home remedies for sneezing

Fennel Tea

Fennel has natural antibiotic and anti-viral properties that can fight off any upper respiratory infection, including sneezing.

Boil a cup of water, add two teaspoons of crushed fennel seeds and cover the pot. Soak the seeds for 10 to 15 minutes and then strain the liquid.
Drink two cups of this tea daily to reduce the frequency of sneezing.
When preparing fennel tea, never boil the water after adding the seeds to it. This will destroy the natural oils in the fennel.

Black Pepper

Something as simple as pepper can be the solution to sneezing and a runny nose.

Mix one-half tablespoon of pepper powder with lukewarm water. Drink it two to three times a day.
Gargling with warm water mixed with pepper also helps get rid of cold viruses and germs.
You can also eat soups and salads mixed with black pepper.


Ginger is one of the oldest and effective home remedies for the treatment of different viral and nasal problems including sneezing.

Consume 1 to 2 teaspoons of ginger extract twice a day until the sneezing stops.
Another option is to cut a small piece of ginger root into thin slices, put them in a cup of water and boil it for some time. Add a little honey for taste and drink the tea before going to bed. This will prevent sneezing at night.

Chamomile Tea

A hot cup of chamomile tea is considered as one of the best home remedies for sneezing caused by allergies. It has excellent antihistamine properties that can provide instant relief.

Add one teaspoon of dried chamomile flowers to one cup of boiling water, continue boiling the tea for a few minutes. Add some honey to improve the flavor.
Drink the tea two times each day to stop your sneezing.
You can also use Echinacea and nettle tea and drink it two times daily.
