These Electuaries, or herbed honeys, are a delicious and easy way to get the all the benefits of herbs! 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. This particular blend of peppermint and fennel is also a lovely one for nursing mothers and anyone experiencing cold or flu.
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.
USAGE: Add a tsp to a cup of hot water, tea, milk or milk alternative. Alternatively, take it straight or on a piece of bread :)
