My 9m/o son has really bad seasonal allergies. I took him to the park today and his eyes were so red and puffy. I dont want to give him allergy medicine unless i absolutly have to. Is there some kind of herbal remedy for allergies that i can give my son. Thanks

I found a recipes for an allergy tea, I would dilute the tea with at least half water when giving it to a child, I believe this recipe is for adults. Hope it helps!

Allergy Season Blend

Cool minty, citrus flavour to assist you with the discomfort associated

with allergy season.

1 part nettle

1 part peppermint

1 part spearmint

1 part yerba santa

1 part eyebright

1 pat lemongrass leaves

1 part calendula

1 part red clover

1 part lavender flowers

1 part fennel seeds

a pinch of stevia

Place all herbs in a tea ball or bag, put in your nicest or most favorite

cup or mug, and cover with boiling water. Steep for 10 minutes.

Remove tea ball or bag, and add sugar, honey, sweetener, milk,

cream or whatever, to taste.
