Winter Wellness Kit




Fire Cider: A traditional folk remedy of anti-viral and anti-bacterial herbs infused in raw apple cider vinegar with the mother.  Our cider contains hot peppers, onions, garlic, lemons, horseradish, ginger, turmeric, black pepper, rosemary, thyme, and oregano.  Our family likes it in warm lemon water every morning through the winter, and it is also amazing on collard greens.

Elderberry Elixir: Made with elderberry tincture, an even more potent form of elderberry medicine.  Studies have shown elderberries to have significant benefits against cold and influenza symptoms, but starting early after symptom onset is key so have this on hand!  This extra powerful elixir also contains fresh pressed ginger juice.  Ginger juice is another proven anti-viral and is also shown in some studies to reduce pain as well as NSAIDs.  Usnea tincture has been shown in lab studies to kill gram-positive bacteria (think strep and staph) and has traditionally been used for respiratory conditions. It has been added to our formula as a way to prevent secondary infections.  Pine needle decoction and local honey are the final two ingredients.  Pine needle has a long traditional use for colds and flus, and local raw honey is known for its antimicrobial and cough soothing properties.

Mushroom Immunity: A blend of locally grown or wild-harvested mushrooms formulated with the intention to boost immunity, help the body cope with stress, and even fight the growth of cancer cells. A combination of reishi, shiitake, oyster, and turkey tail mushrooms.

Immune Bitters: An immune-enhancing blend of herbs traditionally used to avoid or combat colds, flus, and viruses.  Contains astragalus, reishi, Schisandra, ethically harvested American ginseng, and a touch of ginger.  These adaptogenic and energy enhancing herbs are said to assist in providing stable energy, help the body handle stress, and strengthen immune function and recovery.

Bronchial Bitters: Our bronchial bitters contain violet to soothe irritated mucous membranes, elecampane to assist a cough in being more productive, and thyme and licorice root to alleviate the tickle in the chest associated with coughing.
