Four Thieves Vinegar with Manuka Honey
During the gruesome days of the Black Death in France in 1628 the homes of the dying were being ransacked.
At first the authorities did nothing, assuming that the foolish thieves would die of the plague. However the robberies continued and people began to wonder why the robbers had not become ill and died. It was then that the authorities began to pursue the thieves... to discover the secret of their immunity to the Plague.
Four thieves were eventually caught and were condemned to be burned at the stake for their crimes. However the king of France offered to mitigate their sentence if they would reveal their secret in how they had been avoiding death by the plague.
The thieves told all revealing a secret blend of aromatic herbs steeped in vinegar.
All four thieves were then hung.
Their lasting legacy is this tonic which has powerful anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties and is still used in France today
never get the flu

I have taken 4 thieves vinegar at the end of summer and into winter for some years now and even though I am often on public transport, I never even get a sniffle.
Gut-wrenching - in a good way!

This stuff is fabulous! What a tonic each morning! I felt it's positive effects within a day; and unlike colleagues, survived practically unscathed from a nasty head/chest cold - I'm putting it down to this elixir!
A gem indeed.

Love this concoction. It is not as acidic as regular apple cidar vinegar and is as good as a cleansing and detox drink.

I have been taking my daily 2 tsp for more than 10 years, and in that time, I have not been sick for a day - no flu, no colds and no sniffles.
