The Strength energy combined with the Garlic energy make for a strong partnership.

Courage dwells in the soft spirit of Garlic to easily meet adversity with inner fire. Garlic strengthens the heart and increases stamina. You have the power to persevere. Cultivate reliable habits that enhance vitality.

Planting garlic around the roots of roses strengthens the leaves, encouraging more flowers to bloom.

Cooking with garlic daily boosts the immune system, protecting against illness. Drinking garlic tea heats up the body, igniting passion.

Step into your power, but remember, a compassionate approach is powerful. Adding honey to garlic tames the medicine, making it more effective and palatable. Embrace both the gentle and the wild within with Garlic


Recipe for Garlic Honey

If the raw honey you find is solid at room temperature, warm it in the microwave or in a saucepan over low heat to bring it back to a liquid state before using for this recipe. You can drizzle this honey over pepperoni pizza (trust!), serve alongside spicy fried chicken, use in a glaze for grilled pork or fish, and/or add a few spoonfuls to savory cornbread.

Makes about 2 cups

12 garlic cloves (about 1 head), crushed

1½ cups raw honey


A heatproof 1-qt. jar

  1. Step 1 Place garlic in jar. Pour honey over garlic and stir to combine, making sure all the garlic gets coated. Seal jar and let sit at room temperature 3 days. Unscrew and remove lid to let out any gases; give garlic honey a stir. (You’ll most likely see tiny bubbles at this stage, which means the fermentation process has started.) Reseal jar and let sit, stirring once every other day, at least 1 week before using.
  2. Step 2 Do Ahead: Garlic honey can be made 1 month ahead. Keep room temperature.
