Herb-Infused Vinegar for Strong Immune System
Contents: Vinegar, rosemary, lavender, sage, mint, horehound, thyme, oregano, lemon hyssop, cinnamon, and clove. All the herbs except the latter two are grown in my organic garden. The herbs soak in vinegar for months, during which time I apply Reiki and sunlight, then they are strained out.
Ways to Use: use in vinegar and oil salad dressing, put a teaspoon in water and drink in the morning and two more times a day, apply to feet bottoms or wrists, spray diluted half and half with water in mouth or on feet, put in bath water. Spray on animal fur to discourage fleas. Insect repellent, antiseptic, antimicrobial, antibiotic, antifungal, can be sprayed on cutting boards and doorknobs.
History: The story is during the plague in Europe (various stories place it from the 1300s to the 1700s) a group of thieves robbed the homes of the plague victims without getting sick. One the thieves had an herbalist mother (another version is they came from a family of perfumers) who made the herbal vinegar they used on a handkerchief over their mouths and noses. Different stories mention different herbs but they’re anti-viral or anti-bacterial, and usually include thyme, rosemary, sage, and lavender. Thus the formula is called the Four Thieves Vinegar.
