Herbal Bee Tea


  • 1 tbsp Echinacea
  • 1 tbsp Peppermint
  • 1 tbsp Chamomile
  • 1 tbsp Yarrow
  • 1 tbsp Stinging Nettle
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Balm
  • 1 tbsp Thyme
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Sage
  • 4 cups Distilled Water
  • 1/2 cup Raw Honey


  • Make your dried tea mixture by mixing all of the herbs in a large mason jar or storage jar. Cap tightly, label, and store in your pantry until ready to use.
  • When ready to use, bring 4 cups of distilled water to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and add 3–4 tsp of dried tea to hot water. Allow to steep for 5–7 minutes.
  • Add honey once mixture is lukewarm. Mix well.
  • Pour tea into a glass jar and add to the feeder area of your hive (entrance feeders work well).
  • Remove the tea after 24 hours, as your tea will lose its medicinal potency after sitting for 12–24 hours.
  • Offer for general bee health every 1–2 months.
