Springtime is my favorite time of the year! I love the warmer weather, flowers blooming, bees buzzing, fresh cut grass, patio sitting and mead sipping. Spring does bring pollen and with pollen comes allergies. Living in the south, pollen takes over and turns everything a dusty yellow. This brings on sneezing, watery eyes, and a stuffy nose. Did you know taking a spoonful of local honey will help combat those allergies?
It takes approximately 1,200 honeybees their entire life to make one pound of honey! These worker bees work hard for their honey. Luckily, honeybees are hoarders and make more than they need. Beekeepers can harvest the excess honey and leave enough for the bees to enjoy all winter long. Honeybees have to tap 2 million flowers to produce just one pound of honey! Isn’t that crazy?! I find it so hard to wrap my mind around it! One bee only makes 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.
One spoonful of raw honey a day will help introduce your body to what’s blooming around you. By taking this daily you will start building your immune system to seasonal allergies. It is important to find raw and unfiltered honey. Don’t fret, every bottle of Blue Haven Bee Company Honey is 100% raw, unfiltered, straight from our bees!
I love to take my honey when I need a boost. I need a boost usually around 2:00 and I love that honey gives me energy without the crash. It’s also great a natural sweetener in your coffee, over oatmeal, toast, biscuits or to use a natural sweetener in your favorite recipes! I love making salad dressing with my honey. Honey adds a rich flavor that you can’t get with traditional sweeteners!
So grab a bottle or two of our Wildflower Honey and start taking it! You will see a difference in how you feel this spring! Don’t forget to add on a handy honey pump for daily dispensing! Discover nature’s nectar with Blue Haven Bee Company Raw and Unfiltered honey!
