Electuaries & Infused Honey

Honey is a potent medicine in itself & helps to extract, preserve & sweeten any herbal formula. My honey products are made from Lake County, Illinois raw honey from Honey Works in Grayslake. Their honey is truly delicious & the quality is superb!

My electuaries consist of raw honey & powdered dried herbs. No heat, so no honey nutrients lost. Best taken by the spoonful or added to your favorite cup of tea. I like a ratio that keeps the electuary a bit more runny, although differences in thickness may occur. If separation occurs just give it a little stir & enjoy!

Herbal infused honeys do involve a bit of heat to extract the compounds of the herbs. I cook mine on low (below 120 degrees F) for at least 4 – 6 hours. Some of the honey constituents are lost with heat but it does an amazing job at extracting medicine from the plants. Plus it still taste divine! I sell my honey infusions individually & like to use them in syrups & elixirs.

Flourish Electuary

Flourish Electuary combines raw, golden honey with delightful, dried blossoms of Elderflowers, Calendula Flowers, Rose Petals & Chamomile Flowers. Sweet & floral the combination is delicious on it’s own or in a cup of tea. These herbs provide gentle nervine qualities, as well as anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, astringent & many more. The flowers provide a yummy dose of antioxidants & bioflavoniods. All of these herbs I love to munch on fresh from the garden; so why not combine them into a tasty year-round treat.

Elderberry Infused Honey

I had some leftover Elderberry infused Honey during the process of making my Elderberry syrup. So incredibly delicious!! I infuse my honey over 4-6 hours at a low temperature; no higher than 110 degrees F. I try to keep as much of the medicinal honey constituents while still being able to pull out the compounds in the Elderberries. Super sweet, berry flavored; great by the spoonful or smeared on your toast. Full of antioxidants, immune, anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular & gentle nervine qualities.

Ingredients: Local Honey & Dried Elderberries (Sambucus nigra)
