Apiary Bitters offers a curious combination of floral and aromatic herbs to decongest, provide histamine support, and ease inflammation during allergy season.
Nettle, reishi, and goldenrod help to ease common allergy symptoms like itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, and congestion. Willow provides additional anti-inflammatory support, while wild bergamot helps to decongest and offers a warm-spice savory note to the blend.
Burdock root, artichoke leaf, and red clover blossom round out this formula and provide a deep-green herbaceous note that is both grounding and enlivening at the same time.
To use: 2-3 dropperfuls on your tongue up to three times per day, before meals, in a gin martini or mezcal margarita, or in a glass of sparkling water with a squeeze of lemon.
Take these bitters at any sign of allergy symptoms or throughout the day for preventative support. You can also take 1-2 dropperfuls as a digestive aid, 15-20 minutes before a meal to ignite the digestive fire, helping with appetite regulation and digestive enzyme production.
Nettle Leaf — an herbal antihistamine, nettle is known for its stimulating sting when brushed against, but once processed by cooking or drying, it transforms, leaving the sting behind and activating its powerful anti-inflammatory benefits.
Goldenrod — Goldenrod helps ease allergy symptoms through the toning, drying, and antimicrobial actions upon the upper respiratory mucous membranes, combined with its eliminative actions. It is also rich in antioxidants, further supporting the body's innate resilience.
Burdock Root — We use fresh burdock root in this blend to capture its bittersweet and earthy flavor. Rich in nourishing starches, burdock adds a demulcent and rich mouthfeel to the blend while offering its alterative properties to "restore the primal blueprint of health" in the words of Matthew Wood.
Reishi Mushroom — Reishi contains anti-inflammatory compounds that inhibit inflammation and histamine, the chemical responsible for allergic symptoms such as runny nose and watery eyes. As an immune modulator Reishi can help tame overactive immune states (like allergy states) and awaken underactive immune systems.
Cautions: Consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant, taking diuretics, or are on a fluid restriction.
