How to help with the causes of hay fever

If spring arrives and you start to sneeze and cry with hay fever there are a few things you can do to help with the symptoms. Some of the main culprits that cause hay fever are pollens from grasses, trees and flowering plants. You can't get rid of this completely from the air, but you can help making sure you don't bring them into the home. 

Tricks

  • Once you wash your sheets, always dry them in the drier. Hanging sheets on the line at this time of year can act as a big pollen net that you end up sleeping on at night. 
  • Wash your hair before bed to help stop it acting as a big pollen sync. 
  • Opening windows in a bedroom is always lovely, however if you can leave the curtains shut while the room airs they will catch some of the pollen coming into your room. And don't forget to vacuum the curtains a little more regularly at this time of year. 
  • Eucalyptus drops are also lovely to use when cleaning at this time of year. They are super fresh and help with blocked stuffy noses.
