One easy medicinal recipe to keep on hand in your home apothecary is Thyme Honey. It is versatile honey that can be used for cooking but for healing too. Here’s how to make it.

Thyme Honey

½ cup fresh thyme (¼ cup dried thyme can be substituted)

8 ounces honey

Gently heat the honey in a saucepan. (don’t boil honey, this removes all beneficial health benefits) Once it’s warm add thyme and stir for 10 minutes. Next, pour into a sterilized jar and put the lid on. Keep it in a warm place for 2-3 weeks. After the time, pour the contents into a saucepan and heat. (again, don’t boil) Next, strain the honey so all thyme is removed. Pour into a clean, and sterile jar with a lid. It will stay good for 1 year.

You can add a teaspoon to a cup of warm tea to soothe a cough or cold. Or you can eat a teaspoon right out of the jar.
