Great Herbal Tonic for sore throats and congested chests

Cyclone Cider is a popular herbal tonic known for its immune-boosting properties, often made from a blend of various herbs and apple cider vinegar. While I can’t provide the exact recipe used by the brand, I can guide you through making a similar herbal tonic at home. Here’s a basic recipe to create your own version of an immune-boosting cider, inspired by the concept of Cyclone Cider:

Homemade Herbal Immune-Boosting Cider

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup of raw honey (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly grated turmeric (or 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced (optional, but recommended for its immune properties)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 1 lemon (juice extracted)
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme or rosemary (optional, for additional flavor and benefits)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare Ingredients: Grate the ginger and turmeric. Mince the garlic. Juice the lemon. If you’re using fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary, chop them finely.
  2. Combine with Vinegar: In a glass jar, combine the apple cider vinegar, grated ginger, grated turmeric, minced garlic, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and the optional herbs.
  3. Add Honey: Stir in the raw honey. Adjust the amount of honey based on your preference for sweetness and to balance the acidity of the vinegar.
  4. Let It Infuse: Seal the jar tightly and shake well to mix all the ingredients. Store the mixture in a cool, dark place for about 1-2 weeks. Shake the jar once daily to help the flavors meld.
  5. Strain and Store: After the infusion period, strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to remove the solids. Store the strained tonic in a clean glass bottle or jar in the refrigerator.
  6. Usage: Take 1-2 tablespoons of the tonic daily, either directly by mouth or diluted in a glass of water or tea. Adjust the dosage based on personal tolerance and preference.

Notes:

  • This tonic is potent and has a strong flavor due to the apple cider vinegar and spices. Start with a smaller amount to see how you tolerate it.
  • The inclusion of garlic and cayenne pepper adds to the immune-boosting and warming properties of the tonic, but they can be adjusted or omitted based on personal preference and tolerance.
  • Always consult with a healthcare provider before adding any new herbal supplements to your routine, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are pregnant/nursing.

This recipe is flexible and can be adjusted based on your personal taste preferences and the availability of ingredients. Enjoy creating your homemade version of an immune-boosting cider!
