A Tea Recipe for Seasonal Allergies

Do allergies keep you from enjoying the beautiful spring weather the way you would like to? 

Sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes can all be signs of seasonal allergies. I feel for people that cannot enjoy this beautiful weather because they are so miserable with allergies.

Here’s a simple tea to relieve your symptoms.

A Tea Recipe For Seasonal Allergies

 Ingredients

2 parts Nettle Leaf
2 parts Eyebright
1 part Elder Flowers
1 part Yarrow
1 part Comfrey Leaf (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine the herbs in a container.  
  2. Bring water to a boil and place herbs in the water(1-2 tsp. herbal mixture per cup of water).
  3. Remove pan from burner and cover.  
  4. Let steep 15-20 minutes, or overnight for a stronger infusion.  
  5. Strain herbs.  
  6. Drink hot or cold. 

For adults, drink 1 cup 3 times a day – this will help the herbs work in your system continually and bring relief throughout the day.
For children, consume half the amount as the adult recommendation.

Note: 1 part to 2 parts herb means if you combined 1/4 a cup of yarrow and elder flowers, you would add 1/2 cup of eyebright and nettle leaf.  Mix these herbs in a container and keep on hand to make a tea as often as needed.

To buy good quality herbs in bulk, I purchase from the Bulk Herb Store and Mountain Rose Herbs.        
(If one company doesn’t carry an herb, I buy from the other.)

    Any allergy relief tips for children? My daughter is really suffering. She is 5 1/2 (going on 30) and suffers bloody noses and constant congestion. I believe the bloody nose is brought on by lots and lots of sniffing. I considered bee pollen but I’m not sure if it’s safe for her age. Any suggestions you have would be great! By the way, we are in Sacramento, CA just to give you an idea of our environment.

    Children can drink this tea to help with allergies. For her age, I would recommend about 1/4 cup 3 times a day.
    Do you know if her allergies are seasonal – does she suffer only at certain times of the year, or is it all the time? If it’s all the time, it’s most likely from a food allergy. Some kids are sensitive to sugar, white flour, wheat, peanut butter, etc. and simply cutting the food out makes a new child! Do you have a local naturopathic doctor or a health food store that does food allergy tests?
