Honey Fermented Garlic

Honey Fermented Garlic

Honey fermented garlic can be used to combat cold and flu, used as an immune booster, or simply as a condiment to add a honey garlic flavor to any dish. Whether you call it ‘honey infused garlic’ or ‘honey fermented garlic’ – the final product has both the flavors of honey and garlic!  You end up with garlicky honey and sweet mellowed garlic.


Since the beginning of time garlic and honey have been used in traditional medicines around the world. The main health ingredient in garlic is allicin. It contains oxygen, sulfur, and other chemicals that give garlic antibacterial and disease-fighting properties.

Honey is naturally high in antioxidants called flavonoids and polyphenols. These chemicals may help to fight inflammation (redness and swelling) in the body. This can help balance the immune system. Honey also has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties according to many documented sources.

The typical use of garlic is to treat colds and coughs.  It’s also reported to boost the immune system and help ease asthma symptoms. Arab traditional medicine recommended garlic to help treat heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, toothache, constipation, and infections.

Both garlic and honey are high in antioxidant compounds. These healthy chemicals help to balance your immune system and may prevent illness. According to some researchers they may also protect your brain from common diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Why make honey fermented garlic?

  • It’s just fun!
  • Well, it’s not so much fun after you peel 24 garlic buds and your fingers are now on fire!
  • It’s quite easy
  • You appreciate the medicinal qualities of honey & garlic and want to take advantage of their anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and immune boosting properties
  • You grow your own garlic and you want to naturally preserve your garlics for long term storage without refrigeration
  • You want to eat more raw garlics for the health benefits but can’t tolerate the pungent taste
  • You love honey garlic flavored foods and want to have a naturally preserved honey garlic condiment on hand to add to your dishes
  • You want to take advantage of having it on hand as a cold and flu remedy
  • I personally use it as a daily immune booster and for cardiovascular health.  It’s relatively inexpensive and it tastes good (especially after it has fermented for awhile)

While it is based on anecdotal evidence that it works as a cold and flu remedy – many use it for those reasons.  They are both powerful antimicrobials and honey is also a natural cough suppressant.   It’s also much easier to consume honey fermented garlic rather than raw garlic in my opinion.

Fermentation Tips

It is important to understand how fermentation works.

  1. You want just enough honey to cover the garlic, not too much. The garlic will release moisture into the honey to set the stage for the start of fermentation.
  2. The garlic should be kept under the liquid to prevent mold growth. Since garlic naturally floats on top of the honey, I typically tip the jar upside down at least once daily.  In addition, especially for the first few days it is good to stir it.  It’s important to ensure that all garlic cloves are coated in honey. These steps should be continued until the garlic no longer floats.
  3. When you see bubbles, this means that the fermentation has begun.  These bubbles will be produced varying from a little to a lot. Sometimes, the bubbling can be very active; overflowing the jar.
  4. I always keep the jars on a tray or something so that when there is overflowing (because it will!) I don’t mess up a whole cupboard.  It is important to leave plenty of head space in the jar when fermenting honey and garlic.  This step may save you from ending up with a sticky mess. It’s also crucial to open the lid of the jar daily to “burp” to release the carbon dioxide. The bubbling will subside over the weeks, and eventually you will not see bubbles produced nor will you need to release carbon dioxide from the jar.
  5. If too much honey is used, the mixture may not reach the moisture content required (18-20%) for the fermentation process to begin.

Color Changes 

As the honey fermented garlic continues to ferment it will change color.  Over time, the garlic cloves will gradually sink to the bottom of the jar, and the color of honey will gradually darken. In addition the honey will thin out over time due to the moisture released by the garlic.


  1. Prepare your glass jars by sterilizing or boiling them.  Have your lids available.  I use 1/2 pint (jam jars) or 1 pint wide mouth jars.
  2. Peel the garlic.  I cut large cloves so they are edible size.  Combine garlic cloves and just enough liquid raw honey to cover the garlic in a glass jar. The glass jar should be large enough to roughly double the capacity of your ingredients to leave room for expansion. Close the jar with a lid.
  3. Stir the mixture &/or flip the closed jar upside down daily (2 times a day is optimal) to ensure all garlic cloves are coated with honey.
  4. Within a few days, air bubbles should be forming, a sign of active fermentation. At this point it is important to open the jar daily to release excess carbon dioxide. If fermentation doesn’t begin by the third day, then add a spoon or 2 of water into the mixture. Repeat step 2.
  5. Continue this process until fermentation slows down, the honey thins out, the bubbling stops, and the garlic cloves sink to the bottom of the jar. It may take over a month. At this point, you can store the honey fermented garlic in a sealed jar, unrefrigerated, to let it age.

