Allergy Season Tea
Allergies often develop when the body's immune system overreacts to an external irritant such as pollen, insect stings, certain plants, or internal substances such as chemicals and foods. Long term, allergies are treated with herbs to reduce the body's oversensitivity and can bring relief to symptoms and reactions.
