Fire Cider is a long and beloved herbalist tradition that is added to the winter health curriculum at many herbal schools. The combination of flavors creates a aceta (vinegar tincture) that is hot, sour, pungent, and sweet. It is best known for use during cold and flu season, but Fire Cider has many other benefits.  Apple-cider vinegar is a great digestive aid. Ginger is a warming circulatory herb that's wonderful for digestion relieves cold symptoms, helps fight infection and is good for nausea. Astragalus Root is one of our favorite herbs for strengthening the immune system. Garlic is known throughout the herbal community as the poor man's penicillin. It has broad-spectrum antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and is an excellent aid for fighting infection. It also produces a heat that helps lower cholesterol. Onion has similar properties to garlic and is also good for colds and flus. Turmeric is highly anti-inflammatory, which is a help anytime, but especially when fighting cold or flu symptoms. Hot chili pepper is one of the best cardiovascular herbs. It helps your immune system mobilize and moves blood through the system. Honey is very soothing for inflamed tissues and organs, but its primary purpose is to help blend all the flavors in fire cider and to help make it palatable not just to your taste buds, but to your whole digestive system.   

Key Benefits:      Digest     |    Relieve     |    Wellness

2 Cup is enough to make 16 pint jars. (16 x 16 oz)


  1. Add 1/8 C. (1/4 C for stronger cider) of Fire Cider Blend to a quart jar.
  2. Optional: Add a tsp. of horseradish for combating sinus congestion and sinus headaches. We leave this out since horseradish has a strong flavor that is not for everyone.

  4. Cover the jar with a piece of parchment paper if using a metal lid to prevent corrosion. Screw lid on tight and shake well.
