We truly enjoy harvesting honeysuckle, as it surrounds our entire property! Every evening, when the aromatic compounds are at their strongest, we pick the flowers. It is a summer routine that we love doing. One of its top uses, that no one really seems to know about is that it is highly supportive of the respiratory tract.
It is a fundamental herb in traditional Chinese medicine for clearing “heat” and clearing toxicity, which is known as Tang Ben Cao (also known as the Tang herbal). I is considered “cold” and “sweet”, which they use to “put out fire” in the body and detox general toxicity, to replenish “Qi” or homeostasis and balance. In Chinese medicine, it is used by many for heart, lung, and stomach channels, or meridians. Honeysuckle is actually highly supportive of the lung and respiratory processes. It is actually an herb listed in many respiratory protocols and products, including our own. It is a powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory herbal. It is also considered to be amazing for immune support and as a broad-spectrum antiviral. It is also known as an antibacterial.
The compounds it contains that are attributed to medicinal uses are linalool, hexadecenoic acid, ethyl palmitate, flavonoids, triterpenoids, saponins, organic acids, iridoids, dihydrocarveol, and Aromadendrene.
Keep in mind that the aerial part products also contain a bit of flower. We offer aerial parts + flower or the blossom all by itself. If you purchase to make a tea, you may want to boil aerial parts, yet only steep the flower. The way teas are made depends on the plant parts that are used. No worries, brewing directions will come on the label!
We highly recommend getting 2 different variations of the following to know exactly what a specific herb will, or will not do for you, as well as to achieve saturation.
Standard Tincture – Herbal compounds extracted in an alcohol base. Alcohol offers a superior absorption rate. We recommend allowing your dose to sit under the tongue for 3+ minutes, then swallowing it down with a drink of water. Otherwise, you may add it to 4 oz. of water, juice, or a smoothie. Microscopic compounds are readily available to be absorbed through tissues, into the bloodstream, and then circulated to organs.
Lipospheric Tincture – This is a standard tincture that is put through an energetic process. We collide the herbal compounds with oxygen molecules, to encase them both within an oxygenated bubble. The difference can be clearly seen because the tincture lightens in color. The lipospheres’ may have the capability to surpass the bioavailability of a standard tincture, although it exhibits all of the same benefits.
Glycerite – Herbal compounds extracted in vegetable glycerin. This contains NO alcohol and NO sugar. The taste of glycerin resembles syrup, which makes it ideal for children. This version may be best for those highly sensitive or are seeking a nonalcoholic extraction. Doses may need to be up to three times higher than a tincture to receive similar benefits. They can be taken in the same way as tinctures, which is in 4 oz. of water, juice, or a smoothie.
Vegetarian Capsule – Size 00, vegetarian capsules, hand-encapsulated, to order. The capsule is swallowed with at least 4 oz. of water or juice, which is broken down by stomach acids. Once the herbal compounds go through digestion, they then get absorbed by tissues.
Herbal Tea – Teabags are handmade to order and can be brewed up to three times each. The constituents will be continually extracted with each brew. Be sure to squeeze the bag gently upon finishing your cup of lovely tea. The label specifies the brewing instructions, which highly depends on the parts of the plant that are used in the tea. Keep in mind, this is medicinal tea and there are no additives. It may be best to drink as is, without adding a sugar substitute. Don’t forget the slurry, medicinal residue that settles to the bottom of the cup!
Loose Herbal Powder – We take pride in the freshness and quality of our herbal powders, as we hand-grind down each herb to order, as well as in any above process. Our inventory of herbs is always purchased, when possible, in whole form, if it is not wildcrafted by us. We ethically wildcraft many herbs, which ensures the highest content of medicinal compounds and freshness. We also attempt to include every part of the plant, if possible. We believe wildcrafted, and full spectrum to be the superior version of any herb. If an herb is wildcrafted, it will indicate so on each label by the abbreviation “WC”. The same goes for full spectrum, as each label indicates the parts used. We give multiple part options for each herb individually as well.
All variations are animal & child-safe, at the appropriate dosage. View our child’s dosage guide by Clicking Here.
