How to Make Fire Cider Vinegar

I make this fire cider vinegar (also known simply as “fire cider” or, in some circles, “four thieves tonic”) each year just as the holiday season gets going. Since it needs about a month to set, it is ready by winter when my immune system could use a good nudge.

Even though I don’t really like spicy stuff that much, I really do like the kick of this traditional fire cider recipe.


You’ll find numerous versions of fire cider circulating out there. Some exist to be used only externally. For example, you apply some to the skin to ward off bacteria.

Others are made out of essential oils. Since making essential oils is a trail I don’t want to travel right now, I prefer this recipe, which is ingested.
