Throughout history, vinegar was used to preserve food. Until man learned how to distill alcohol, wortcunners (women and wizards who knew the virtues of plants) use wine and vinegar has solvent in preparing herbal remedies. Herbal vinegar (also known as "Aceta" ) are weaker than alcohol-based tinctures, so the required dose is higher. While vinegar won’t draw out as many of the beneficial components of an herb that alcohol will, it does excel at drawing minerals and vitamins from a plant. This makes them a powerful way of taking nutritive herbs. Because it is alcohol-free, herbal vinegar is kid friendly and great for people who don’t like or can’t have alcohol. One of my favorite things about herbal vinegar is how versatile they are. They can be taken in therapeutic doses by the spoon or a dropper-full or you can add them to your favorite recipes in place of regular vinegar*.
We use organic raw apple cider vinegar in our vinegar. Organic raw apple vinegar is known to offers health benefits in addition to its extraction abilities. Studies show that vinegar can be helpful for diabetes, high cholesterol, digestion, skin health, hair care, fatigue, inflammation, detoxification, and weight control*.
We hand pick the herbs from our garden and after drying them infuse them in local organic apple cider vinegar from Dwight Miller Orchard in East Dummerston Vermont.
