Honey Spreads

Here at Mockingbird Meadows we specialize in a line of honey spreads.  These are basically tinctures that are done in honey as opposed to alcohol, glycerine or vinegar. As an Herbalist who is also a beekeeper, my preferred medium is honey rather than pills, teas or tinctures.

The great thing about these honey spreads is they are accessible to ANYONE, they are DELICIOUS and solve a lot of typical problems:

1.  YOUR CHILD and natural medicines:

Ever tried to chase down a child to give them a pill or tincture drops?  Ever tried to get them to drink a bitter tea?  When herbs are formulated in honey they become a treat!

2.  An Acid Stomach, Religious or Health Reasons that cause you to be unable to use vinegar or alcohol tinctures.

Raw Honey is soothing and can be used by anyone to enjoy their herbs.  For those with blood sugar issues, raw honey is still a sugar and should be factored into the daily diet.  It does not cause the insulin spike that refined sugars cause and instead enters the blood slowly.

3. A worry that your body can’t actually absorb the nutrients in most supplements in pill form at the natural foods store.

Our Honey Spreads are made with our own RAW, LOCAL HONEY.  The herbs are freshly ground.  There are no artificial flavorings or colorings added.  It’s simply FRESH FOOD that your body recognizes as good nutrition.

4.  TASTE, TASTE, TASTE!!

Most of us have loved ones in our lives… and I’m talking about the adults here… that just won’t use natural products because they are bitter or otherwise unpalatable.

I work hard to ensure that our Honey Spreads are able to be eaten RIGHT OFF THE SPOON, but they can also be dropped into hot water, used as fruit dip, mixed in with yogurt or smoothies and more!

We currently make the following Honey Spreads:

Immun-I-Bee Honey Spread

Immun-i-Bee was formulated with cold and flu season in mind.  It can be taken daily, but is intended for those times when you think you’re going to need a boost- when you’re traveling or around other sick folks, or when you’re already getting sick to rally your body’s forces.  The elderberries come through making this berry-like with earthy notes from the shiitake.
