I am always on the lookout for a solution to the dreaded hayfever, preferably without recourse to drugs which we can’t take half the time because of the ubiquitous maize starch and lactose or liquids with ethanol in.
I do like the Haymax stuff you put around your nostrils. The pollen gets trapped in the waxy material and much less gets up your nose to trigger the histamine reaction we all know and hate. I use the Pure one (of course) which is just sunflower oil and beeswax on my pot label, anyway – always check in case of changes. It would be pretty easy to make your own version or just use beeswax if necessary.
And here’s another one that looks promising: NasalAir Guard Purifiers. These are tiny little filters that fit into your nostrils so pollen and other respiratory-upsetting substances are filtered in much the same way as an ir purifier you sit next to.
Ok, so they may take a little getting used to, but I thought I would pass them on as an idea for when you have hayfever keeping you awake at night, when you’re on a picnic with the kids or perhaps when you’re doing your gardening. Pop ’em in and at least cut down the potential of your usual reaction. I haven’t tried them myself yet so let me know how you get on with them if you do so we can pass that knowledge on.
Finally, don’t forget the Window Screens I told you about last year – some of you thought they were fab.
