Honeycomb is an old Vermont remedy that, when chewed regularly during allergy season, completely alleviates allergies. Chew a piece of honeycomb as long as possible as though it were a piece of gum. Within 30 minutes of chewing honeycomb, symptoms like a stuffy nose and headache disappear. Start chewing honeycomb a week or two before allergy season starts and allergies won’t manifest. If this doesn’t work, try another famous Vermont remedy for allergies – apple cider vinegar.
