The Vinegar of the Four Thieves


Prepare this timeless remedy to help keep those pesky bugs, insects, ticks, fleas, flies, mites, and spiders at bay.

This specially-formulated blend of herbs serves as a powerful insect repellent and helps deter fleas, ticks, chiggers, mites, spiders, lice, and other pests. It should be diluted with water to half-strength when sprayed directly onto the skin; and is useful around the house, or as a topical insect repellent during outdoor activities and on pets and farm animals.

Combine 12 tablespoons of the premixed herbs and 2 quarts of vinegar in a sealed glass jar, and steep in a cool, dark place for 2 weeks or so, shaking daily. Then, strain out the used herbs, and retain the herbal liquid mixture.

Add several cloves of crushed garlic (about 2 tablespoons), and close the lid. Let soak for three days, and strain out the garlic fiber and discard.

This liquid tincture needs to be stored in a cool place, like the refrigerator. It can be preserved for a very long period of time by canning. To do so, fill canning jars with boiling liquid tincture to within a one-half inch of top. Cap with rubber seal canning lid, tighten ring, and turn the hot jar upside down; leave it undisturbed until it cools to room temperature. This will cause the jar to seal. Don’t forget to date and label it.
