: QUEEN BEE GHEE : + the Royal Shatavari
:: QUEEN BEE :: 🐝 The first ghee flavor we ever made was ghee with a touch of honey : Honey Ghee. I wanted to name it Queen Bee Ghee back then, but there wasn’t much room on the tiny label which had to fit on the top of a mason jar. 😐(Who remembers those days?) A couple months ago during a tea ceremony with myself I got really clear that we don’t make “flavors”. Sure, the recipes are crafted to invite pleasure to your tastebuds - but the intention always runs deeper. Food medicine. This is when we added Shatavari to the recipe : in Ayurveda Shatavari is prized as “the Queen of herbs” 👑 The ghee, honey, and Shatavari are swirled with vanilla bean and a touch of cardamom. Now Queen Bee Ghee can truly live up to the title. 🏹
We have always sourced (and still do) our raw honey locally from a farm that I lived on when I first became a mama. My son was born there, amongst the buzzing of those bees. 🍯 The honey is never heated during extraction (to preserve the enzymes) and we cool the ghee before pouring in the raw honey. 💗
Shatavari supports female health from menarche to menopause, conception to postpartum, and any hormonal imbalance or issue in between. “It’s been used for centuries to help women with their reproductive health, restore and balance hormones, increase libido, fight fatigue, treat PMS and menopausal symptoms, support healthy production of breast milk, strengthen the immune systems, and improve digestive health,” says Cecilia Lacayo, MD, a physician at the biostation, a facility which offers sexual and reproductive health services in Delray Beach and Miami, Florida.
Also known as wild asparagus, shatavari is an Ayurvedic herb that’s found in the tropical areas of Asia, India, Australia, and Africa. It’s of a unique family of herbs known as adaptogens, meaning it gives your body what it specifically needs in order to bring it back to homeostasis (or balance). This can range from fighting off the negative effects of stress to increasing your milk supply after giving birth.
