Allergies are rampant this year.
Many holistic practitioners recommend local honey to help combat those symptoms. Sort of nature’s “allergy shot” but instead of an injection, you just do a tablespoon or more of honey a day and allow the sweet nectar made from your local plants to do the job. There are MANY healthy benefits of Local honey, here is where you can get some.
Today, I just wanted to provide some options for LOCAL honey in my area.
