Chickweed (Stellaria media) is a wonderful, abundant green ally to seek out in Spring or Fall that you can use in salads, smoothies and pesto.
This is a fresh tincture that offers a soothing cooling effect. Indicated for 'hot colds', 'hot bladders' as well as assisting to "dissolve and break down unwanted matter, including disease-causing bacteria, cysts, benign tumors, thickened mucus in the respiratory and digestive systems, and excess fat cells."

Goldenrod (Solidago sp.) Oxymel is a medicinal honey + apple cider vinegar blend. This is an age old remedy traditionally used for herbs that weren't so pleasant tasting. Not so with this one! Also note that taste and smell are key indicators of a well made plant remedy.
I find this remedy to be warm and soothing. It's a wonderful aid as a decongestant and digestive support, as well as being anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, astringent and a diuretic. Specifically supports the kidneys and bladder. Reduces fever.It's effective at alleviating upper respiratory congestion stemming from allergies, sinusitis, flu, or the common cold.
I made this oxymel because I had an enormous field of Goldenrod behind my house that kept beckoning me! The Apple Cider Vinegar I made from elder apple trees on the land and I used local Appalachian honey.
