Hay Fever, also known as seasonal allergies, is an extremely common and disruptive condition that affects a whopping 1 in every 5 people.
If you’re one of those people who has to deal with them year after year, shutting the windows and missing days at work when you should be out enjoying the sun, I want you to know that it doesn’t have to be this way!
Allergies are not a sign that you’re just unlucky. Rather, they’re a sign that your body is prone to imbalance as the seasons change, with a heightened immune and allergic response that can be calmed and reduced with herbal medicine. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), part of this imbalance is rooted in “liver deficiency,” meaning the liver is overburdened and needs help detoxifying and excreting the sudden buildup of histamine.
Why? Because when allergens (such as pollen) come into contact with the body’s mast cells, these mast cells ‘degranulate’ or burst open, releasing a slew of itch-inducing histamine. The body is supposed to break down and detoxify histamines through your liver detox pathways. However, many other compounds use the same exact route to exit the body (for example medications, pesticides, hormones, heavy metals, etc!)
While OTC allergy drugs can temporarily suppress symptoms, plant medicine goes a step further to address the root cause. This preventative formula strengthens your resistance to pollens before the season even begins, and includes anti-histamine, decongestant, and liver-supporting herbs.
Allergy Defense Tonic works from the inside out to strengthen the defenses of those who have become depleted and deficient throughout the winter. It actively prevents and prepares your body for allergy season with the use of powerful tonic herbs that mediate inflammation and improve the allergic response. ADT supports liver detox and decreases the hypersensitive response of mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, throat and ears. Results can vary from a decrease in reactivity to complete relief.
HOW TO USE (PREVENTATIVE): Begin use 2-4 weeks before allergy season by taking 1 full squeeze of the dropper bulb (approx. 30 drops) 2-3 times per day. Continue throughout allergy season.
HOW TO USE (ACUTE SYMPTOMS): Take 2 full squeezes of the dropper (approx. 60 drops) 3-4 times per day.
HOW TO USE (KIDS): Begin use 2-4 weeks before allergy season by taking the weight-appropriate dose 2-3 times per day. For kids 10-30 lbs, one dose equals 5-10 drops. For kids 31-60 lbs, one dose equals 10-20 drops. For kids 61-100 lbs, one dose equals 20-30 drops. For kids 100 lbs and over, use adult dose of 30 drops.
FOR BEST RESULTS: Can be combined with Liver Juice and Adrenal Recovery Formula to address underlying liver deficiency and stress-induced histamine release. It is also recommended to consume small amounts of bee pollen (local to your area) and avoid dairy.
Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Safe for children; use weight guidelines for dosage.
The super herbs in our blend:
- Nettle Leaf – nettles are one of the most nourishing plants we have available to us, used traditionally as a spring tonic for those who have become depleted and deficient through the harsh winter. Nettle strengthens and supports the entire body with its ability to mediate inflammation and the allergic (histamine) response. The leaves specifically help to stabilize the mast cells that line the mucous membranes.
- Eyebright – the aerial parts of this tiny plant are considered both astringent and anti-inflammatory, as they decrease the hypersensitive response of the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, throat, and ears.
- Ambrosia – Michael Moore writes in his book Medicinal Plants of the Pacific West that a standard infusion of ambrosia is helpful for head colds, allergies, and moderate histamine reactions.
- Yerba Santa Leaf – as the primary decongestant in this formula, the leaves of this herb help to liquify mucous in the lungs and facilitate expectoration. Yerba Santa also aids in upper respiratory tissue repair and slows down the production of excess mucus.
- Turmeric Root – according to TCM, allergies are a sign from the body that the liver is imbalanced, also known as “liver deficiency.” As the liver governs the eyes (and the season of Spring!), itchy red eyes that show up every Spring are a clear sign that the liver needs support. Strengthening the liver and supporting detoxification pathways is an important part of any holistic allergy protocol, which is where turmeric (a phase I & II liver detox supporter) shines.
- Lobelia – Lobelia is traditionally used to support healthy lung function and clear, easy breathing. Supportive for asthma (which is a form of an allergy, too!)
I am so grateful for allergy defense! My 5 year old son suffers from pretty bad seasonal allergies and until now we always had to give him over the counter allergy meds to help. He usually has the worst itchy swollen eyes and sneezing fits but with one dose most days he has had no trouble like he usually does. Allergy defense is hands down the best!
