An herbal honey is one of the tastiest herbal preparations one can make. They require little time to create, and they can be used in many different ways. Plus, they’re full of healthy benefits!
An herbal honey can be made using fresh or dried herbs, but keep in mind that if you use fresh herbs, you’ll be introducing water into your honey so you’ll want to refrigerate it to extend its shelf-life. An herbal honey made using dried herbs can be left unrefrigerated for 3-6 months.
Endless combinations of herbs can be used to make an herbal honey. You can infuse one herb or a blend of herbs into your honey. Herbal honey can be enjoyed as food or to support the body during acute illness. They can be very beneficial for coughs and sore throats as well as supportive to the body when respiratory infections are present. They can also be used to sweeten herbal teas or used as the honey portion when making rolled herb pills.
