I have added honey infusions to my immune-enhancing regimen during my recovery from Lyme disease. I'm using honey to elevate my daily teas, upgrade my smoothies and raw desserts, and mix with some extra vitamin C for a power shot if any cold or flu decides to visit. Combining honey with immune-boosters gives these nourishing remedies an added punch.
In the first infusion, I’ve combined honey with turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties and ginger, which aids in digestion. In the second, I’ve included antioxidant-rich raw garlic, which is one of nature’s most effective antibiotics. And for the third infusion, I’ve used Gynostemma tea, which is an adaptogen that provides the body with both uplifting and calming benefits as needed. The rose petals help alleviate depression and fatigue.
These are three of my favorite infused honey recipes, but the possibilities really are endless. Feel free to play around with the ingredients and measurements to create your own heavy-duty honey arsenal.
