedies and practice yoga to get relief from nasal allergy. 

Here are some of the home remedies that might help you in getting relief from it:

  • One of the best ways to cure yourself is nasal irrigation. It is a personal hygiene practice in which warm saline water floods the nose cavity with the help of a syringe or neti pot, which helps to clear out excess mucus and moisturize the cavity.

  • Make a solution of boiled minced grape fruit and lemon and add to it some honey, and drink it 2-3 times a day. This helps in curing hay fever.

  • To get relief from nasal congestion boil some chamomile and inhale the fumes.
