  • A glass jar that can be sealed properly


  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup honey high quality
  • whatever herbs, flowers, spices you want to extract


  • Start by warming 1 cup of apple cider vinegar. Do not let it come to a boil, simply warm it up until it's hot.
  • Add 1 cup of high-quality honey to a jar that you can seal properly (preferably one that has a rubber joint under the lid), and add whatever herbs/seasonings you want to extract. For example, garlic, shallots, rosemary, thyme, oregano, peppercorns, bay leaves, sage, chamomile, ginger, turmeric….the list goes on! Every single ingredient has its own medicinal, therapeutic properties so every Oxymel you make will have its own benefits.
  • Finally, add the warm vinegar on top, mix well, and seal the jar. ️
  • Let it sit on your counter for 2 weeks, then place it in the fridge to use whenever. It will stay good for up to a year!
