Recently I got the opportunity to provide some advice about methods of infusing honey with the wonderful Jillian of Asheville Bee Charmer – a delightful day surrounded by bee and honey related products, and a HONEY TASTING BAR. No kidding. I mean, really. Honey from Africa, France, Ireland, and of course, the US. There’s the dark, rich carrot honey, an amazingly toe-curlingly rich Dandelion honey (a jar came home with me) and well…I could go on for hours. If you come to Asheville, VISIT THEM! If you can’t visit, you can order honey & other products online!

Mountain Rose Herbs is partnering with the American Herbal Products Association’s Foundation for Education and Research on Botanicals. In collaboration with the Missouri Botanical Garden and the Rio Grande National Forest Service, they are raising funds to continue a study that will help determine the range, availability, and recovery rate of Osha (Ligusticum porteri) after harvesting from the wild. Here’s their whole article…but the jist of it is that during the month of February, Mountain Rose Herbs will match your donation dollar-for-dollar up to $2,000 to fund this study!
