What is an oxymel?
An oxymel is a traditional elixir of vinegar (typically apple cider vinegar) and raw honey, often with complementary herbs. Indeed, the term comes from the ancient Greek word oxymeli, which translates to “acid and honey.” Unsurprisingly then, oxymels have been around—and literally on the books—for centuries, documented since the age of Hippocrates and showing up as important folk remedies for a wide array of issues in both European and American pharmacopoeias.