Per Olivia’s recommendation, I started taking this just before allergy season and it has made SUCH A difference! I’m thrilled! I’m the only one in my house not sneezing and rubbing their eyes like crazy. I can tell it’s helped me in a major way and I’m so grateful! Will definitely order again.
This works SO WELL. Olivia recommends taking it a few weeks before allergy season, but I even start taking it as soon as I feel allergies beginning and it works. It’s one of the only medicines that actually gives me relief. I had a lot of sinus infection issues this past fall, and this really helped me during the infections. I believe it also helped kick the infection out when antibiotics was not enough (combined with sinus rinses as well). I will continue to order this product as it truly works for me!!
This is the only allergy relief product that actually gives me allergy relief! 100x better than any prescription medication or other brands. SO GOOD. and i feel relief SO FAST.
This product is a game changer! I ordered it for my husband who suffers from seasonal allergies, and works outside. By this time of year he is usually miserable. He has been taking Allergy Defense for the last 4 weeks. He hasn’t had to take a single allergy pill! He feels great! 0% irritation in his eyes or throat! I am so impressed I ordered two more bottles for myself and daughter to use when we have heavy pollen counts. We will be life long customers! Amazing company and amazing products!
This is the most incredible product I could have purchased! My 7 year old son suffers terribly from seasonal allergies. Once pollen season is upon us, he is a mess for a few months. Most days he would be in the nurse’s office in school with little to no relief. His eyes would swell up shut, sneezing, coughing, sometimes asthmatic symptoms, and the only relief was Benadryl. And even then it only helped a little. This stuff is a Godsend!! His eyes have not swelled up once since taking it! He never sneezes, coughs, nothing!! It’s like his allergies are completely gone! I’m truly amazed!! Thank you Organic Olivia for giving me my sons life back!!!! I cannot thank you enough!
I purchased this formula for my dad about a month or so ago. He suffers from allergies, asthma, sneezing and just overall severe allergy symptoms-especially this time of year. He started taking this formula and I haven’t heard him sneeze ONCE, his asthma symptoms have decreased and he’s also been around dogs more often (which he’s allergic to) and hasn’t had ANY REACTIONS! I mentioned all of this it to him the other day and he said “yeah you’re right- must be the herbs you have me taking!” This has never happened to him during my 30 years of being around him! It has truly changed his life when it comes to allergies & asthma. Luckily I have another bottle ready for when he runs out of this one 🙂 thanks Olivia, you’re truly making a difference in the world and I’m so happy I found something that brings ease and healing into my dad’s life!
I am pretty sure we will not be able to live without the allergy defense. My teenage daughter and I started taking it before allergy season. Usually this time of year my daughters eyes have been swollen shut a few times but not this year. We have only had slight symptoms like itchy eyes one day and slight dripping nose but nothing that lasted or kept us down. Thank you Olivia!! This product is awesome.
I have very acute/perennial environmental allergies and am sneezing and sniffling EVERYDAY ALL YEAR LONG. I’m tired of pharmaceuticals so I gave this a try and because of my symptoms, I was taking 2 squeezes 3 times per day. I noticed a very gradual but definite improvement in my symptoms but I sadly ran out just 2 weeks later. I am definitely repurchasing when I can afford with 2 day shipping but please Olivia, PLEASE make this available in a larger size! <3 <3 <3
I have only been on it for a month, but have noticed that the allergies have minimized although it seems that my body personally needs some hardcore reconstruction when it comes to allergies. Will continue and hope to see more lasting changes.
I purchased this for my 2yr old daughter and I to combat our severe allergy symptoms and I began to feel a change within 2 days of taking it. My daughter has an adversion to taking most medicines, but she’s absolutely in love with this tonic now. I’m thankful it’s able to be taken through out the day. She always wants more and to give me my dose. I’m so happy she loves this clean herbal tonic and I think intuitively she knows it’s good ingredients and good for her! Thank you Olivia for your passion and knowledge toward holistic healing! You’ve got a client for life!
