How to Make the Master Tonic
Make up plenty as the Master Tonic does not need refrigeration and lasts indefinitely without any special storage conditions.
The healthiest Master Tonic is made with homemade apple cider vinegar brewed with raw honey. If you don’t have time to do this, then be sure to buy only raw ACV packed in glass bottles. Never buy it packaged in plastic, as the acidity of the ACV will leech toxins into the vinegar.
Master Tonic Recipe
The Master Tonic is a must have remedy for flu season or when traveling overseas.
- 1 part fresh chopped garlic preferably organic
- 1 part fresh chopped onion preferably organic
- 1 part fresh grated ginger root preferably organic
- 1 part fresh grated horseradish root preferably organic
- 1 part fresh chopped cayenne peppers or any hot peppers seasonally available preferably organic
- raw apple cider vinegar
Fill a glass mason jar 3/4 of the way full with equal parts by volume of the above fresh chopped and grated herbs. Wear gloves when chopping the hot peppers.
Fill jar to the top with raw ACV. Close the lid tightly and shake.
Shake at least once a day for two weeks, and then filter the Master Tonic mixture through a clean piece of cloth, bottle and label.
Make sure that when you make this tonic that you shake it every time you walk by it, a minimum of once per day. Remember that all the herbs and vegetables for the Master Tonic should be fresh and organically grown if possible. Use dried herbs only in an emergency.
Use only fresh and preferably organically grown herbs if possible as this will make the most potent and effective Master Tonic. Substitute dried bulk herbs only in an emergency if fresh is unavailable.
If one of the ingredients is not available (fresh horseradish is difficult during certain times of the year), then substitute another hot pepper such as habanero.
Fire Cider vs Master Tonic
Fire cider is a very similar immunity boosting tonic to the Master Tonic. The primary difference is that fire cider contains honey to mitigate the strong taste.
Fire cider is available for purchase from a number of companies in recent years. This brand is one of the best if you prefer not to make your own full strength Master Tonic at home.
