Quick Facts

Servings: 8
This homemade version of expensive tincture formulas sold in natural food stores has quite a kick! It stimulates circulation and really stands up to an assault on the immune system.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 cloves garlic (optional)
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded ginger
  • 2 tsp wasabi powder, or to taste
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 2-4 Tbs raw honey

Directions

  • In a blender, combine the vinegar, garlic (if desired), and ginger and blend until smooth. Pour through a fine strainer and press with the back of a spoon to extract as much juice as possible. Discard pulp.
  • Whisk in the wasabi, cayenne, and honey.
  • Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator. Serve 2 tablespoons at a time on an empty stomach. Add to 1 cup hot water for a warming tonic.
