Spring is here and unfortunately so is allergy season. Rather than succumb to the itchy/watery eyes, runny nose, and general feeling of lousiness, I am fighting seasonal allergens head on this year with three natural remedies: lemon, raw apple cider vinegar, and local honey. I also still keep my favorite tissues, Scotties, closeby for particularly bad days.


My three part daily regimen to ward off seasonal allergies includes mixing fresh lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of local honey, and 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar into 1 cup of water. Theses three items are powerful and natural ways to help decrease allergies.

  • Lemons contain natural antihistamines from their high vitamin C content. They also also have antibiotic properties which gives the immune system a healthy boost.
  • Local honey is another effective way to reduce allergy symptoms. When you consume local honey each day, you are also ingesting local pollen which overtime may reduce your sensitivity to this allergen.
  • Raw organic apple cider vinegar aids in the reduction of mucous production while also cleansing the lymphatic system. It is important to only use raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar that contains “the mother”. This brown sediment present at the bottom of the bottle is a live collection of nutrient rich bacteria which aids is immune support and many other health benefits.

Scotties Facial Tissues by Royale are also essential in my household during allergy season. These super soft tissues are available in 3-ply or 3-ply with aloe for layers of comfort. They are also dedicated to sustainability and environmental protection through their responsible forestry and tree planting initiatives.

    Right now I use prescription meds and Benadryl. This time of year is rough with allergies and asthma.

    I use over the counter medicines to help me with my allergies, and we keep the windows closed, and try not to track in pollen from outside.

  3. Donna A. says

    I don’t like to take otc drugs if I can help it. The lemon,honey and vinegar sounds like something I would like to try.

    I usually try the allergy relief sprays that you can get at the drugstore, they do seem to help some. Thank you.

  5. elizabeth miller says

    I try using saline spray but usualy end up on claritin. It seems to not be working as good as it used to.

  6. Amy C. says

    My son is suffering from allergies now. He’s taking several things, along with eye drops. My allergies flair up from time to time also. I’m usually trying to take something after the fact…when I’m already miserable.

    I have to take allergy meds for my seasonal allergies and I also use an allergy nasal spray and saline spray.

  8. Chrissy says

    I usually use Claritin when my seasonal allergies flare up but I’ve been fortunate to have less flare ups recently due in large part I believe to eating more locally sourced fruits and veggies.

  9. Starla says

    Ahh, how crazy! I absolutely love Bragg’s too! It’s so multi functional and such a great product. I find that allergy pills will help, I don’t always enjoy taking tons of meds. Alternative ways to help are so great. I also love keeping an air purifier in my home!

  10. Laurajj says

    I try to keep the windows closed when it gets really bad, and sometimes take something for it if I cannot stand it anymore. LOL

  11. Barbara Montag says

    To treat our allergies we keep our windows closed and use an air purifier with a hepa filter.

  14. jberry says

    This is the first year I’ve had REAL allergy problems and am still struggling. I am trying your items, paying close attention to my diet, sorrowfully avoiding my to favs, dairy & nuts.

  15. Nannypanpan says

    I used to take a lot of medication when I was younger and probably outside more. Now I usually need tissues and eye drops

  16. Kenya F says

    Since I don’t get allergies too bad I usually just take benadryl. If my eyes are itchy I wet paper and put it over my eyes.

  17. Tina W says

    I use allergy medicine year round, but in spring I vacuum and dust more often to try to keep the pollen out of the house.

  18. Margaret Smith says

    With allergy meds mostly. I also like to take showers after being outdoors and put clean clothes on. That seems to help a bit.

  19. ELIZABETH C. says

    I don’t have allergies but my hubby does. He doesn’t like taking any medications so he will deal with it when his allergies pop up !!

  20. Debbi Wellenstein says

    I do not have any seasonal allergies. My husband suffers greatly-he takes over the counter allergy medicine.

  21. Jaclyn Reynolds says

    Right now, I don’t take anything. But I avoid being outside if the air quality is really bad. 2 weeks ago it was severe.

  22. Denise B. says

    We don’t suffer from allergies; but I do, occasionally, get the hives that I take antihistamines for.

  23. Laurie Emerson says

    I use Benadryl but to be honest it does not work as well as I wish it would. My allergies just about take over everything in my life. I am going to try your daily regimen!

  24. Karen A. says

    I’ve given up on treating mine. I’ve had sinus surgery, used nasal sprays, used a neti pot, taken both prescription and over the counter medications. Finally went to an allergist who suggested that I get allergy shots but I’m not quite ready for that. I plan to move in May and am hoping maybe my allergies will get better when I get away from my current living conditions. If not, I guess it will be the shots.

  25. Celeste Herrin says

    I use Zyrtec and essential oils. The essential oils really do seem to help. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!

  26. says

    I am going to need to give this a shot! Seasonal allergies are killing me. We have recently embarked on a family challenge to trade driving for biking in our town. It has been transformational but all the bike trails and streets are beautifully tree lined and I think the pollen is giving me a run for my money.
