1. Neti pots or Saline Rinse
Neti pots are great because they cure natural allergies the best. This literally is a shower for your nasal passages and it’s with a sterile saline solution so it’s pretty safe. This will flush out the allergies clogging you up and loosen your mucus. Many people swear by the Neti pots and/or saline rinses.
What you will want to do: Take a teaspoon of salt and a pinch of baking soda. Mix those ingredients with warm water in a glass. The saline solution is ready for you. You can pour it in the neti pot and then tilt it to your head. Pour the solution into one nostril. Allow the solution to come out the other nostril by taking a breath from your mouth. Repeat for the other nostril. Repeat once a week if you continue to have allergies.
