It is hard to believe that allergies are triggered in winter even without pollen in the air. This is true because of our cold-weather lifestyles. And even for allergies, there’s a tea for that.

While we are indoors, heaters make the air dry, mold builds up because of a lack of air circulation. All this can trigger allergies causing sneezing, congestion, and itchiness. Keeping your house clean, encouraging air circulation and a good saline spray can help ease allergies. And there is nothing like a warm cup of soothing tea to help you feel better.

Peppermint Tea

Each tea has different health benefits. But the common thing is “water”. Meaning you can’t enjoy a cup of tea if there is no water. So always drink lots and lots of water to flush out any toxins.
