Another passion of mine is HERBS! I am more interested in their healing and medicinal benefits than using them in cooking. That is what my hubby is good at. Whenever my kiddos are sick, I always use herbal remedies to help them feel better. And now instead of buying the natural cough syrup that contains mostly honey and some herbs, I can use my own! This is probably the easiest herbal infusion I have made. All you do is pick fresh organic herbs, wash them, heat up the honey, and add the herbs to the honey. No need to strain out the herbs, they will continue to infuse the syrup. The syrups will last up to 18 months
I made a Lemon Balm and Peppermint infusion. The Lemon Balm syrup is great for an upset stomach, colds, nausea, and a sore throat. The Peppermint syrup is good for allergies, anxiety, colds, congestion, coughs, headache, and nausea. They both taste great and I can use them in teas, cooking, or as an herbal remedy.
