Marseilles Vinegar Recipe

Marseilles Vinegar Recipe

Marseilles Vinegar has been around for hundreds of years, here is my recipe. This vinegar is a great cleaner for the whole house. I have been making it for over 20 years. It has a few a major benefits that I like. It is easy to make, It is cheap to make and all natural. This is safe for use around children and pets, and dilute as you would as needed.

Marseilles Vinegar
1 quart jar- I prefer wide mouth jars, they are easier to fill.
Fill with equal portions of the following herbs roughly chopped.
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
Sage (Salvia officinalis)
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
Organic Cider Vinegar
I personally like using a little more Rosemary in my Marseilles Vinegar, because I love the smell and benefits of the herb, but some people may prefer the a little extra Lavender. Really pack it in the jar, but make sure it still has enough room for the vinegar. A good pack, but not a tight pack.

After you have filled the jar with the herb, then fill the jar with the vinegar. 1-2 times a day give the jar a slight shake. Allow the vinegar to steep in a cupboard, or darker cabinet.
Allow the vinegar to steep for about 4-6 weeks. I like it to steep for 6 weeks, but you can use it sooner.
Variations you can try:
You can add a few cloves (Syzygium aromaticum), meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) or wormwood (Artemisia vulgaris), or you can add the peel of an orange or a lemon.
I like to use this to clean everything, and I mean everything. Toilets, sinks, door knobs, glass, etc.. It smells lovely too.
