Itchy-Throated Pollen Panic

During springtime, do you find your throat afire with itchiness, where the back of your tongue tries to tear your uvula free of its moorings? I get this at night, when new flowers release their microparatroopers.

Here's the fix: Buy some propolis spray (best from a local aviary, but easily found online). Do one single squirt, straight back. That's all.

I wrote about propolis before. It's a legit miracle cure, though it can never be proven to be so, since, inherently, no two samples of propylis are the same (it's made ad hoc from local resins and such by bees to serve as an antibiotic/antiviral/antifungal/antiseptic for the hive).

Useful though it is, be aware that it's strong, powerful stuff to be used with care and respect. Don't take it unless you need it, and use as little as you can get away with. Not because it's dangerous (I don't know anyone who'd describe it that way, though eating a lot can mildly and temporarily upset your stomach, and, also, while bees are finicky, they're unable to detect and avoid heavy metals), but because its potency is not something to toy with. I wouldn't do the above trick more than once or twice/night, and only during bad nights. But it likely won't require more than that.
