A Delicious Remedy for Cold and Flu

A Delicious Remedy for Cold and Flu

I have a special treat for you today — a recipe for an herbal remedy that combines gut-supporting apple cider vinegar with powerful herbs to give you a big immunity boost… I’m talking about Fire Cider!

Apple cider vinegar is a jack-of-all-trades that brings your body back into homeostasis by introducing healthy bacteria to your microbiome — which largely controls the health of your immune system. 

When you add more healing herbs to the mix – like garlic, ginger, turmeric, horseradish, cayenne, and other goodies, you get a strong (and delicious) wellness shot that prevents illness and shortens your recovery time if you’re already feeling sick.

My dear friend and world-renowned herbalist Rosemary Gladstar created Fire Cider in the early 1980s and then taught it to apprentices and students. Fire Cider eventually became popular across the country and is now a staple in herbalists’ pantries world-wide. 

To honor this remedy, the amazing Tara Lanich-LaBrie created the beautiful DIY Fire Cider video below.

*Further down, you’ll also find a list of ingredients and how to whip up this spicy elixir!

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup horseradish, minced 
  • ¼ cup onion, chopped
  • ⅛ – ¼ cup garlic, minced
  • ⅛ cup fresh grated turmeric
  • ⅛ cup grated ginger
  • ¼ cup calendula
  • ¼ – ½ cup honey
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • A couple sprigs of rosemary
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Cayenne to taste
  • 1-quart glass jar

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Chop up all ingredients (the smaller the better, so the vinegar can more easily extract all of the healing properties) and place in a glass jar
  2. Cover vegetables/herbs with apple cider vinegar
  3. Cover the jar opening with wax paper, then screw on the top
  4. Shake it up!
  5. Place in a cool, dark place for at least 4 weeks
  6. Strain out the dregs, so that your just left with the liquid
  7. Mix together, re-fasten the lid and store in your refrigerator

We do 1 TSP per day to prevent illness or 1 TBSP per day if we’re feeling symptoms of the cold/flu.
