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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
