Valentine's Day Special

Valentine's Day Special

Valentine's Day is just two weeks away! At our next couple of markets, Forest & Meadow Apothecary and Herbal Clinic will be featuring some lovely herbal potions for you to share with your sweetie. 

The first is our Sweet Rose Elixir. We combine organic Red Rose Petal-infused brandy with organic Red Rose Petal-infused raw, local honey from Faust Bee Ranch. It soothes, calms, and uplifts the heart with a delicate, floral sweetness that we find absolutely irresistible. Take it on its own or try adding some to sparkling water for a yummy bubbly beverage to enjoy on Valentine's Day.

The next is our Chocolate Love Tonic - an herbal aphrodisiac at its finest (and tastiest)! It features organic Damiana and Cinnamon-infused brandy, combined with homemade chocolate sauce made with raw, local honey from Faust Bee Ranch. We then finish off this love-inspiring treat with a splash of Rose Water. The Chocolate Love Tonic holds a very special place in my heart, as my husband and I made a big batch together and offered it as favors at our wedding last fall! Our guests loved it and many of them keep asking us to make more! We enjoy taking a few droppers-full at a time, adding a bit to some coffee at the end of a meal, or even using it as a special topping for ice cream. 

$12 each or two for $20.
(Taxes included in price.)

Want to make sure we'll still have some in stock? Place your order ahead of time and we'll have it ready for you at the market of your choice!

Remedies to Wrap Up Cold & Flu Season

Remedies to Wrap Up Cold & Flu Season

Cold and flu season isn't over yet - as much as we want it to be! There's another bout of the flu makin' the rounds in St. Louis so come to the Schlafly Winter Market tomorrow from 9 am - 1 pm and grab some herbs to support your immune system and your body's innate defenses. 

We'll be sampling our Cold & Flu Tea, a mix of Yarrow leaf and flower, Elder flower, Elder berry, Peppermint, and Lobelia flowering tops. It works with the body's natural processes to fight infection, not suppress them. Often when we start feeling those common signs of the flu - chills, achiness, fever - we reach for over-the-counter medicines that help us get rid of those uncomfortable symptoms. This is totally understandable, because who wants to feel awful and under the weather? But it's those symptoms that let us know our body is hard at work to mount a defense against invading microorganisms! Using our Cold & Flu Tea, along with adequate rest, hydration, and nourishment, helps support the body to move through illness with greater ease and often in a more timely fashion.

Our Cold & Flu Tea will be sweetened with our delicious Elderberry Syrup, another fantastic ally for cold and flu season. Studies have shown that compounds in elderberries can activate the immune system and help prevent viral replication in the body, resulting in quicker recovery time in folks treated with elderberries vs. those that aren't. Our Elderberry Syrup is a tasty, easy-to-take formula for folks of all ages and it now contains raw, local honey from Faust Bee Ranch! (For this reason, do not administer it to children under 1 year of age.) Add it to your favorite tea, take it by the spoonful, or even use it as a yummy addition to pancakes - it works wonderfully as an acute remedy or taken regularly as a daily tonic.

Get Your Superhero Cider this Saturday!

We'll be slingin' our super popular Superhero Cider this Saturday at the Schlafly Farmers Market from 9 am - 1 pm. We've sold out at every market so far, so make sure you get there early to grab a bottle!

In our Superhero Cider we combine potent foods and spices like onion, horseradish, garlic, jalapeños, cayenne, turmeric, thyme, rosemary, and ginger, and infuse them into raw apple cider vinegar for several weeks. Then we strain it and add local Missouri Honey from Faust Bee Ranch. It's a spicy, enlivening tonic to support healthy immune function that can be used on a daily basis or taken every few hours at the onset of cold and flu. 

Superhero Cider has become a staple in our house, especially since this year's flu season has been so rough! My husband, Luke, works at an elementary school so he's constantly around a plethora of germs. At the first sign of even a tickle at the back of his throat or a general feeling of being run down when he knows he's more susceptible to catching something, I'll pour him up a few shots of Superhero Cider to take between when he gets off work and bedtime. So far, our house has been flu free!! (knocking on wood...) 

We'll have free samples of Superhero Cider at our booth so you can give it a whirl and taste for yourself how deliciously powerful it is! See you Saturday!
