Be careful of honey products
vernajane posted:
Here is an experience that might be helpful to some. While on vacation in New Zealand I became intrigued with the local honey products, including shampoos and face creams. I used the lotion that night before going to bed and within minutes began to cough. It was very scary because my throat was starting to close up. I immediately washed off all of the lotion and the symptoms stopped. The only thing I could figure was that I was having an allergic reaction to the pollen in the honey. So, be cautious when using plant or pollen based products from a region other than the one you live in. Cheers...
