I first learned of and began making Fire Cider a decade ago while attending the California School of Herbal Studies, founded by the well-known herbalist Rosemary Gladstar. Let's just say that was the beginning of a grand love affair - I make and drink anywhere from 2-4 gallons throughout the sniffly season and beyond! Throughout the years I have added different herbs, gifted widely to friends and loved ones, and now share a bit with you all as a means of keeping Fire Cider and all traditional herbal recipes from being trademarked and owned... which means lawsuits, legality, and taking away the basic rights of herbalists and medicine makers from selling medicine in their local communities.
Yes friends, February 2nd is now World Fire Cider Day, although most days from September into Spring tend to be Fire Cider Day for those of us who sip on this wonderful immune boosting, antiviral & microbial tonic. If you are already a lover, then please support this day dedicated towards keeping this traditional medicine from being trademarked. If not, then welcome to what is sure to become a staple of your diet and health... named Fire Cider!
There are many variations and recipes towards this Cider of Health. Below is a lovely video of Rosemary sharing her recipe alongside my personal recipe and recommendations.
