In brief: Allergy shots

If by "best" you mean "cure" then allergy immunotherapy, either injections or possibly sublingual drops, are the answer. Medications, avoidance, and saline rinses only relieve symptoms.
Immunotherapy changes the course of the disease; for many providing a cure, for some dramatic improvement. Immunotherapy is disease-altering. Everything else is stopgap.

In brief: Many treatments

You could treat with antihistamines or prescription nasal sprays.
..However, the "best remedy" is allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots), because allergy shots can cure the disease completely.
