Beating Those Hayfever Blues

Despite the cold and rain still making a sneaky appearance, it’s never too late to start preparing for the next season. Spring is looming and if you annually battle with itchy nostrils and raining eyes, then we might just have the solution for you. Here at Evergreen, we believe that it is vital to keep your hayfever at bay and whilst this may be tricky if you’re a severe-sufferer, there are ways to nip this irritating allergic reaction in the bud.

A. Vogel Pollinosan Hayfever Tablets

Pollinosan is a new homeopathic remedy that is designed to relieve the symptoms of hayfever and beat allergic reactions. It removes the toxins that are associated with the allergy, reduces sneezing, itchy eyes and blocked noses, and better yet, it is 100% gluten and sugar free, making it suitable for everyone.

A. Vogel Pollinosan Luffa Nasal Spray

Tablets aren’t the only things you can use to beat hay fever. If you’re not keen on swallowing tablets you can also use a nasal spray to help relieve symptoms. Luffa Nasal Spray is an amazing spray which has been a massive hit with customers who have shopped with us in store. This nasal spray works by cleansing the nasal passage, ridding it from pollen and other allergens including dust. It clears and thins the waste from the nose and sinus. It also moistens the mucus membranes. This spray is suitable for adults and children over the age of six.

Eucalyptus (Sinus Relief)

This doesn’t necessarily cure hay fever but it’s a great relaxation and sinus relief option. The aroma helps you to breathe easier and eucalyptus is a natural disinfectant that allows the nasal passage to become clearer. Soak for about 15-20 minutes for a calming, refreshing and therapeutic feeling. Free from paraffin’s, silicones, minerals and animal-derived ingredients, this product is dermatologically tested.
