Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) is commonly used for easing Colic, gastrointestinal spasms, allergic rhinitis, dyspepsia, diarrhea, and even anxiety. Quercetin and apigenin, active constituents found in chamomile can inhibit histamine release from mast cells, which in turn can ease symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Nettle (Urtica dioica) is a perfect pairing in these balls due to also having a high quercetin content.
I make these allergy-kickers with macadamia nut because macadamias are generally well tolerated and rarely cause an allergic reaction; a plus is that they are delicious with chamomile and vanilla! I add bee pollen for the extra anti-allergy benefits, although use with caution, I buy my bee pollen locally and receive it from a reputable source. If used properly, bee pollen can have many health benefits, research suggests that it may have anti-fungal and anti-proliferative properties. Bee pollen also has a high nutrition profile including having more amino acids and vitamins compared to other animal protein products. I usually give my son one of these a day, when he is showing symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