For best taste, the honey fermented garlic can be consumed after 3 months. The finished products can be stored in a dark place in room temperature for years.

Although the honey garlic tastes better as the flavors age and the garlic becomes mellower, you can eat it at any time.   Over time the flavor will continue to develop, the garlic will mellow, and the honey will become much runnier. It will store well in a cool place for many months, if not longer. 

How can you use the honey? 

It’s delicious on salads, on bruschetta, or as a marinate on chicken or fish.  Use it whenever you want a nice garlic honey taste.   You will find many delicious ideas on-line.

Capsicum, known as Cayenne, Hot Pepper

Ingredients:  High-proof grain alcohol, distilled water, cayenne peppers, local raw honey

Historically Capsicum has been used for many years. In 1833, Samuel Thomson wrote in his “New Guide to Health”, “I have made use of Cayenne in all kinds of disease, and have given it to patients of all ages and under every circumstance that has come under my practice; and can assure the public that it is perfectly harmless, never having known to produce any bad effects whatever. It is no doubt, the most powerful stimulant known, but its power is entirely congenial to nature, being powerful only in raising and maintain that heat on which life depends.”

Capsicum is often used when the circulatory system can benefit. It is typically used when body heat is low, and reaction sluggish.

It possesses an extraordinary power in removing congestion by its action upon nerves and circulation. (Practical Herbalism, Philip Fritchey, MH, ND)

Considerations: “The Physician’s Desk Reference for Herbal Medicines warns that long-term topical application can lead to blistering and skin ulceration, and that high doses taken internally over extended periods might bring about chronic gastritis, kidney and liver damage, and neurotoxic effects. Traditional herbalists strongly disagree, and the author’s experience has never given the slightest indication of persistent irritation or injury from the use of Capsicum, topically, or internally.” Practical Herbalism, Philip Fritchey, MH, ND)

Dosage:  Typically one drop under the tongue as needed.

As with any herbal preparation, dosage should be determined based on the status of your health and guidance from your practitioner.

What is the Bio-Mat?

  • What would it feel like to have more energy?
  • To experience less stress?  To be able to relax?
  • Are you feeling down or feeling the blues?
  • Do you experience joint pain or circulation issues?
  • Do you have reduced mobility because of pain and inflammation?
  • What if you could reduce that pain and improve the quality of your life?
  • Don’t live out of pain, embrace today and live life to its fullest.

Embrace thriving instead of surviving. Experience Vitality.

The Bio-mat uses a combination of fabrics and Amethyst stones to generate far- infrared rays which are then transferred to the body as heat.

Far infrared rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum that has been studied for various health benefits.  It provides warmth and relaxation similar to the energy that radiates from the sun.  These rays benefit the muscles on the surface of the body and all cells and body tissues deep in the body.  The warm stimulating waves increase local circulation and the deep tissue heat relaxes muscles and tissues surrounding joints relieving pain and discomfort.

Amethyst Crystals actually elongate and amplify the natural wavelength of the far-infrared rays, allowing them to penetrate up to 7 inches deep into the body. By comparison, other far infrared technologies may only penetrate less than half that depth. Amethyst’s healing properties have been acknowledged and celebrated for centuries by ancient scientists and healers. Now, modern science has confirmed the highly conductive properties of this remarkable mineral. Amethyst crystals offer the most consistent and powerful delivery of far infrared light waves and ionic effects on the human body.

Negative ions – or anions are atoms that have a greater number of electrons than protons which result in a negative charge.  These are abundant in nature.  Negative ions are believed to relieve stress and boost energy.

What is Mud-Packing?


Is NOT a beauty treatment. It does not diagnose, treat, or cure diseases.

What it is: An ancient holistic modality using highly nutritive mud to restore energetic disruptions in the body due to injury.  Mud Packing releases the energetic block that causes unwanted symptoms. We may not be aware of some symptoms.

Our body is pure energy that takes a physical form.  The energetic field in and around our bodies can get damaged from injuries, surgery, or trauma.  Those fields have a lingering energetic wound LONG after tissues had healed.  This may help to explain those that experience pain or symptoms that have not healed.

What’s a biofield? It’s the energetic flow in AND around your body.  It’s the subtle energy that keeps things moving, allows information to move to and from the cells and for your body to have the electrical supply to bring on healing.  Consider the effect of a kinked garden hose.  One side has too much flow and the other, a trickle, or no flow.   If the water needs to move from point A to point B to get the desired results, you have to UN-kink the hose!  If the body finally can receive the energy it’s been lacking, it gets to work QUICKLY to begin repairs.


