Jar of honey infused with lavender buds

When my husband first brought home a jar of wildflower honey from our local beekeeper, I subsequently gave him the look . . . you know, the one that says “Honey is honey. Why is this the bees knees?”

Then I opened the jar – it smelled faintly of tender flower buds and was absolutely delicious drizzled over figs and goat cheese.

If you’re new to wildflower honey, here’s what you need to know. It’s a type of varietal honey, which basically means it’s unique because honeybees mostly make it from the nectar from a single variety of flower (aka the varietal). Orange blossom, clover, blueberry, and alfalfa are all popular ones.

Another varietal, buckwheat, was found in one study to ease nighttime coughing, which is why I use it in my homemade cough syrup.

In Southern France’s fields of Provence, bees make a famously delicious lavender honey. I’ve been super curious about it but prefer to buy honey locally whenever possible, so I decided to make this herbal honey infused with lavender blossoms.

Therapeutic Benefits of Herbal Honey

Although delicious drizzled over warm biscuits and many other ways we’ll discuss below, herbal honeys are more than just culinary delights. According to Herbal Medicine for Beginners:

Herbal honeys are profoundly medicinal – and they taste great. When herbs are infused into honey, the honey absorbs all the water-soluble components of the herb and all the volatiles (essential oils), as well. This yields an excellent extraction of the herb’s complex chemistry and preserves it very well.”

Lavender in particular is well-known for it’s stress-relieving, sleep enhancing properties, making this particular honey perfect for unwinding at the end of a long day.

They can be taken straight off the spoon, stirred into tea, or used to make homemade cough syrup,  or other herbal preparations like syrups, elixirs or oxymels.

Below you’ll find recipes for lavender, lemon-ginger, and rosemary-thyme infused honey. They each bring unique flavors (and therapeutic components) to the table, and all make delicious housewarming, birthday or holiday gifts.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Pour the honey over the blossoms and then stir to make sure the honey and blossoms are well-combined. 
  • Place the jar in a warm spot away from direct sunlight. The top of the fridge is a good, warm spot. 
  • Allow the honey to infuse for 1-4 weeks, turning the jar over every day to redistribute the blossoms. 
  • When the honey has reached the flavor intensity that suits you, place a mesh strainer over a medium bowl and pour the honey mixture into the strainer. Because honey is so thick it will take a long time to strain, so wait a few hours before checking on it. 
  • Once you've finished straining out the lavender buds, don't toss them! Store them in the fridge and stir them into tea for an extra flavor boost.
