Rose and honey fire cider is a herbalist’s tonic for attracting abundance, prosperity, love and beauty into your life.
Fire cider was originally created by my idol Rosemary Gladstar, the herbalist who started the trend. Rose, bee pollen and pine honey fire cider is my delicious adaptation of the original recipe.
What is fire cider?
Fire cider was originally created in 1970’s as Rosemary’s attempt to popularize vinegar-based tonics. Traditionally, ingredients infuse in apple cider vinegar for four – six weeks, and then get a generous dose of raw honey. The final product is spicy, sweet, and completely delicious. It’s easy to make and can be adapted based on what’s seasonal and available to you. Fire cider is traditionally used in the winter due to it’s warming properties, however, I make a batch and drink it year round and drink it on an empty stomach in the morning.
The og cider
The original recipe, found in Rosemary Gladstar’s original book “Herbal Healing for Women.” ( a must read ) the recipe calls for, horseradish, ginger, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, apple cider vinegar and honey. Rosemary sold her tonic and taught it to her herbalist students, who adapted it to include more spices and herbs. I personally can never find fresh horseradish in my region, so it is never added in my fire cider blends.
Ingredients are often adapted based on the medicinal intent of the cider. My thieves fire cider was created with additional immunity support in mind. And this rose fire cider was created to attract beauty, abundance and love as that is what roses represent.
