Peppermint and fennel are such classic digestive herbs. These are so good for us and just so yummy! If ya love peppermint tea, try this combo with an extra kick. This is delicious and also so effective after a meal, for the whole fam. If you have ongoing digestive complains, look into our Digestive Bitters, Liver Tonic or Golden Electuary as they all help in different ways. This particular blend of peppermint and fennel is also a lovely one for nursing mothers and anyone experiencing cold or flu.
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 my 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.
Peppermint is soothing on the nervous system and especially on the digestive system by easing gas, indigestion and nausea. Peppermint can also be very helpful for migraine headaches associated with digestion, anxiety, tension and flu.
Fennel is an excellent stomach and intestinal herb, stimulating digestion and appetite. It's calming for muscle spasms of the digestive system and for coughs. It can also increase the flow of milk in nursing mothers!
Raw Honey is high in anti-oxidants, anti-bacterial and anti fungal, soothes sore throats and is loaded with phytonutrients.
