(video) How To Make Four Thieves Tonic★ 4.64 out of 5 [11 Votes]
I make this “Four Thieves Tonic” each year just as the holiday season gets going. It needs about a month to set, and is ready by January when my immune systems could use a good nudge.
Even though I don’t really like spicy stuff that much, I really do like this one.
There are numerous versions of the onic on the web. Some are made to be used only externally – on the skin to ward against bacteria. And some are made out of essential oils. Since making essential oils is a trail I am not wanting to go on right now, I prefer this recipe which is ingested.
Here are the ingredients I used, and a list of other possible ones yo might want to add. Of course, be careful if you have nay kind of allergies to any of these…
And here is a ‘possibles’ list – please add your own ingredients in the comments section if you’ve made this before! I’ll come back and add your ingredients into the post.
