Philosophy

Our mission is to revive the ancient use of medicinal herbs for the treatment of common ailments. Herbee combines a potent, organic herbal extract with organic, local honey to create an effective natural treatment for indoor and outdoor allergies. 

 

What is an 'Electuary'?

An electuary is a combination of powdered medicinal herbs stirred into honey to create a palatable herbal remedy. This technique was used as part of herbal medicine for thousands of years until relatively recently. Today, pharmaceutical companies mix their drugs into artificial syrups and mixtures to make them palatable for consumption.

 

Urtica Dioica

Urtica Dioica, commonly known as stinging nettle, is a perennial plant that grows in the spring and summertime. It has traditionally been used for the disorders of the kidney, urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract, skin, cardiovascular, rheumatism and gout. It is widely used in alternative treatments of seasonal allergies. It has many properties that offer allergy relief, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, hypotensive, diuretic,  hypoglycemic, antiviral, and antioxidant. 

 

Sourcing

We use only the raw honey sourced from sustainable apiaries. Honey has many medicinal properties and also contains trace amounts of pollen that when ingested can help alleviate allergy symptoms.
