So, if you want to enjoy the benefits of thieves blend internally, you can make this vinegar and use it in your daily routine over salads, and in a glass of water (you can also ad raw honey to it). This recipe is very easy to make and you might have everything you need on hand right now.
As an added bonus, you can use this thieves vinegar to clean surfaces (mix with water 50/50), as a bug repellent (do the 50/50 mixtures and spray on your skin and clothes before going outside), or as a foot soak to treat foot fungus (add 2 or 3 spoons of the vinegar to 1 cup of warm water and soak your feet into it once a day after showering).
- 1 tbsp organic sage leaf
- 1 tsp organic lavender flowers
- 1 tsp organic rosemary leaf
- ½ tsp organic thyme leaf
- ½ tsp organic peppercorns
- 16oz raw organic apple cider vinegar
Place the herbs in a pint jar and fill to the top with gently warmed apple cider vinegar. You don’t want to boil the vinegar, just heat it on low for a few minutes until it reaches the temperature of warm bath water. This will help get the extraction process going. Close with a plastic lid or place a piece of natural parchment paper under the lid to keep the vinegar from touching the metal. Allow to extract for four weeks. Next, strain the vinegar into a clean glass jar.