Testimonials from others that have experienced mud-packing:

  • Embedded glass and splinters in feet and hands suddenly came out.
  • A quadriplegic woman felt new sensations.
  • A woman who was hit in the eye and back of the head with the handle of her bike felt relief AND had infected drainage leave her eye by the next day.
  • A heart surgery patient was wise and mud-packed as soon as his scars closed. Recovery was easier than expected.
  • One student worked on ONE spot on her head and ALL the other places we mapped out on her corrected.
  • A young girl had been hit on the head with a baseball bat. It left a dent in her skull about the size of a quarter and a 1/2” deep. She had daily migraines immediately after the injury.  By dinner, after mud-packing, the dent had risen by 2/3rds and the migraines stopped completely.
  • An individual had slipped and fallen on ice resulting in a concussion 25 years ago.  Her skull on the backside was flattened, and her head was extremely sensitive.  She wasn’t able to tolerate anyone touching her head.  On day one she was mud-packed with step 1, the downloads.  Day two her interference fields (injury sites) were mud-packed, and day three she came back with her story. That morning she realized that she could TOUCH HER HEAD, recklessly and without consequence!  THEN, she felt her skull which had completely reformed to its original shape!  25 years of pain and hypersensitivity GONE.
  • An individual with a 3-year-old concussion was still experiencing cognitive issues including not being able to with a lot of people because the noise caused head pain, words were lost in conversations, many pauses in thought processes, emotionally flat and difficulty driving at night because of the lights.   After one day of mud-packing including the downloads (Step 1), and the interference field associated with the brain injury immediate results were experienced.  Sensations in the head were felt, deep dreaming occurred and within a couple of days emotions were experienced and creativity in words and feelings were felt and be verbalized in an extremely passionate interchange!   J. H.

Will I need more than 1 Session?

  • This will depend on the energetic needs of the body.

Will there be mud placed all over my body?

  • This is not a muddy process!  Your practitioner will use small amounts of mineral mud on specific sites on your body to facilitate healing.

Will I feel the energetic shifts immediately?

  • While each person is different in how they feel energy; there is a possibility that you will feel tingling sensations or more at the time of the session.  Depending upon the session more processing may happen after our session together.  We are finding that shifts take place during the processing hours more than the actual session. Each individual will experience this differently.

How Does CBD Work With the Body?

There are more than 80 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants.  THC is primary,  followed by CBD. However, in the hemp plant, which is a different strain of the species Cannabis sativa, CBD is the main active ingredient, and THC is barely present, making its use and legality more widespread.  The reason that CBD is such an effective form of support for human health is due to the body’s endogenous cannabinoid system. This regulatory structure of the body has millions of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and nervous system, which react not only to plant-derived cannabinoids (such as hemp and marijuana) but also to natural cannabinoids produced within our body. When hemp oil is used and processed by the body, it is effectively boosting the function of the endocannabinoid system, helping our body to self regulate and bring itself into balance.

True CBD hemp oil contains high levels of cannabidiol.  It also contains vitamin, minerals, volatile acids, and antioxidants that will further supplement your health.

Benefits of CBD Oil

CBD oil has become very popular with people suffering from various health issues including:

  • Chronic pain and inflammation
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep disorders and insomnia
  • Anxiety, stress, and depression
  • Skin conditions
  • Low appetite and poor metabolic function
  • Weaker immune system
  • Chronic diseases and cancer

Relieves Pain

CBD oil due to its analgesic properties is commonly recommended for chronic pain of all kinds ranging from back pain to the full-body agony of cancer. It can disrupt the activity of pain receptors in the body and instead cause a release of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine – “feel good” compounds that can ease discomfort and pain, even if the pharmaceutical painkillers have no effect. Source:  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/BF00915771

Treats Nausea

CBD oil can assist with the symptoms of vomiting and nausea. The non-psychotropic components of this oil activate certain auto-receptors, which causes antiemetic/anti-nausea effects in the body.      Source:  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21827451

Lowers Inflammation

Inflammation is difficult to live with.  Many people can only find relief with CBD oil, particularly those with advanced cases of rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, migraines, joint disorders, and pervasive muscle pain. In some cases, people have reported nearly miraculous improvement in the inflammatory symptoms of chronic diseases. Source:  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168365903004152

Reduces Anxiety

CBD hemp oil is well known to reduce feelings of anxiety and stress.  It may prevent depressive episodes by increasing the levels of “positive” hormones and neurotransmitters in the body. Source:  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0278584606002612

Prevents Alzheimer’s Disease

A number of studies have connected the use of cannabidiol (CBD) with decreased occurrence and severity of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease. This presents yet another exciting development for medical researchers, given the persistent challenges to finding effective solutions for these conditions. Source:  http://www.pnas.org/content/95/14/8268.short

