Have you heard of medicinal mushrooms? Sorry to sound like Aladdin, but it really is a whole new world!

I came across reishi during my adrenal fatigue journey because one of its uses is as an adaptogen, or an herb that helps the body adapt to stress.

I add mushroom magic, a dropper bottle of mushroom goodness, to my coffee every morning. I notice that I don’t have any jitters and it seems to have cleared my brain fog! WOOT! So I wanted to discover other ways I could use incredible funghi that’s known as the “tree of life mushroom”.

From my studies at the Herbal Academy, I learned about preserving herbs in honey, known as an electuary. An electuary is a method of preserving herbs in honey. I love the cacao and reishi combo, so I knew it would make a great herbal honey. These herbs combined can help with inflammation, stress, and support both your immune and cardiovascular systems. As with all things natural, please consult your physician before using herbs for your wellness.

It’s tastes like a chocoatey chai, so you can’t really go wrong!

To make it you’ll need:

1 cup raw unfiltered honey
3 tsp cacao powder ( mountain rose herbs | amazon)
1 tsp ceylon cinnamon (starwest botanicals | mountain rose herbs | amazon)
1 tsp vanilla (starwest botanicals | amazon)
1/4 tsp black pepper

Add 1 tsp into a mug of your favorite warm milk, coffee, or tea or just from a spoon! Note that some settling is normal, so give it a gentle stir before each use. 

If you would prefer not to make your own, you can always grab some from my shop.

Store in a cool place. It can be refrigerated but not necessary.
