Just to let you all know that if you get hayfever try eating the local honey as it contain the pollen of the local plant and help to get your body immune to it. Smile

Things called honey cappings are better but you might have views on this as it is the sealingthat keeps the little bees in. I think it might be a food source for the little ones also.

I've tried this - but the closest local honey I could find still came from 12 miles away. Probably local enough I guess... can't say whether it worked or not though because I was also trying other herbal stuff.

It's either a result of growing older and perhaps growing out of the hayfever, or because of the herbal remedies I'm now using (luffa being the best so far) - but I don't suffer anywhere near as badly as I used to do when I was a teenager.

12 miles is fine WG...local just means your taking in the pollen in your area and therefore building your immune up against it...local can be anywhere up to 75 miles away aprox 100 miles at a push

hehe just wondering how far a bee travels.
I also works with shop bought honey but not as strongly cos you got the make sure the flowers are the same as your area.

Be capping was the best for me (i got a less of a reaction from flowers) and they came from spain (sorry for the air miles here) I have a friend near glouster (sp?) south Wales / midlands that run Tree harvest they have lots of products that they source for good homeopapic items.
I'll see if they can send me a price list the next time am visiting mummsy.

Local honey is the best home remedy to treat hay fever. Take one tablespoon of honey per day for at least one month and you will feel yourself free of this disease forever. Honey increases your immunity in the course of time to air borne irritants that surround you.

True hayfever is caused by grass pollen. Grasses are not pollinated by bees but by wind blown pollen so honey will not help.
