The Magic of Oxymels with Rosalee de la Forêt

Rosalee de la Forêt, herbalist and author of the best selling book, The Alchemy of Herbs spends time sharing with Herb Nerd Society members about a delicious herbal option that is growing in popularity. Oxymels used to be considered old fashioned medicine. As more information on the healing power of both vinegar and honey is coming to light, oxymels recipes are reappearing. Many healers have faith in the power of herbal vinegars to heal a variety of conditions but sour flavors are still very unpopular with a variety of patients. How do you increase patient compliance? This is when honey comes to the rescue. These 2 flavors may seem to be juxtaposed on the spectrum of tastes but with the right balance, they blend together magically. Rosalee shares her favorite tips for making oxymels to support the respiratory system. Bronchial complaints are common. Many an herbalist has been called on to deal with congestion and mucus. This recording was designed to help formulate an effective vinegar-based syrup which can be made in a day.
