    I took the linden honey on the recommendation for my cough and I have found it really works well.

  2. Sarah Smith

    I wanted a ‘different’ type of honey and the lady at the market told me of her favourite – this one, the Linden honey. Really tasty and I tried it for sleep as she said it helps with insomnia. It does. I was thinking of buying the Lavender honey but I’m glad I got this one. Thank you.
