Springtime Medicinal Vinegar

April 12, 2019

Author: Lily Mazzarella MS, CNS

In general, for a medicinal vinegar, you want to have 1 part herb to 5-7 parts vinegar (weight to volume ratio). I suggest only using ACV with live mother for medicinal kinds of vinegar. When you are using the "folk method" of herbal medicine making, we usually dispense with weights and measure and eyeball things.








  • Nettle leaf 2 TBSP
  • Borage leaf + flower 1 TBSP
  • Burdock 1 TBSP
  • Horsetail 1 TBSP
  • Oat Straw 1 TBSP
  • Rosemary 2 tsp

Add all ingredients to a clean jar, and cover with ACV, filling nearly to the top. Place parchment paper over jar before sealing with lid (vinegar can rust and degrade the metal lids). Keep in a cool place and shake once daily for 1-3 weeks. Strain, and take 1 TBSP daily in 6-8 ounces of water, or use as vinegar in salad dressing. This blend can also be diluted and used as a hair rinse!
You can add raw local honey for flavor and allergy support. Often people use 1-2 parts vinegar to 1 part honey.


Prepared eggshell: rinse 3 eggshells and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Crush lightly and add to the vinegar.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.

Sleep Now
Sleep Now is my new favorite cocktail.

Sleep now is a beautiful tincture that helps de-stress my mind and makes my body feel instantly calm. Sometimes other sleep cocktails can knock you out too quickly or give you a groggy feeling in the morning but not Sleep Now. I love the taste of it, maybe because I have always felt connected to lemon balm and motherwort.
Sleep Now is a soft, flowing medicine that works perfectly. My neighbor introduced me to Farmacopia and I just ended up buying a small lazy susan to display all my lovely tinctures. I use different ones throughout the day and I can honestly say they are making a huge difference in my life. My moods are much more stable now. Thank you so much, Farmacopia!!

Aw!!! This review is so sweet and we love your lazy-susan Farmacopia display!

Son loves them

Love these vitamins. My son looks forward to them everyday and usually reminds me if I forget. They seem to work well. He is a very healthy 4 year old.
