"HAY FEVER SUFFERER'S....I can highly recommend taking one teaspoon of Backyard Honey to eliminate Spring pollen hay fever. Three years ago I started taking one teaspoon of this pure honey - from September 1st each year through to the end of the horrid hay fever season.  I have now ditched all antihistamine drugs : tablets, nasal sprays, and eye drops to a teaspoon of Backyard Honey.  It has been a game changer for me!

NOTE:  Crystallization is a natural process that can be reversed by placing pots of honey in a warm water bath less than 45 C.  Temperatures above 45C will diminish the natural health benefits of the honeys.
