The pollen-count is out of control this spring. I don't usually suffer from allergies, but this year even I am getting sniffly. I seriously dislike being congested, and watering eyes aren't fun either, but I read on a friend's blog [Sparkles of Life] that consuming local honey can bring relief. It makes sense: bees, flowers, pollen honey - they're all related. I decided to give this method a try (and help support local farmers) by purchasing Golden Meadow Raw Wildflower Honey, which is from Holliston, MA. I plan on adding it to my tea for the next few days and see if my allergy symtoms can be mitigated without pills. Certainly worth a try!
