Herbal Honey is the sweetest homemade gift. Aside from a lovely treat, raw honey boasts a number of healthful virtues.
During the summer months, we grow the flowers and herbs that bees love. Our gardens keep them busy pollinating and tending to their hives. The resulting honey is paired with the herbs that the bees helped us to bloom, and we enjoy our Herbal Honey as a warming treat and winter remedy.
Raw honey is an emollient, meaning it has the wonderful quality of softening skin. It is considered a demulcent and is often used in natural cough syrups, because it forms a soothing film over places of irritation (such as in the case of sore throats or coughs) and reduces irritation. It aids in digestion to its very mild laxative qualities (1). It is a great natural sweetener, and it boosts our energy levels!
While honey on its own is beautifully potent, the infusion of medicinal herbs in honey offers a simple yet potent combination. It has a variety of uses and a long shelf life. This holiday season, we marry the wonderful flavours of organic herbs and spices with ethically-handled natural honey into a most delicious medicinal concoction!
Kolya’s Herbal Honey kit boasts the wellness properties of multiple organic herbs and natural flavourings. Each ingredient works individually and in tandem to boost the body’s natural immune response. Best of all, they are absolutely delicious and can be taken supplementally every day!
In each Herbal Honey kit, all the tedious work of measuring and weighing has been done for you. It’s easy to craft your very own homemade Herbal Honey, and you only have to do the fun part of putting everything together!
There are two flavours to choose from, both carefully formulated by our in-house herbal experts.
This blend includes organic cinnamon, fennel, astragalus, and more. The flavour is warm, spicy, invigorating, and boosts the body’s response to seasonal sniffles.
Reishi is an earthy mushroom lauded by herbalists for hundreds of years. It is highly beneficial to the body’s natural immune response, and has a unique umami taste that pairs wonderfully with chocolate!
No matter which flavour you choose, you’ll receive everything you need to craft your Herbal Honey from scratch! Kolya’s kit boasts full instructions, a fully reusable container, honey ethically sourced from Alberta beekeepers, organic raw botanicals from fair trade farms, and a vial of natural flavouring oil from Medicine Flower!
Medicine Flower natural flavouring oil is a highly potent edible oil that is usable in countless places around the home and kitchen. After making this kit, you will have plenty left over to use in other creations. Read more about our Medicine Flower oils!
Give your Herbal Honey away as a thoughtful gift, or keep in the home for you and your loved ones. It isn’t just medicinal: use in cooking, baking, as a salad dressing, or add to carbonated water for a sweet, natural cordial.
Kolya’s Herbal Honey kit is a tasty, multi-purpose winter remedy that pairs the goodness of whole foods with the wellness of nature’s medicinal herbs.
