Anti- Epidemic Vinegar from the leaflady
This is the historic recipe known as "Thieves' Vinegar" used during the time of Black Plague.
You will need:
1 quart of organic raw apple cider vinegar
1 pound garlic cloves
8 oz. comfrey root
4 oz. each of oak bark, marshmallow root, mullein flowers, rosemary flowers, lavender flowers, wormwood, black walnut leaves
12 oz. vegetable glycerin
Make a tea from each herb by soaking in clean spring or distilled water for 12 hours, then boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Let steep for 30 minutes. Then strain each herb and simmer again reducing the amount to one-half to concentrate the tea. Juice or squeeze the garlic, and add to the mixture of teas and vinegar. Stir in the glycerin thoroughly.
Store best in an amber glass bottle.
Take 1 -3 teaspoons during an epidemic, or 1 teaspoon hourly if someone has a serious communicable dis-ease.
