Healing thieves blend immunity boosting fire cider

Sharing is caring!

Healing thieves blend immunity boosting fire cider is a warming, immunity-boosting adaptation of the original fire cider using thieves herbs. Fire cider was originally created by my idol Rosemary Gladstar. Rosemary was the herbalist who started the trend. Drink it every morning on an empty stomach to reap the benefits. Have you heard the legend of thieves? 

The legend of thieves

In France during the 15th century, thieves would sneak into graveyards to rob from the dead and dying. Legend says they protected themselves by creating a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals.  Source. Combining apple cider vinegar with clove, cinnamon, rosemary, cayenne pepper, peppercorn, ginger, garlic, onion and lemon and raw local honey - it is an amazing warming, healing, and immune-supporting elixir. 

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. Once they're done infusing, they 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.

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 rose fire cider was created to attract beauty, abundance, and love as that is what roses represent.
