Three Homemade Honey Infusions

honey2

I like making things at home when I can, but I tend to stay away from complicated recipes. Thankfully these honey infusions are as simple as it gets and the health benefits of honey really pay off!

Honey can be used to treat burns and dry skin, can enhance memory and the immune system, soothe a sore throat, and it acts as a natural energy booster. Below are three of my favorite honey infusions to make and have on hand in the kitchen.

Lemon + Honey + Cinnamon Cough Syrup
Cinnamon is a spice that’s been used for thousands of years in the art of healing. It has plenty of antioxidants, helps to lower blood pressure, can aid in weight loss, and boosts memory. Combine that with fresh lemons which flush toxins and increase energy levels, and that makes this homemade cough syrup one serious remedy! It’s also quite delicious.

You’ll need:
1 cup honey
Juice of one lemon
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
4 cinnamon sticks

Directions: Heat ingredients over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring so it doesn’t burn. Burn honey looses it’s health benefits and quality flavor. The really low heat is just to help thoroughly combine the ingredients. After 10 minutes, remove from heat and transfer to a sealable glass jar. Let sit for at least two hours, and up to two weeks. The longer it infuses the more flavorful it will become. Strain before use.

How to use: Place a heaping spoonful of the honey syrup into the bottom of a mug. Add hot water and a tea bag.

honey4Ginger + Honey
This ginger honey infusions is a great remedy for stomach issues and helps with flushing toxins from your body.

You’ll need:
1 cup honey
A few strips of raw ginger
A pinch of ground ginger

How to use: Place a heaping spoonful of the honey syrup into the bottom of a mug. Add hot water and a tea bag.

honey5Mint + Honey
Mint leaf can help with digestion, nausea and headaches, helps relieves congestion, and stimulates weight loss.

You’ll need:
1 cup raw honey
1 cup fresh mint leaves

Directions: Combine mint and honey into a sealable jar and let sit for 2 weeks. Strain before use.

How to use: Add a tablespoon of the infusion to a cup of hot water and enjoy! I like to drizzle it on top of my greek yogurt and berries in the morning. It not only sweetens it up but adds another layer of flavor! So delish.

  • Met with the @nederlandctcc this morning at one of my favorite local coffee spots @saltocoffee to chat about doing some volunteer work with them for their marketing and website design. They do a lot of great work with the local youth in the area and I’m excited to bring my skills to the table and help them get the word out! Stay tuned - we have some neat ideas up our sleeve.

  • I’ve been going back and forth about what I want to post here on this account. It started as a personal account to share photos of life in Philly (now the mountains), books I’m reading, and of course cute dog photos.

But lately I’ve been sharing a bit more about what I do as a web designer and developer. It’s hands down the best job I’ve had so far. I love being able to blend tech and creativity every day. I also get to work with other people who are super passionate about what they do and get to be a small part of their journey. It’s pretty awesome.

I hope you don’t mind, and might even enjoy, when I share what I’m working on. One reason I like sharing this is to show that you don’t have to be a typical computer science nerd to be a developer. You can be a person like me … who lives in a log cabin, with satellite internet, eat tacos on the regular, and happens to get excited about creating with code. 💻👩🏼‍💻

  • Should you buy a pre-made theme or go with a custom web design?

In my latest blog post I explore when it makes sense to buy a pre-made WordPress theme and when it’s beneficial to work with a website designer to create a custom theme for your business (link in bio). #westcodigital #webdesign #webdesigner  #webdeveloper #webdevelopment #wordpress #wordpressdesigner #womenintech #learntocode #girlswhocode #remotework #workfromhome #denverco #boulderco #godlenco #coloradodesigner #coloradowebdesign #workfromwherever #womenwhohustle  #womenowned #smallbizsquad #femalefounder
