Most people celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of the warmer seasons. Who doesn’t like sunshine, time spent outdoors and lazy day barbeques, right?

But for the one in five people who suffer from hay fever, this time of year is spent waiting for the inevitable stuffy nose or first bout of watery eyes that indicates the beginning of hay fever.

“Hay fever” is actually a misleading term for this common condition. Not only is hay fever not caused by hay, it doesn’t cause a fever.

Seasonal hay fever is usually caused by an allergic sensitivity to airborne mold spores or to pollens from grass, trees and weeds. What happens is your immune system identifies a harmless airborne substance – usually pollen – as harmful.

As a reaction, your body creates antibodies which signal your immune system to release chemicals such as histamine into your bloodstream. This causes a reaction that leads to the signs and symptoms of hay fever.

The long list of hay fever symptoms include a runny nose and nasal congestion, watery, itchy or red eyes, sneezing, coughing, itchy nose, a postnasal drip and fatigue.

Antihistamine tablets are often used to treat the symptoms of hay fever, but they can cause their own set of problems. Side effects can include a dry mouth, dizziness, drowsiness and more.

Botanica Hayfever Gel is the natural alternative: a natural, non-toxic formula which effectively treats the symptoms of hay fever. It contains natural active ingredients like quercetin, bromelain and vitamin C. The topically applied gel delivers these ingredients to the mast cells in your nose. The hay fever gel works by affecting the nasal mast cell’s ability to produce histamine.

It’s trusted by Kiwis as a safe and natural way to effectively treat hay fever. Try it risk free – we offer a money back guarantee. This is what our customers have to say:

“I’ve been using Hayfever Gel for 4 seasons now. I’ve got several of my friends on to it and we all rave about it.” Trish, Auckland, New Zealand.

“I don’t get hayfever any more.” Charlie H. Takaka, New Zealand

“The Hayfever Gel is working really well. Have to admit, after trying a lot of different things from the dreaded bee pollen to antihistamines, nothing seems to work…but the last few days we’ve been trialing the Hayfever Gel and both Barnaby and I are really impressed with the results.” Bridget Stroud, New Zealand

Other handy tips and tricks to keep hay fever at bay are to avoid using window fans that can draw pollens and molds into the house, wear glasses or sunglasses when outdoors to minimise the amount of pollen getting into your eyes and vacuum your home regularly to reduce the amount of airborne spores or pollens in your home.
