Spring is a best time to collect and conserve medicinal and aromatic herbs. Some herbs can only be collected in spring – such as flower buds and sprouts of some berries.
This spring my special mix is collected in Russia. Because of the very short summer season, the spring comes and rolls out very fast, spring medicinal herbs shoot out in a matter of hours, carrying a blast of natural micro elements, making POLZA VESNA mix very potent and flavorful.
POLZA VESNA mix includes:
Rose hip leaves and buds
Raspberry leaves and buds
Black currant leaves and buds
Wild strawberry leaves
This spring (yes, “VESNA” is Russian for “spring”) POLZA VESNA mix is so medicinally potent and full of flavor, one teaspoon is enough to prepare a 1 liter (1quart) water infusion or infused vodka.
Buy a 100 ml. (3,3 oz.) jar and make spring last for few weeks or even month!
It is cold and flu season and I thought it is a good idea to produce a POLZA mix for such a time of the year!
To this special POLZA honey infusion I’ve added EUCALYPTUS leaves.
Eucalyptus leaves are a great source of antioxidants, known to relieve cold symptoms, reduce pain (thanks to high containment of cineole and limonene). It may promote relaxation and even improve your dental health!
Honey infused with a mix of wild and cultured herbs. It is tasty. It is healthy. It is natural. It is good for you!
You can make a great cup of hot or iced tea with this infused honey. Rest assured – every cup will be full of flavor and goodness!
Spread a teaspoon on a piece of a warm bread and you have wholesome snack. Same teaspoon added to a bowl of oatmeal turns it into a flavorful breakfast which will keep you full of energy for good many hours.
Add it to salad or to appropriate dishes while cooking – new taste will surprise and excite your loved ones and guests.
