Ok just what is an electuary?

Electuary is a fancy name for powdered herbs mixed into honey and this recipe also adds ghee to the honey base.

Honey and ghee–they’re both delivery mediums. What they do is help to deliver herbs deeper into the body. They also enhance digestion and the nutritional properties that are in the herbs. This is a not so common, great way to take herbs!

With cardamom, hawthorn berries and honey as some of the ingredients, you can’t go wrong!!


Full of flavonoids, cardamom reduces inflammation throughout the entire cardiovascular system. It also reduces platelet aggregation which is when blood cells stick together, creating thicker, harder to pump blood.

Hello I’m Kami, Welcome to Living Awareness!

I believe every family needs to have someone on board with a working knowledge of natural remedies if you want to take care of your family’s health for real.

When I was growing up, natural remedies was not a mainstream concept like it is now, in fact, you are going to be surprised that I never even heard the word natural remedy until I moved out of the house!

In my early 20’s I met someone by chance that told me about holistic health and herbal medicine. I wondered why nobody had talked to me about it before and had a voracious appetite to learn everything I could.

Now, 30 years later I've helped thousands of people demystify the world of herbal medicine and become empowered in using herbal self-care in their home to prevent illness, take care of common ailments and protect their health naturally.

For 20 years I've had a clinical herbal practice connecting people with plants and their wellness. I've developed and taught herbal curriculum for UCSF School of Nursing and the Integral Health Master’s Degree Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies.

Stick with me! You’ll learn awesome herbal self-care, get inspired to be more self-sufficient in your health care and nourish a deep love for the herbs and how to use them, knowing you are doing the very best you can to care for your wellness.

Could you substitute coconut oil for the ghee, or would that change how it works in your body?
Also, with all the anti-inflammatory properties, would it be safe to assume it would help reduce cholesterol?
