What's The Buzz About? The Oregon Honeycomb Mystery
February means Valentine's day and love is in the air. Here in Oregon we might get a rare snowstorm in February. Luckily most of the snow stays in the tops of the mountains so we can see it and visit if we want, but we don't have to clean up after it.
But not having a lot of snow means February is also the start of the pollen season. Oregon is known for being the pollen capital of the world and heaven help you if you have allergies.
The good news is that local honey as well as local bee pollen can actually help alleviate allergies for some people. Doctors liken it to taking an allergy shot. It has antioxidant properties and offers anti- inflammatory effects.
February is a great time to check with your doctor so that the minute local honey, bee pollen and royal jelly become available you can start using them if it's safe for you.
But if your area still has snow in February, light a lovely beeswax candle, make a cup of tea and cuddle up with your favorite cozy characters. Never fear, spring will be here soon.
What is your favorite tea and how do you sweeten it?
