Mix herbs and spices together in a pot and combine with 1 quart of water.
Allow to soak for 2 to 3 hours. You may reduce soaking time, if necessary.
Heat at a low simmer until mixture has been reduced to approximately half its original volume (1 pint).
Remove from heat and strain out herbs.
Return strained liquid to pot. Add honey.
Gently heat mixture over low heat, just until honey warms enough so that mixture can be thoroughly stirred together.
Once mixed, remove from heat and allow to cool.
Optional: To help preserve and extend shelf life, measure out a quantity of brandy that is 15 to 20% of the volume of the syrup. Stir into cooled syrup.
Pour into clean bottles and store in refrigerator. Syrup will last for several weeks to several months.
