Also had very bad hay fever experience, worst I've known, but then I was working in an orchard. I took the nassle spray and it sorted it though.

Local honey only works if you are affected by flowers that bee's collect from. Grasses are pollinated by wind, not bee's, and I think most people are affected by grass pollen.

I tried actual bee pollen is NZ but made no difference, but I'm sure it's all very nutritious.
