One of the videos from a series of shorts I made for the Oakland-based blog “The Dabblist.”

Herbal Honey with Calendula, Lavender, & Elderflower:
1 8 oz jar raw honey
approx 1/4c. dried herbs (in this case – calendula, lavender, and elderflower)
cheesecloth + string
Combine your dried herbs in cheesecloth, and secure with string. Pour your honey into the jar you want to use to infuse (be sure it’s thoroughly clean). Place your herb tea bag in the honey and gently push down to be sure it’s fully submerged. Place jar in a sunny window sill (or outside on an area that gets a lot of sun) and let sit for 3-5 days. Be sure to secure the jar with a lid (sorry I didn’t do this for the video, oops!). When ready, gently remove the herbs from your honey and squeeze out all the extras. Label and enjoy!