Treats Epilepsy

Highly concentrated doses of CBD oil have been successfully used to treat epilepsy in a number of research studies. While there has been quite a limited success in medication to prevent or treat epilepsy, the physical and neurological regulatory properties of CBD oil represent an exciting new solution for people with this seizure-inducing condition. Source:  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S105913111600011X

Prevents Cancer

A major reason why CBD oil has been positively received in some parts of the medical community is its apparent effect on cancer and tumor growth, In multiple studies, the use of CBD oil (even direct injection into tumors) has resulted in tumor reduction or elimination. The antioxidants in CBD hemp oil also provide anti-mutagenic properties and lower users’ risk of cancer.  Source:  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S000629520900971X


Studies performed on animals and humans have found that CBD oil has anti-psychotic properties. The research supports the idea that this oil could be a possible therapeutic option in treating psychosis such as schizophrenia.  Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22716160

Promotes Good Sleep

There is a strong sedative quality to CBD hemp oil, making it a popular remedy for people with insomnia, sleeplessness, interrupted sleep, post-traumatic stress disorder, restless leg disorder, and other night-time issues. Inhaling a small amount of CBD oil, applying it to your chest, or putting a few drops on your pillow can help you get the good night’s sleep you’ve been seeking. Source;  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5101100/

Boosts Immune System

The majority of cannabinoids have been proven to have positive effects on the body’s immune system, particularly CBD oil, as it can help regulate overactive immune systems. This means less susceptibility to allergens, and a possible application for autoimmune disorders, which are some of the most difficult-to-treat medical conditions.  Source: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0028390807001888

Skin Care

Improving the appearance of the skin, especially reducing the symptoms of acne and eczema, may possibly be benefits of regular CBD oil use. Topical application may be used, whether in a diluted or undiluted form, depending on the severity of the skin affliction. The powerful anti-inflammatory properties of the oil can also soothe redness, itchiness, and swollen areas of the skin. Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4151231/

Controls Diabetes

Studies show that cannabidiol present in CBD oil could possibly help in the control of diabetes and lower the level of insulin. Although a lot more research needs to be done in this area of study, initial studies have laid the foundation for the use of CBD oil to lower the risk for diabetics.

Promotes Heart Health

CBD oil is highly beneficial for the cardiovascular system too. Initial studies shows that it enhances the vasorelaxation of the arteries, protecting it against the vascular damage caused by inflammation in a high glucose environment. However, more studies need to be made in order to fully explore its dosage and effects on cardiovascular health.   Source:  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22670794

Reduces Drug Relapses

The non-psychoactive constituent of Cannabis sativa, cannabidiol, has therapeutic uses in treating psychiatric disorders. It is used to fight alcoholism and cocaine addiction, which means it may reduce alcohol and drug relapses.  Source:  https://www.nature.com/articles/s41386-018-0050-8

What Is CBD?


What is CBD? 

Cannabidiol or CBD, is a phytocannabinoid found in agricultural hemp.  Cannabidiol has been recognized for its benefits on human and animal health and is capable of affecting nearly every biological process. CBD is non-psychotoxic (i.e. it does not result in feelings of euphoria) and has a remarkable safety profile.  CBD is legal in all 50 states.

Cannabidiols, derived from hemp (Cannibis Sativa)  that have a high amount of CBD, that does not have the psychoactive properties, can be used in the management of a variety of disorders. Some of which includes anti-pain, anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, or even anti-spasm disorders without becoming sleepy or having the effects of euphoria that is characteristic of cannabis.

The U.S. Government filed a patent on cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants back in 1999. This patent was filed when they first started researching the healing benefits of CBD. CBD that is pulled from hemp plants is legal in all 50 states. (


What is THC? 

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant, also known as marijuana. When used, either through ingestion or inhalation, THC binds to specific receptors in the brain called cannabinoid receptors. In low doses, THC may reduce pain, and may reduce anxiety, Higher doses may cause the “high” associated with marijuana, leading to altered perception of time and space, feelings of happiness, or feelings of fatigue.

THC is a class 1 drug in most states which makes it illegal to be produced and administered. Many synthetic cannabanoids that are being made by the pharmaceutical industry have been tested, but have not been able to pass phase 3 trials which would allow them to be produced for the public in the U.S.

What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana? 

The plant Cannabis Sativa can be referred to as both marijuana and hemp.  If the plant has more than 0.3% THC by weight, it is considered marijuana.  If the plant has less than 0.3% of THC by weight, it is considered hemp. THC is the euphoric agent in marijuana. Hemp oil is the oil that has been extracted from the plant. It has many industrial uses and is used in fabric and rope.  CBD oil is hemp oil that has been further extracted and refined to be more concentrated, allowing higher levels of CBD and lower levels of other cannabinoids and terpenes.

What are Terpenes?
