Enjoying the outdoors can be difficult for those who suffer from seasonal allergies. Symptoms include sneezing, watery and itchy eyes, runny nose, sore throat, and more. Symptoms usually begin in early spring and can last until late fall. These allergies are caused by the body treating pollen as a foreign invader and the symptoms are your body's response to fight it. 

Exposing your body to local pollen in small doses can help your immune system become accustomed to it before it is exposed to large doses of pollen in the environment. 

Raw unpasteurized honey is not filtered or heated, meaning it still includes bee pollen, bee propolis, and antioxidants. 

All of our honey here at Ontario Honey Creations is always raw and unpasteurized. Specializing in terroir honey, we label each jar with the region from which it was produced. This allows you to get the most local honey available. 

Begin introducing local honey into your diet today as a natural way to lessen seasonal allergy symptoms.
