April Showers Bring May Flowers…and Allergies!

Ease the Symptoms of Allergy Season with Your Favorite Wedderspoon Products

Spring is in full swing…and so is allergy season! If you and your family are experiencing common spring allergy symptoms like coughing, sneezing or itchy eyes and throat, know you are not alone in the struggle! Though spring brings the beauty of blooming nature and warmer weather, it also brings those pesky seasonal allergies that may feel unavoidable. But, the good news is, the symptoms of allergies are manageable. While there are plenty of allergy pills and other treatments on the market, many of them are filled with lengthy ingredients lists and chemicals you may prefer to limit in your household. But don’t fret - there are more natural ways to tackle allergy season. In fact, you can tame some of the symptoms with Wedderspoon products you likely already have in your pantry.


How so, you may wonder? Let’s start with the most obvious…what we’re best known for: our Manuka Honey. Because of its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, Manuka Honey can help soothe some of the common symptoms associated with allergies. Take a spoonful of Manuka Honey each day to help with your symptoms. And, if you’re traveling, stock up on our Manuka Honey On the Go so that you can conveniently continue to combat allergy symptoms while out of town. They don’t call Manuka Honey a superfood for nothing! The uses of Manuka Honey are truly endless, so make sure you’re stocked up!


Our Propolis & Manuka Honey Throat Spray, available in three flavors - Manuka Honey, Lemon & Ginger and Chamomile & Mint - can also improve allergy symptoms. Our throat sprays are alcohol-free, providing a gentle but soothing effect on the throat, which is commonly irritated during allergy season. They are nutrient-rich, enriched with organic flaxseed glycerin, which is known especially for its soothing properties. Propolis & Manuka Honey Throat Sprays are convenient to use at home, or keep in your car or work bag for on the go relief.


If a sore and irritated throat or cough are symptoms you commonly experience during allergy season, we’ve got more good news for you. Our Organic Manuka Honey Drops are another product you need to add to your allergy season toolkit. Made using our time-tested recipe, these drops soothe the throat and also offer an added immunity boost. Individually wrapped, these drops are convenient to keep on hand in your purse or in your children’s backpacks. They’re available in five flavors - Lemon, Honey, Ginger, Eucalyptus and Fennel Cinnamon. And, they’re available in bulk in 60-count boxes at Costco (click here to locate your nearest location).


Other everyday ways you can improve the symptoms of allergies include changing your clothes after spending time outside, especially after doing things like gardening or mowing the lawn. Showering after this type of activity can also help, as it removes allergy irritants. When pollen counts are high, or when the weather is dry and has been without rain for a while (which washes away pollen), it can be helpful to keep windows and doors to your home and car closed when possible. Doing regular sinus rinses and running air purifiers in your home can also improve the symptoms of allergies.
With these recommendations on hand, we hope you make the most of the warmer weather and enjoy spending time outdoors without fear of pesky allergies!
