Recipe for General Strengthening:
Quantity is for two treatments- you need two 1-quart jars
In a ceramic or stainless steel pot (not aluminum) bring 3 cups of good water (well or spring is best) to a boil, take off stove and add:
1/2 tsp. each of chamomile, yarrow, stinging nettle, peppermint and dandelion flowers, if available
1/4 tsp. each of sage, hyssop, thyme, lemon balm and echinacea
1 pinch of rue
Let steep for 10 minutes. Strain through a cloth or fine colander; add another 3 cups of cold water and let cool down until its lukewarm.
Add 1 cup (1/2 lb) organic sugar. Preferably white because the brown or succanant contains too many organic compounds which are hard for the bees to digest.
This quantity is good for two treatments or two hives. If you have only one hive, keep the second jar in the refrigerator until used, but warm up to room temperature before you give it to the bees.
This treat can be given early spring until late summer every one or two months.
