Everything That You Ever Wanted To Know About Honeysuckle Medicinal Benefits

M.D. Creekmore

I've been interested in self-reliance topics for over 25 years. I’m the author of four books that you can find here. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about prepping, homesteading, and self-reliance topics through first-hand experience and now I want to share what I’ve learned with you.

    Good information as honeysuckle is everywhere in the south. I was taught to use only the fresh white flowers for jams and jellies. Glad to know I can use the older yellow ones for other uses and leaves for skin rashes. Are the leaves also good for bee stings?

    Because of a cooler than normal spring, the honeysuckle is blooming later this year. I tried something new last year, and I may do it again…if time allows. I made honeysuckle jelly. Absolutely everyone who tried it loved it.

  4. Tara, Thanks the timing couldn’t have been better. I noticed yesterday my honeysuckles are starting to bloom. I have done jelly but I am thinking of syrup also now and maybe even some tea.

    And I always liked having my honeysuckles around to attract bees to the garden………

    Not entirely related, but my 2 Persimmon trees have more little fruits on them than ever!
    To raise Persimmon, a 2nd tree is necessary for pollination. This is the first year I have so many little fruits!
    As a matter of fact, the only time they have borne fruit is 2015. They were planted in 2009.
    The Persimmon is more of a southern producer than northern & I figure this is why they have not produced regularly.
    They are a more northern variety, but our Winter’s here (Chicago area) have dragged on quite a bit since they were planted.
    Neither my Peach trees nor my Apricot bush have produced a blossom this year. Prolly due to the colder Spring.
    Hope all are well & prepping ever onward, w/Our Lord’s Blessings!

    Great article! I will be saving it. I found this year that my chickens like honeysuckle.

    I like the ability to take better care of myself an others and the fact that most home remedies are safer than using modern medicines which we may not always understand or have enough information to use as safely and effectively as we’d like. And if the world goes to hell in a handbag we might have to learn to rely on natural medications and good nutrition to live healthy lives.

    It just feels right to utilize natures resources promoting a green lifestyle that supports the natural cycles and processes of the organic world rather than working against it or harming the ecosystem. And the best part of it is that nature’s medicine is always free.
