Local Maine Honey
Why use local honey, you wonder? Shopping local has tremendous environmental benefits, no matter what you’re looking to buy. When it comes to honey, not only are you helping the planet (and community businesses), you’re helping yourself too. Local bees make local honey, which means the pollen they collect and bring back to the hive is all sourced from local plants. Since many seasonal allergies are caused by these same plants, eating honey that contains that pollen can possibly combat those allergies. While no formal studies have been conducted on the effects of local honey on allergies, the idea behind trace-exposure to allergens in order to desensitize patients to food allergies is one that’s gaining steam.
