Histamine is a compound that is released by cells in response to injury and in allergic and inflammatory reactions, causing contraction of smooth muscle and dilation of capillaries.

Histamine is a chemical, which is involved in our local immune response as well as regulating physiological function in the gut, acting as a neurotransmitter. During the time of seasonal allergies, the body’s immune system recognizes pollen as an invader. Our body produces histamine, as a defense mechanism, which is what we call an “allergic reaction.” Histamine, an inflammatory chemical, attaches to the cells in our body and causes irritation. It is the deficiency of systemic proteolytic enzymes that triggers an allergic reaction as histamines gathers in the synapses.

An antihistamine serves to reduce or eliminate the effects brought on by histamine, a chemical mediator released during allergic reactions. Antihistamines are commonly used for allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, contact dermatitis, urticaria (hives), angioedema and pruritus (atopic dermatitis, insect bites).

Symptoms: Inflammation of the nasal passages, sinuses, and eyelids that causes sneezing, runny nose, watery, red, itchy eyes, and wheezing.

This “tea” can be added to a hot bath and soak for 20-30 minutes or dip a wash cloth in the tea once it has warmed to a temperature that is safe for your skin, and use as a compress.

1. I used to have very bad pollen allergies and regularly took over-the-counter and prescription antihistamine meds to stop the symptoms, but a friend convinced me to try taking LAVENDER instead. I filled ½ of an 00 capsule with Lavender and swallowed it. Just before doing this I was really suffering with my sinuses, had a runny nose and frequent sneezing. I was totally miserable. After taking that one capsule, the entirety of my symptoms disappeared, and that was that. I didn’t have to take another capsule. Lavender is a great antihistamine!!!
