Lavender and Hibiscus Infused Honey

The honey is fresh, naturally and safely derived, and organic. The jars it is stored in are sterile and food grade. They infusion has very powerful properties which make it an herbal remedy, and it tastes great. Use it to sweeten teas and other drinks. Take it by itself. Add it to the hair and skin to help it grow longer and clear it of debris to help with acne and other dermal afflictions. Use it to cook.

When tasting this honey, you will find a very sharp and vibrant taste, from the Hibiscus flowers, followed by a long lasting floral taste from the lavender flowers. It is great for teas, especially jasmine and other floral teas. It also pairs will with oolong teas.

Benefits of Lavender:
Lavender has many ways of benefiting mental and physical health. Some of the most important health benefits of lavender include its ability to relieve stress, improve mood, promote restful sleep, reduce inflammation, lower skin irritation, prevent infections, eliminate dandruff, and soothe stomach bloating. It is an extremely powerful stress reliever. The antioxidant components of lavender can impact the endocrine system of the body to lower the levels of stress hormones in the body. It also has a very noticeable impact on the nervous system, which is why it helps you sleep.
Lavender also prevents hair loss, regenerates dead hair follicles, and promotes new growth of thick, healthy hair. It can be used to the skin from dryness, sunburn, and after an injury.

Benefits of Hibiscus:
Hibiscus is high in vitamin C. It helps lower high blood pressure and cholesterol. It benefits the immune system and digestive tract. It shortens the life of colds, flu, and viruses. It speeds up the metabolism to aid in healthy, safe weight loss. It also lowers inflammation!

Benefits of Honey:
Honey contains flavonoids, antioxidants which help reduce the risk of cancers and heart disease. Research shows that because of its powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, having a few teaspoons of honey daily as treatment may help disorders such as ulcers and bacterial gastroenteritis. (Honey becomes anti-bacterial and anti-fungal because the bees add an enzyme that makes hydrogen peroxide.) But - it only gets rid of harmful and unhealthy bacteria. It does possess large amounts of friendly bacteria!

Honey also helps maintain glycogen levels which helps in physical performance. When warmed, it is used often to treat sore throats and also encourages natural sleep and speeds up healing during sleep. It is also said to be useful in improving eyesight, weight loss, curing impotence and premature ejaculation, urinary tract disorders, bronchial asthma, diarrhea, and nausea.

When applied to the skin and when taken internally, it is moisturizing and nourishing to the skin, helping it heal, encouraging new cell growth and making sure those cells are very healthy, and cleaning the area of wounds.

Honey is referred as “Yogavahi” since it has a quality of penetrating the deepest tissues of the body. When honey is used with other herbal preparations, it enhances the medicinal qualities of those preparations and also helps them to reach the deeper tissues. This is why a honey infusion is so successful as a natural medicine.
