Spring - Flowers, Sunshine & Allergies!
In a few days we Spring Forward and gain a welcome hour of daylight. Finally, we start saying goodbye to the grey and gloom of winter. Daffodils and crocus appear, the grass turns from brown to green and spirits lift. The Spring Solstice on March 20 heralds in the official start of the Spring Season and so too come the dreaded Allergies. Long-time sufferers stock up on tissues, anti-histamines and sneeze their way through the day. Everyone looks for natural remedies. One such solution is honey bee pollen.
Bee Pollen is the food of the young bee and made by honeybees. It is one of nature's nourishing superfoods and contains more amino acids than some animal proteins such as eggs or beef. Bee Pollen is often a recommended energy food by doctors and has many benefits, chief among them, its ability to treat allergies. Pollen reduces the presence of histamine, a major cause of allergy symptoms. We used this property to blend our own Spring Solace, a herbal blend with Honey bee pollen, Licorice, Peppermint, Hibiscus, Eucalyptus and Holy Basil. In addition to its health benefits, it tastes delicious. Make this a part of your daily regimen in fighting allergies.
All our Wellness Blends are carefully blended not only for their beneficial properties but also to impart flavor and taste. Our two other recommendations for a feel-good cup are:
Ginger Ease: Ginger root, Orange peel, Peppermint, Eucalyptus with the unmistakable taste of Ginger & Orange flavors.
Herb Revive: A naturally sweet blend of Apple, Verbena leaf, Lemongrass, Cranberry slices and Sweet Black Leaf.
These blends are naturally without caffeine and you can enjoy them hot or iced. Milk is not recommended for any herbal blends. Include these as part of your repertoire in feeling balanced and hydrated. Enjoy the Spring season without the Allergies!