LIFESAVER! My wife has asthma and with this nasty virus going around, she caught it and was just about dying using her nebulizer and pump EVERYDAY ALL DAY! That’s not normal for her AT ALL! She controls her asthma VERY well and rarely has flare-ups. She was itchy from all the pollen and bam! GONE! Thank you, Olivia and your wonderful team! She takes 2 doses before she leaves for work in the am, she works outside and constantly in/out of other people home doing cable so imagine going into attics and on the pole line and digging in the dirt! This saves her every time! She’s also allergic to cinnamon, we tried these paleo pancake mix and are thinking the ”Spice” ingredient could contain cinnamon because she started to get an itchy throat one night after eating them and then felt tightness and went for nebulizer, we forgot about ADT that night and went for the Benadryl in a panic. It happened again just last night 3/16/19, after eating those pancakes she started to feel weird and we remembered ADT and she was FINE!!! 😁😁❤️✨✨✨ ps: she won’t be eating that pancake mix anymore lol
Totally impressed, y’all. Let me start out by telling you I live in the Lowcountry. Y’all, we had a sheet of pollen on our cars and porches already. We not only have pounds of pollen with each sunny day, but we have Spanish moss everywhere. Do y’all know what’s in that stuff? Only the good Lord above does, but don’t touch it, okay? I started taking Olivia’s Allergy Defense Tonic about one week prior to the outpouring of love and affection from our friends, the flowers. Normally, I would have been blessed by this pollen by receiving itchy, watery, red eyes, itchy red nose, sneezy, snot, and an asinine amount of sinus pressure and headaches. Not this time. My husband was totally miserable and laughed and laughed when I got my tonic and started taking it immediately. So listen y’all, I feel amazing. Now take this tonic. Every day. Just do it. I have no sinus pressure, no headaches, nothing. I am in awe of this amazing tonic. Olivia, you have truly converted our whole neighborhood and extended family into believers of herbal remedies, because trust me, they heard about it. Hallelujah praise the Lord. Bless y’all. Thank you.
I don’t know where to begin. Olivia’s Allergy Defense Tonic has been life-changing to say the least. Last year, I had a series of health issues. It was one thing after another, the last of which was a very bad case of bronchitis I got from the school I work at. I had a relapse of asthma caused by the bronchitis. Up until that point, I had been asthma-free for about 5 years. Needless to say, I felt overwhelmed and defeated that it came back. I became reliant on an inhaler again for the first time in forever. I desperately tried supplements, home remedies, and various herbs to try and get rid of the asthma, to no avail. Last month I read about the Allergy Tonic and figured it couldn’t hurt anything so I purchased and gave it a try. I have had incredible results. My asthma is much less severe, I have used my inhaler once in the past month where I was using it multiple times a day before. This stuff is amazing. I have even used it for acute shortness of breath with results in about 5 minutes. I can’t believe it but it certainly is true! This morning I woke up with allergies (pollen count in GA is high right now) and I am feeling so much better by the evening. For anyone with allergies or asthma, I can’t recommend this product any more highly. At the very least add it to your regimen, it’s certainly not going to hurt anything. If you’re like me, you’ll be amazed and have to stock up on Allergy Defense, I am almost through my first bottle and have bought two more for fear that it might go out of stock. Thank you Olivia, for being passionate about helping others and giving me a solution that aligns with my personal beliefs.
So my sister told me about Olivia and her products and I said this sounds too good to be true! I have really bad allergies and allergic asthma and had tried every over the counter option there is. I was prescribed Montelukast which helped a little but triggered my depression so I finally said I’m going the organic way! I started using this and I’m never looking back! It helps my symptoms more than any over the counter drugs I’ve ever tried and no bad side effects! To all the non believers(like i was), yes there is healthier ways to go that actually work! I cant wait to try all of her other products. Olivia you are amazing!!

If you have allergies or asthma YOU NEED THIS. I have struggled with asthma all my life and I purchased this when it came out hoping and praying (deep down knowing) it would help. A week into using this I feel amazing and my lungs are thanking me. I used my inhaler every single day and some days I’d search to find it because I needed it desperately. Since using this tonic I can tell you I don’t even know where my inhaler is…I literally do not need it anymore. I feel so free and amazing. I’m actually looking forward to spring knowing that I have this in my aresnal. I cannot tell you enough how much you need this! Thank you, Olivia!
