(Ad - Gifted) A little help from HayMax in hay fever season!

For one in five of us the arrival of spring means hay fever and means a few months of endless sneezing and itchy eyes. Ugh! I suffered with hay fever mildly until we moved house last summer. Now we live in a pretty rural area surrounded by fields and last year I suffered and the kids started with it too. There's currently no cure for hay fever but most people are able to relieve symptoms with treatment at least to a certain extent.

I have tried various things to easy mine and my familes symptoms but what I had never tried before was HayMax!

HayMax is a natural, organic allergen barrier balm that is applied to the rim of the nostrils and it can also be applied to the bones of the eyes. It is made from a blend of beeswax and seed oils with added essential oils or aloe vera leaf juice.

It works by trapping pollen before it gets in the body. Each of us can tolerate a certain amount of pollen grains in our body without a reaction but when this amount is exceeded an allergic reaction occurs resulting in common hay fever symptoms.

HayMax is so easy to use. Wipe a small amount on your finger (or cotton swab) and rub around the rim of each nostril and/or the bones of the eyes (not too close or in the eyes). Apply first thing in the morning, keep a pot with you and re-apply whenever needed throughout the day.

There are five varieties of HayMax allergen barrier balm: Pure, Aloe Vera, Lavender, Frankincense and Kids. Each variety works in exactly the same way but smells differently.

HayMax Kids has launched a new, improved formula for the 2020 hay fever season. This organic allergen barrier balm for young hay fever sufferers is still as effective as before at blocking pollen but now has the potential to last even longer  making it even more economical and environmentally friendly as there is less wastage.

HayMax Kids is a proven organic, drug free allergen barrier balm suitable for children aged three and above. Made from beeswax and sunflower oil, there are no added nasties just natural Soil Association certified organic cruelty free ingredients!

The other varieties of HayMax are also natural, organic and drug free so it’s suitable for everyone including pregnant and breastfeeding women to use!

We have been using it for a few days and I have noticed a difference. I am still sneezing but not as much as I was before. Becky has tried it too after a couple of sneezing fits one day and she said she has noticed a difference. I am still yet to convince Ellie to give it a try but at the moment her hayfever isn't bad at all.

The pots of Haymax retail at £6.99 and are available from Holland & Barrett, Ocado, Booths, selected Morrisons and Boots, independent chemists, pharmacists and health stores, online and direct from the HayMax website.

I was sent the pots of HayMax in exchange for this blog post.


  1. I used to love this stuff - I spread it around my nose and also my eyes when I was really suffering and it definitely helped. The scented versions sound great.

  2. My hay-fever recently has been so bad. g I have never heard of this sounds a good variety too X

  3. I suffer with hay-fever every summer. Haymax sounds great, I will need to try it.
