These Electuaries, or herbed honeys, are a delicious and easy way to get the all the benefits of herbs! They are packed with freshly cured and powdered herbs, mostly from our garden along with local, unpasteurized honey. Electuaries don't need to be strained but rather left to develop body and flavour the longer they sit and are used by the spoonful.
These organic herbs are not grown in my own garden, but such a tasty combo that I couldn't offer electuaries without this one! These herbs are amazing for calming the system while also invigorating it. Highly decongestant, antioxidant and wonderful for the digestive system. Best added to hot milk of your choice. I personally enjoy it mixed into hot cocoa or steamed milk. Yum.
