What is Hay fever

Allergic symptoms caused by pollen of plants such as cedar and cypress.
Allergies are abnormal immune responses. The body recognizes things that are around us on a daily basis as foreign substances (allergens), and when it enters the body, the body releases a substance called histamine to fight against foreign substances (allergens). At that time, the immune system overreacts to histamine, which is a symptom.

Herbs do not have the side effects of "sleepiness" and "dry throat" like when using medicines for such symptoms, and they act mildly, so they can be taken by children and elderly people.
