When ever you find yourself in a new environment, either on the road or as the seasons change, it can be a recipe for allergy disaster! New flora and fauna or meeting new animals can have you itching and scratching and sneezing everywhere and that's no way to spend a vacation.

Instead of spending a fortune on over-the-counter drugs, you can find natural remedies in your own kitchen or in a hotel restaurant. For relief, try peppermint tea, whose essential oil acts as a decongestant. Adding a spoonful of honey to a glass of tea or warm water will soothe a sore throat and help to settle coughing. Parsley, often overlooked as a throw-away garnish, is a natural antihistamine and contains wonderful anti-inflammatory agents, which can reduce swelling in your nasal passage and throat. Juicing the herb or steeping it in hot water are preferred ways of consumption.
