Our friends at ProNews 7 did a story about allergy season in the Texas Panhandle.

However, if you suffer from allergies you can find remedies that don’t cost you and arm and a leg.

According to iVillage:

Iced Tea is full of:

antioxidants that squash production of immunoglobulin E, a key symptom-trigger for spring allergy sufferers. Steep loose or bagged tea for at least three minutes to maximize the antioxidants in each glass; then drink 24 ounces daily for best results, suggests endocrinologist Daniel Nadeau, M.D., co-author of The Color Code.

Shampoo Your Eyelashes

Suds up your lids and lashes with a dollop of baby shampoo twice daily, and you’ll cut the redness, itching, watering and puffiness by as much as 90 percent, say researchers at Brooklyn’s Long Island Hospital. “Baby shampoo gently removes sticky pollen before it can work its way into your eyes,” explains Clifford Bassett, M.D., medical director of Allergy and Asthma Care of New York.

Local, raw honey. Yum! Who doesn’t like the idea of taking a spoonful of honey daily!?! Local, raw honey has the greatest ability to reduce allergies or get rid of them all together. If you know what it is that causes your allergies to flare up, your body can build a tolerance to it if you consume local honey from that specific plant source.
FrugalZeitgeist.com suggests diluting Apple Cider Vinegar in water and drinking twice per day helps combat allergies.

So if you are tired of spending a ton of money each week during allergy season, try a few of these ideas.

If you suffer from allergies what are some of your home remedies that cure your ailing sinuses, nose, head and eyes?
