February is that time of when the new year has settled in, children are heading back to schools and parents and professionals are back in the thick of things. Time to blend up some immune boosting, energy generating, tummy soothing and generally all around delicious syrups which can be used medicinally or in smoothies, on homemade pancakes, ice cream or porridge!
1 hour 5 mins
- ⅔ cup of O|M herbal tea (suggestions below)
- 3½ cups of filtered water
- 1 cup raw organic honey
These are the syrups my little family love, but most the teas will make amazing srups
- Ruby Rose & Elderberry– makes a wonder immune boosting syrup, with anti microbial, anti bacterial and anti viral properties
- Energy Tea– for stamina and endurance, adaptogenic and stress relieving properties
- Warming Digestive Tea– to soothe and heal gastric conditions, with anti inflammatory and demulcent properties
- Turkish Delight Tea– blood sugar balancing and great for toning mucus membranes, drying up little runny noses and balancing hormones.
- Pour water into medium saucepan and add herbal tea
- Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce to a simmer for about 45 minutes to an hour until the liquid has reduced by almost half. At that point, remove from heat and let cool enough to be handled. Pour through a strainer into a glass jar or bowl.
- Discard the herbal tea remains and let the liquid cool to lukewarm. When it is no longer hot, add 1 cup of honey and stir well.
- When honey is well mixed into the mixture, pour the syrup into a 500ml glass bottle of some kind.
- Store in the fridge and take daily for its medicinal properties or enjoy a desired
- Standard medicinal dose is ½ tsp to 1 tsp for kids and ½ Tbsp to 1 Tbsp for adults.
