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.

  • My idea of a web developer has always been some dude with glasses in a cubicle who is a huge Star Wars fan with little to no social skills outside of talking code.

Sometimes it feels a bit weird to call myself a developer because I don’t fit into that mold … at all.

I’m a WordPress developer who lives in the Rocky Mountains, on a dirt road, in a log cabin, with four dogs and two cats. I heat my home with a wood stove and and love to cook. I’m a huge bookworm and I’ve watched Gilmore Girls at least 10 times.

And yet … I love to code. Always have. I taught myself HTML and CSS when I was 13 and spent 6 months last year learning a back end languages at Denver University.

Sometimes my life feels like a huge contradiction. I’m surrounded by nature and the immensity of it - the beauty and the extreme weather that comes with living on top of a canyon.

But, I also love this other part of my life … the part that has always loved spending copious amounts of time on the computer creating.

There is no point I’m trying to make or some grand, wise, revelation to share. Just that I love these two aspects of my life that kinda seem opposite of one another - I enjoy a blend of both. This kinda life suites me.

  • Did my *first* live video on Facebook today, ah!

I talked about what you'll need in place BEFORE you start a website redesign to make sure your project goes smoothly.

I'm thinking about doing these Website Wednesday videos bi-monthly. Topics could include anything website-related like...
➖
✅ should I go with WordPress or SquareSpace?
✅ how to write website copy that converts
✅ where to source photos for your new website
➖
etc. Comment below if you'd like to see more content like this! A link to the video is in my bio.

  • What is making you happy right now?

Mine looks a lot like this - a road straight into the heart of the mountains.

It also looks like my new robot vacuum (hello #dogmom life), cinnamon spiced coffee, and adhering to my bedtime consistently this last week. Here's to another great week of 9pm bedtimes! #babygrandma
