Allergy season is definitely upon us…

I am lucky.  I don’t suffer from hayfever.  But this last couple of weeks, the pollen from the plants have even got up my nose.  I have been sneezing and rubbing strangely itchy eyes.  I understand these are some common symptoms of the dreaded hayfever, along with sore throats and dry coughs.


I wondered if there was anything I could find online to help.  Unfortunately I do not have a magic wand to cure hayfever.  I wish I did.  I know it makes people miserable, and uncomfortable, and I wish I could help you all.  Plus… let’s face it, if I could cure it, I would make millions!


However, I did find an allergy relief syrup which might help.  All the ingredients of this recipe need to be organic, and it should really help with the sore throats and the dry coughs.

honey and lemon

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of grated ginger

1 tablespoon of raw honey (either local to your area, or manuka)

1/2 teaspoon of bee pollen

1 tsp lemon juice


Combine all of the ingredients and warm slightly so the honey is runny.  Once it is all combined, put it in a clean glass jar and take a teaspoon of this twice daily.  The honey will coat the throat and will help to ease the soreness and dry cough, and the ginger and cinnamon will clear the nose and shake up and congestion.  The bee pollen may actually help you to become less sensitive to the pollen particles in your local area.



I hope it works for those of you who suffer.
