  1. Hmmmm.... I love the scent of cloves. If they have antihistamine properties and are anti-inflammatories, I wonder if they would be effective for hay-fever.

  2. Actually, clove oil can help to reduce allergy symptoms. Maybe it could help if you try to inhale essential oil. Put few drops of clove essential oil into hot (boiled) water, and inhale for 5-10 minutes. Hope it helps! :)
