Class Description:

Fire Cider is a tonic with deep roots in folk medicine that was brought to popularity by the American herbalist and author, Rosemary Gladstar. Fire Cider uses vinegar as its base, instead of most herbal tinctures, which use alcohol. It really sends home the message, let food be thy medicine. To make fire cider, we add warming, immune and circulatory enhancing, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral foods, and herbs to a vinegar base and with time the medicinal properties are extracted into the vinegar. This spicy yet sweet tonic warms both body and soul.

Fire cider has been consumed traditionally to ward off sore throats, colds, flu, chest congestion, and to promote circulation; which warms us up in the cold months to come. Since it takes about 4-6 weeks for this extraction to happen, this is the perfect time to prepare your herbal medicine for when the cold nights fall upon us!

In this class, you will be learn everything you need to know to make your own fire cider.

You will learn about the medicinal qualities of the plants within the formula, a history of fire cider, basic herbal extraction lesson, the importance of traditional foods and remedies, recipes and ideas how to incorporate this tonic in your home, and directions how to strain your fire cider and sweeten it after its rest.
