Hay Max - The Sneezing Cure

Hay Max

When it comes to hayfever cures there is not much I won't try apart from the honey cure as I really can't stomach honey, along with baked beans they are the two tastes that repulse me.
Repulsion's aside if you struggle with hayfever I have a nifty little ointment you need to pick up asap particularly if you are blighted by a sneezing fit or two!

Hay Max

Basically Hay Max is a solid oil based ointment that comes presented in a little tub (not much bigger than the likes of a Carmex lip balm) which is initially solid at room temperature but softens to a balm like consistency at body heat. With that in mind you do want to keep this product out of direct sunlight and/or heat to prevent it turning into a pool of liquid.

Hay Max

Hay Max is a completely organic based product that only contains two components Sunflower Oil and Beeswax - in my opinion the less ingredients the better. To use you simply apply the tiniest amount to each nostril and gently massage in - yes it can be misinterpreted as picking your nose but trust me it is worth the funny looks to quell a sneezing fit! All this natural and organic treatment essentially does is acts as a barrier against pollen to stop it entering your nasal passage and irritating your senses and despite being so close to your nose I would deem it to be almost scent free. Truthfully I don't find it helps at all when it comes to the itchy and watering eyes but there is no product out there that I have found that quite aids an irritated nose like it. Yes you do have to reply fairly often but in my case it is so very worth it and one dinky little tub will last you all summer long!

  1. definitely gonna give this a go my hayfever has been unbearable recently! x

  2. I saw this the other day, but wasn't sure if it would work!
    I have Beconase nasal spray and Haytek tablets.. I'd recommend both... my hayfever is so much better now I've been using them!

  3. Oh wow, that sounds amazing! I'll definitely have to have a look at it, my hayfever is driving me crazy this year :(


  4. I picked this up the other day in Tesco as they were out of the only steroid free nasal spray and I'd recently become too sensitive to take hayfever tablets (disagreed with me so much I was sent home from work..) and it's AMAZING. Bought some standard eye drops (not the fancy ones for hayfever as I wear contacts) and the combo basically sorted me out completely, actually find since not taking tablets my hayfever seems less severe (bizarre) and have good days & bad days where as before they were all bad. Would recommend this to anyone suffering (and have been) especially anyone with very sensitive noses that get sore as well as for sneezing. So glad someone is promoting it, it truly is the best thing I've found this summer!

  5. This is exactly what I need, my hayfever's been unbearable lately.

    Maxine, xx

  6. Ooh might give this one a go! I am suffering big time this summer. Hayfever is the worst!
