Welcome to April, when the nature hums back into life with tree blossoms, spring flowers, and the first bees taking to the air.
Take a deep breath and you take in the fragrance of fast approaching warmer days. You might also find yourself taking a giant sneeze, because along with those first wafts of springtime, we get those first wafts of pollen.
This is the time of year to ease pollen allergies by using local honey as a natural allergy treatment. When the honey has come from hives in the Glastonbury area, the bees will have visited precisely the plants that are making you sneeze! Introducing their honey into your diet gradually accustoms your body to those local pollens and reduces your sensitivity to them.
For pollen allergies, honey slowly increases your tolerance to the allergen. The trick is to make sure that it’s local and made as freshly as possible. Find it on your local farm stand. Here in Glastonbury we are blessed with some of Connecticut’s finest.
Seeking out local honey is an excellent homeopathic method for allergy-free springtime enjoyment.
