Cold and Flu Needs at the Local Farmer’s Markets!

Today and tomorrow are the last two Farmer’s Markets for the Manifest Nest until March! I just can’t believe how fast this year is already passing! And spring is definitely here at the Beaches, as my peach tree is in full bloom!

Today is the Grand Opening of the Atlantic Beach City Market, aka the ABC Market! I am honored to be participating! The ABC Market is located at New Friendship Church on the corner of Mayport and Dutton Island Roads. Market Hours are 3-6pm.

Tomorrow is the Beaches Green Market at Jarboe Park in Neptune Beach on the corner of 3rd Street and Florida Blvd. Market Hours are 2-5pm.

It would appear that there are many of you feeling a bit under the weather so, I’ve been diligently making your cold and flu needs.

I have a new batch of Fire Cider Tonic and a Fire Cider Tonic Especial that has fresh, organic turmeric root in it! The taste is nearly the same, but the benefits are increased. Both will help to keep your digestive system and circulatory system pumping, while also containing many anti-virals and anti-bacterials to fight off any germs. The turmeric root will also help with inflammation throughout the body. It is also full of antioxidants and a powerful immune enhancer.

I have Elderberry Syrup and Immuni-tea full of immune boosting herbs to help your body fight any germs that may have gotten you already and to help your body prevent them taking ahold. I know I’ve been taking it 2-3x a day, as more and more people have been coming by sick to the apothecary!

I also have Cold and Flu tincture, which I believe to be our strongest cold and flu remedy. These are the herbal big guns. When you know you are sick this tincture can really help your body fight. The goldenseal root is one of nature’s natural antibiotics and the two kinds of echinacea help dry up mucus and boost your immune system.

I also have lots of other lovely herbal products, and will have a bit of the garden’s abundance with me! Come on by and see all the things our local farmers, bakers, and other artisans have to share with you!

And don’t forget elderberry syrup to support your immune system as it adapts to the ever changing weather and many germs going around! 
I’ve also got another new offering for today! It’s a Lavender Rose Facial Spray! It’s perfect for balancing skin, soothing chapped, dry skin, great for healing and preventing acne and as a general toner and can be used to cool hot flashes, which we know also happen on chilly days!

Hope to see you!

Elderberry Syrup

Here at The Manifest Nest Herbal Apothecary we have been hard at work building immune systems and flushing out fevers. As soon as one of our favorite 3 year old princesses came down with a fever we got straight to work making a syrup that is not only extremely effective, but also tasty enough that she was asking for more.

Today we made a brand new batch of Elderberry Syrup chock full of Organic Elder Berries (Sambucus nigra) and Raw, Local, Wildflower Honey.

Elderberries are excellent for immune support. They are full of vitamin C, are anti-viral, and great at combating colds and flus. We have also added Organic Ginger (Zinger officinale) for its warming and decongesting effects, and its ability to aid upper respiratory issues, colds, flus and sore throats. Organic Chamomile (Matricaria chamomile) was added for its ability to relieve aches, pains, headaches, and reduce fevers. Chamomile is also excellent at supporting the nervous system and ensuring a restful sleep. As a strong diaphoretic (sweat inducer) Organic Yarrow Flowers (Achillea millefolium) take the stage for fever reduction. A few whole Cloves (Syzgium aromaticum) were added for their antiseptic and antispasmodic (suppression of muscle spasms) effect. Instead of the sugar often found in traditional syrups, we used Raw, Local, Wildflower Honey for its sweetness as well as its ability to suppress coughs and its antiviral, antibacterial properties.
