In 400 B.C.E., in his On Regimen in Acute Diseases, Hippocrates wrote, “You will find the drink, called oxymel, often very useful…for it promotes expectoration and freedom of breathing.”

What is an Oxymel?

The simplest definition of an Oxymel is a powerful medicinal preparation of vinegar and raw honey, infused with a selection of herbs.

The Benefits of Oxymels:

Both apple cider vinegar and honey have been used for centuries as natural healing remedies. The organic apple cider vinegar I use contains the “mother” which has strands of proteins and enzymes and helpful bacteria contained within it. The organic thyme honey has powerful bacteria fighting properties.

These two ingredients alone, when taken on a daily basis, are incredibly beneficial to your body. Unfortunately Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) can be almost impossible to take for some due to the sour taste. So when you add the ACV and honey together, along with the herbal infusion, you get a delicious immune supporting Oxymel.

About my Oxymels:

Part of the magic of this medicine is that all ingredients can be traced back to their place of origin. This elixir is made with a passion for ancient herbal remedies, organic ingredients along with a a slow traditional infusion process.

  • Organic Apple Cider Vinegar: Made with NZ Apples and contains the “mother”.
  • Organic Thyme Honey which has been freshly extracted from my friends hive in Central Otago. Then I have gently warmed it to dissolve the crystals and poured it through a honey sieve to remove any debris (other plant matter, bee body parts (haha), etc). The result is pure, magical, medicinal honey.
  • Organic Herbs: sourced locally and internationally from registered organic farms. Each herb has been carefully selected for its medicinal properties appropriate for the condition it will assist with.

This Elixir is fresh plant medicine and it expected life expectancy is around 6 months. If you keep inside the fridge it will keep for much longer.

Always use a clean spoon each time, never drink from the bottle: this is to avoid introducing other bacteria into the bottle.
