How to Make your own Immune Boosting Tonic

Jenna shows you how to throw together your own Immune Boosting Tonic full of virus-busting goodness!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 medium onion, peeled and rough chopped
  • 1 head of garlic, peeled and rough chopped
  • 3 inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon dried echinacea root
  • Apple cider vinegar (organic with “the mother”)
  • Raw organic honey
  • 2 teaspoons ground cayenne pepper
  • cheese cloth (enough to cover the top of the jar with a couple layers)
  • A large glass container of some sort. We used a quart-sized mason jar.

 

Step by Step Instructions

     

  1. Place onion, garlic, ginger and echinacea root in a mason jar.
  2. Add apple cider vinegar to cover the herbs.
  3. Cover with cheese cloth and screw on the band to hold it tight. (don’t use the lid portion- your tonic needs air!)
  4. Leave in the jar for 2-3 weeks, preferably in a sunny or slightly warm place.
  5. Strain and discard the herbs.
  6. Mix with equal parts raw honey and add cayenne powder.
  7. Store in the fridge and take 1 teaspoon as needed daily or whenever you start to feel run down.

 
There is more you can do with this tonic: 

• Immune Boosting Tonic is amazing alone- BUT there are some fun ways to use it:

• Use it to make a quick Bloody Mary: add to a mixture of tomato juice spirit of you choice

• It’s a super FLAVOR boost for soups and sauces. It’s the not-so-secret ingredient in my chicken soup and a fix-it for spaghetti sauce that needs a little kick.

• Bone Broth to the MAX: add this to your bone broth!
