Pollen season? Can Shea butter help?


Is that allergies or Rona?






While reading the internet I came across something that was very interesting to me. It turns out that there is some kind of correlation with shea butter and people who suffer from pollen allergies. According to mnn, a website that is known for their news on natural ingredients such as shea butter for natural soaps, stated an astonishing remark:

"study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found that shea butter was potentially more efficacious in treating nasal congestion than nasal drops. Subjects with congestion (mostly associated with seasonal allergy) were given 2-4 grams of shea butter applied to the interior of the nostril “by means of the subject’s right index finger.” (Which is to say, you can try this at home!) The airways of those using the shea butter (opposed to those using nasal drops or petroleum jelly) became clear within 30 to 90 seconds of application, and remained so for 5 to 8 hours, besting the other treatment methods. (On a similar note, use shea butter instead of petroleum jelly to fight pollen, see: How to survive pollen season (without locking yourself inside the house.)"

We have still yet to confirm this study, but we will be on top of it. Though we must say it is something that you can try to help alleviate some of the stress caused by allergies due to pollen and totally enjoy spring even though this horrid Covid-19 pandemic.
