As reported in the press this week* the hay fever season is starting earlier and lasting longer. As a result of climate change hay fever sufferers are now facing longer periods of runny noses and itchy eyes.

The rise in global temperatures has led plants to release pollen earlier in the year meaning that the season for hay fever now runs from early March to October. This is mainly due to longer fertile periods for grass and trees, the main source if irritation.

It is estimated that a quarter of the UK population will suffer from hay fever at some point. Unfortunately there is no cure, but the Olbas range of natural remedies can help. More often associated with making us feel better in the depths of winter, herbal remedy Olbas can also offer relief from the congestion caused by pollen allergies.

Olbas is made with a combination of essential pure plant oils including Eucalyptus, Mint, Wintergreen and Cajuput, that can help relieve the bunged-up symptoms of hay fever.

Put a few drops of Olbas Oil onto a tissue and inhale gently to find immediate relief. If your work colleagues are frustrated by your constant sniffing, ensure you have the Olbas Inhaler on hand to clear a stuffy nose or if your children are suffering use the gentle yet effective Olbas Oil for Children.

These Olbas products are available from pharmacies, chemists and supermarkets nationwide. Prices start from £2.25.
