Are your allergies kicking in? Mine sure are, and as much work as we have outdoors in the vegetable and herb gardens it’s not, as Martha would say, “a good thing.” My friend and Cincinnati Magazine Marketing Director, Chris Ohmer, said it best. “I’m living from tissue to tissue.” Well, I’ve got a natural home remedy that might help Chris and others who are affected by seasonal allergies. I can tell you this: my “potion” sure helps me get through these pollen laden spring days.
Easy and effective honey cider allergy drink
First thing to know. Never give honey to children under the age of 1 year. And if you’re going to make this drink, make it with raw local organic honey and organic raw apple cider vinegar. The reason? For the local honey, bees collect pollen from your area and this helps builds up in your system. If all goes right, you could become immune to the pollen in your area. As far as the organic apple cider vinegar goes, it’s not refined and distilled and it is thought to block histamine reactions. It also contains healthy enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Plus it can help lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, as well.
For every cup of warm or chilled water, stir in:
1 generous tablespoon each local raw honey and organic apple cider vinegar.
Add a squeeze of lemon for extra vitamin C if you want. Drink a couple times a day, or more if you’re outdoors a lot.
