At Harvesting Vitality, we are deeply passionate about botanicals, crazy about magical bee nectar, and even more in love with the marriage of plant medicines and honey.
The History of Herbs and Honey
The blending of herbs and honey is a practice likely far more ancient than our written texts lead us to believe. Humans have evolved with plants forever; we are intimately infused with and genetically, psychologically, and spiritually changed by them.
We experience them through the food we eat, the botanical medicines we ingest, and through the countless ways we come into contact with the plant world.
Reverence for Bees
Bees are one of the most intriguing and mysterious creatures on this planet. They are also among the most important for life as we know it.
The reverence given to bees through the many culturally diverse ancient schools of worship and gods devoted to these insects only gives us a tiny semblance of understanding that ancient peoples had of bees and their significance to life on Earth.
And, through all of the life-giving work they offer, they create the most delicious, healing nectar. They could never receive enough praise for all that they do for us and this world.
Our honeys are potent; this helps to minimize the amount of high-quality raw clover honey we use while maximizing the medicinal healing capacity in each jar.
A practice of gratitude and praise to all life, and particularly to the bees, while making and taking this form of botanical medicine is a healing practice for both the self and the world.
We encourage you to take on this daily practice in whatever way fits your unique being.
