My Oxymel recipe, half local organic honey, half raw ACV, leave for at least 2 weeks, turning over each day, the thickness of the honey disperses into the vinegar until it is fluid. I add rosehips for vitamin C, you could use Hibiscus, Hawthorn, thyme, oregano, etc.
Dose is one tablespoon, for colds etc. I plan to take every 4 hours but recovery is usually quick and we don't get past two doses. It is delicious, neat or added to herb tea. So kids don't mind it. You can strain out the rosehips, I choose not to, when one gets uncovered I simply add to tea.
The recipe that I like using ACV is 2 TBSP ACV, 1 TBSP organic lemon juice. 1 TBSP raw unfiltered honey, 1/4 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon and a pinch of baking soda in 1 cup filtered water. Put in a blender give it a whirl to blend all ingredients and pour it on ice. ENJOY!
I have been drinking ACV for about 5 months now and will never go without it again. It has done so much for my energy levels, I can't even believe it!
I cannot stand the flavour, however, so every morning I make my "Health Drink" - which is 1 tbsp ACV; 1 tbsp organic coconut oil; 1 tbsp manuka honey; 1 tsp turmeric; and 4 drops oil of wild oregano". I live in a northern climate, so I have to very extremely gently melt the coconut oil, turmeric and manuka honey in a pot on the stove (no microwaving) and then add the ACV and oil of wild oregano. To this I add my fave fruit juice (currently it is pear/pineapple) and drink it like really fast like a shooter! . This is the only way I can get it down and it really works for me, I don't taste any of it but the fruit juice.
I have not had colds, flus or even a simple runny nose since. My allergies are pretty much in check, flatulence and digestive upset are a thing of the past and I never even get headaches anymore.
