2 reviews for Wild Thyme honey

  1. Thomas Baker

    I was looking for something to help me breath as my cough was getting me down. The gentleman pointed me in the direction of this honey and it has helped. I found it eased my cough after just two days, better than the cough mix I bought two weeks ago.

  2. Oliver Reynolds

    I was looking for a natural cough mixture and saw this one. I did some research and the ingredients were great for my chest. This is a lovely honey and has worked for me. My cough has gone and I can breath more easily.
