What about honey as a natural hay fever remedy?


Shop Heather Dorset Honey 370g

There has been growing discussion about honey, especially local honey like our Heather Dorset Honey, in being an effective natural hay fever remedy.

The theory of honey being used as alternative to conventional hay fever treatments stems from a process called immunotherapy – which exposes an individual to a small amount of the substance to which they are allergic with the aim of building up resistance.

However, when it comes to honey being used as a treatment for hay fever there is unfortunately a lack of scientific evidence to confirm its effectiveness.

Still, it is proven to taste great! And our range of honey includes the popular Clear Dorset Honey from the south of England, and Wild Flower Honey with Honeycomb from the North East of England.
