Herbalism

Our line of medicinal products is still in development. If you are interested in any of the products below, please contact us at southhillforestproducts@gmail.com and we will let you know whether it’s available for purchase, or how long until it will be.

At South Hill Forest Products, we harness the power of plants to create a variety of herbally-enhanced products that taste great and are good for you! To learn more about medicinal plants, check out an interview from Professor Jason Hamilton, chair of the Environmental Studies and Sciences Department and expert on medicinal plants.

All of our herbs are harvested from the Ithaca College Permaculture Garden, a student-run garden in the heart of campus that showcases a beautiful, productive, ecologically-designed landscape.

Infused Maple Syrup

IMG_6386

Flavoring maple syrup with herbs has been done by many, but not with such unique flavor combinations! After much experimentation and many taste tests, we have perfected our maple syrup infusions of:

Lemon Balm and Lemon Verbena

Rosemary and Sage

Cayenne Pepper

Infused Honey

We are currently experimenting with honey infused with the same herbs as our maple syrup line, but including lavender and spearmint too, and our hope is that these herbs will go well with our honey’s special flavors throughout the season.

South Hill Salve

Developed in Professor Jason Hamilton’s medicinal plants lab, South Hill Salve is a magical concoction based in our own beeswax from the Ithaca College apiary, and with medicinals such as calendula officinalis.

Tinctures

Tinctures are herb infusions in concentrate, and are added in drops to drinks at a certain dosage (depending on the herb and your body’s needs). Our tinctures are still in development, but we hope to produce a few next fall!
