Winter Solstice Oxymel
4oz of our limited-run seasonal oxymel (roughly 16 servings)
Delicious in a cup of tea or added to seltzer water as a non-traditional winter switchel.
When we start with an ancient preparation that holds a base of apple cider vinegar and local honey (on their own bringing so much medicinal value) add wildcrafted herbs the result is a truly heart-centered experience. These medicinals have been allowed to slowly infuse their unique properties together in the same symbolic way that we have the capacity to bring ourselves into authentic connection with each other.
Rose hips are a tremendous source of vitamin C and flavonoids. The combo is an anti-inflammatory/antioxidant compound easily absorbed by the body. Rose is considered a heart-centered herb associated with Venus and represents love, protection, and hopeful intentions. The plants become pieces joined into a whole process that is a soul/body integration. Yarrow is basically their own apothecary with a vast range of uses.
This preparation coaxes from them the most glorious flavonoids and alkaloids that nudge body systems into alignment - especially those systems overwhelmed by chronic stressors. The Oxymel is nutrient-dense, nourishing, nudging, and aiding the body into alignment. Providing a link missing from our often rushed daily lives - to intrinsically magical and profound ancestor medicinals.
Take 1-2 teaspoons a day. You can take it straight up or mix it in your favorite tea or a glass of water
