½ cup powdered ginger root
4 teaspoons ground black Indian long peppercorns
2 tablespoons rosemary leaf (feel free to also add in some fennel and/or lavender)
1 tablespoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoons ground basil
¼-½ teaspoon cayenne powder and/or 1 habanero chile
3 teaspoons garlic powder
about 4 cups organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar
¼-½ cup raw honey, or to taste
1 bunch of sage
¼ cup chopped ginseng
4 star anise pods
1 orange peel
Juice from 1 small lemon
2 teaspoons juniper berries
2 cinnamon sticks
optional: a few full droppers of CBD oil and a pinch of pink salt
1. Add the herbs, powders, roots, berries, leaves, peels, juice, sticks, and pods into a glass jar that can hold about 4 cups of liquid.
2. Pour in the apple cider vinegar in the jar until all the ingredients are fully covered and the liquid reaches the top of the jar.
3. Cover with a plastic lid.
4. Shake the jar very well.
5. Place the jar in a cool, dry, dark place and wait 4-6 weeks. Shake the jar every few days.
6. After 4-6 weeks, strain the liquid out into a new jar and then stir in the honey, and CBD oil if you choose.
7. Store sealed in a cool, dry, dark place or in the fridge.
8. Take 1-2 tablespoons daily.
PRO TIP: start a new batch of fire cider after your first one is done so you always have some ready to go!
