For those who suffer from mild seasonal allergies and have not been on heavy allergy medications, this tincture may help bring welcome relief and build resistance. It contains dong quai (Angelica sinensis) as well as nettle root, herbs that have both natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory qualities. Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis) reduces congestion and secretions. It is good for itchy eyes, sneezing, and excess mucus. Red clover (Trifolium pratense) helps build the body’s resistance to allergies. Take just one to two tablespoons a day. Remember to be patient; herbal remedies generally take some time to manifest their full effects.
