For years I have been taking local honey everyday to help my asthma and hay fever in the summer season. It really works! Always use a wooden implement with honey and never boil it.For thousands of years honey has been used for medicinal purposes. It is used internally to soothe coughs, colds and stomach pain, and externally on wounds. Manuka honey is even effective against MRSA!
If you are taking it for hay fever, be sure to source it locally. The bees feed on the plants that trigger your allergies. And you are giving valuable support to your local bee-keeper.
