Ragweed fall allergy relief inhalant in a jar is a great consideration for those whose allergies are going haywire right now.

What Causes Fall and Late Winter Allergies? 

American common ragweed or Ambrosia artemisiifolia

Ragweed is the biggest allergy trigger in the fall. Though ragweed pollen is released mostly with cool nights and warm days in August, it can last into September and October. About 75% of people allergic to spring plants also have reactions to ragweed.    

Why Consider Ragweed Pollen Allergy Relief?

Ragweed pollen can trigger allergic symptoms in many adults and children, particularly during summer and autumn. Why? Experts say the season is August to October around here and it’s worse on cool nights with warm and dry days.

Symptoms:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Blocked nose
  • Headaches
  • Itchy/drowsy eyes
  • Itchy throat

But luckily there are all-natural allergy remedies right at home that you can try! Did you know lavender oil and tea tree oil are the best essential oils to combat fall allergies like this?

So let’s check out this ragweed allergy relief inhalant in a jar with a pumpkin spice added to it based on our own liberties to be festive. You don’t have to do the same unless you want to. What’s even more awesome about this fall allergy relief inhalant is that it isn’t just helpful for those with fall ragweed allergies. It is also good for those who experience allergy symptoms in the late winter!

Here’s How to Make It:

You’ll Need:

  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 cup water, divided
  • 2 quality 3 oz jars with lids. Tureen jars have a great, distinctive look that will stand out on your bedroom side table, in your bathroom cabinet, or wherever else you might happen to store your allergy relief inhalant.
  • Tea tree and lavender essential oils. Feel free to consider some marjoram, peppermint, or other essential oil scents too if you’d like for ragweed allergy relief. Essential oils, particularly peppermint and eucalyptus, help those with allergies and sinus to clear their nasal passages that are stuffy and irritated due to their inflammatory agents, so this DIY ragweed fall allergy relief in a jar can also work great for sinus sufferers and sleep sufferers of those who snore. (Oh, and the snorers themselves too.)
  • Pumpkin spice scented fragrance oil.
  • Food coloring (optional). Consider maybe an orange coloring to go along with the pumpkin spice scent if you are so inclined to go festive.

Directions:

  • Heat 3/4 cup of water in a small pot or pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp of salt, and stir until the salt dissolves completely.
  • Slowly add the contents of the 2 packets of gelatin to the water, and stir until dissolved.
  • Remove the mixture from heat and add the remaining 1/4 cup of water.
  • Pour the liquid carefully into your two 3 ounce glass jars, then add the essential oils. Add 5 drops each of each oil in each jar.
  • Add a drop or two of food coloring too, if you’d like (just to make it a bit more visually interesting.)
  • Place the jars into your fridge to cool and solidify then cover with a lid.

Finally, Here’s How to Use It.

  • At bedtime, open the ragweed pollen relief inhalant jar and hold it near your nose. Take a few deep breaths through your nose, then leave the jar open on your nightstand while you sleep.
  • NOTE: As with all gelatin products, higher temperatures can cause this gel to liquefy. Simply stick the jar back in the fridge to make it solidified again.
