Bet you thought it was just a pretty garden plant, there to look good and smell divine. Aha, wrong, wrong, wrong – it has been used for centuries for fragrance in pot pourris, but most importantly as a healing herb.
Once dried thoroughly store like any other herb in a glass container with tight fitting lid and store in cool dark place.
Not just a pretty face, honeysuckle is delightful and useful and as sweet as its honey style name.
Honeysuckle Tea For Caughs;
Use 1 teaspoon of dried honeysuckle per cup of boiling water. Leave to infuse for 8 minutes. Sweeten with honey (or coures!) if you wish.
