Home Remedies For Allergies

Tired of allergy symptoms ruining your day. Well I have some tips and tricks on what you can do to help with prevention in having a day ruined by allergy symptoms.



What better way to support local businesses, by buying honey made by local bee keepers. Try local farmers markets, or check your local grocery store. Usually the label will have "Local" or your states name on the bottle. And this is as simple as a spoonful a honey a day. But if honey is not your favorite, try adding to tea, oatmeal or yogurt. As long as, you are getting honey in your daily diet, you will be allowing your body to become immune to the pollen in your area.



All you need is an essential oil diffuser, and essential oils, simple as that. Now, if you are aware of how essential oils work, know that there are some for use on the body, and some for use in a diffuser. This difference is key, because using essential oils meant for a diffuser will cause a reaction to your skin. Now, essential oils meant for allergies include, lavender, eucalyptus, lemon, and peppermint. These essential oils will help with inflammation, clear sinuses, and release congestion. For an added therapy boost, have your essential oil by your bed, the closer to you, the more you will breath in, and the more benefit you will get from your essential oil diffuser.



We all love a nice cup of tea at the end of the day. Now chamomile, is recognized as the natural histamine of the world. Just a cup or two of chamomile tea a day, can help you obtain immunity to your allergies. Even better, put a spoonful of some local honey in your tea, for an extra boost of immunity.



Thats right, take a shower and wash your face. Every time you go outside, you inadvertently bring in small particles of the outside world in with you. And those small particles, can include allergens. Your clothes, shoes, hair and skin, are virtually covered with everywhere you have been. So yes, shower and rid your body of all those allergens. Especially if you have spent the day outside, you really want to wash your body of all those allergen impurities.



This is most important of them all, knowing what you are allergic to, will help tremendously. Download your local weather app, or check with local news station, for pollen and allergen count. This will allow you to know if going outside is optimal, and allows you to prepare.

Nobody likes allergies, but knowing how to remedy and reduce your allergy symptoms are always helpful.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
