Summer Cooler Oxymel

Regular price $10.00
What's an oxymel, you ask? It's the original energy drink! Used by the Romans as they traveled by foot throughout Europe, it is a healthy combination of (organic, unfiltered, unpasteurized) apple cider vinegar and (raw, local, organic) honey. We infuse our oxymels with herbs for medicinal and nutritive value.

This Summer Cooler Oxymel is our seasonal summer tonic for 2017. It is infused with optimum cooling herbs that offer wonderful nutrition like Dandelion Greens, Chickweed, and Purslane. 

How do you use an oxymel? We're so glad you asked! They are so flexible- take a shot in the morning, add to shrubs (vinegar based sodas), smoothies, or cocktails, or use as the base of a salad dressing. Oxymels are delicious AND nutritious! (We like to think of you enjoying a cooling cocktail on your porch.)

Our Summer Cooler Oxymel comes in a 4 ounce bottle.

Ingredients: Apple Cider Vinegar*, Raw Local Honey*, Chickweed*, Purslane*, Dandelion* (*organic)

General Contraindications & Warnings:
Like all herbal medicine, our products work best when combined with a lifestyle that includes clean water, whole foods, gentle exercise, and plenty of self-love.

You could be allergic to a plant, a plant family, honey, or another ingredient in a formula just like you could be allergic to a food. Use standard commonsense precautions when trying new things. If any adverse reactions happen that coincide with the taking of this product, discontinue use and consult your herbalist, naturopath, or doctor.

Standard required disclaimer for the USA:
The statements made here have not been approved by the FDA. These statements are not intended to diagnose, prevent, treat, or cure any disease or replace advice from a health practitioner.

This notice is required by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for herbalists and people like me but not big pharma, who is in bed with the FDA. After umpteen million product recalls, birth defects and deaths, big pharma still doesn't have to label like this- even though the ingredients in this product has been used safely for much longer than any pharmaceutical preparation has. Just sayin'.

Standard required disclaimer for Canada:
If condition worsens or persists, consult a health practitioner.

How to Take Herbal Supplements

Herbal remedies, supplements, and tonics are fundamentally different from pharmaceuticals (and we like it that way). They are designed to restore your body and its systems to homestasis gently- working with your body. 

We print basic dosage guidelines on each package, but keep in mind if you have more body mass or a faster metabolism than the average bear, you may need to take a larger dose than indicated. If there are hard-and-fast limitations on how often you can take the product, it will be listed on the package. Most can be used up to six times daily without problems (but we doubt that you would need to do that).

Remember, there are no "magic bullets" in life, and any product (herbal, pharmaceutical, or otherwise) claiming 100% success without knowing you, your constitution, and your lifestyle is lying and trying to get into your wallet. Often, herbalists (and MDs) need to try several products before we find the one that works for your unique biochemistry. 

Feel free to email us if the product didn't quite do the job, we can recommend another that could do the trick. We are blessed with many plants that have the same action in the body- and often it's just a matter of finding the right one for you.
