Home Made Fever Tree Syrup

Grape Fruit

I have the impression that a homemade tonic can help prevent the Covid infection, so I would like to share how I make it. I looked for a recipe on YouTube, and I follow what I learnt only without adding gin. The reason for making it is that the Cinchona bark contains quinine, which is an old cure for fevers and malaria. When vaccinations are promoted as more important than your natural immune defence, I prefer to access something from our nature.

  • Four cups of water
  • 6 seeds of cardamom
  • 2 seeds of anis
  • 6 pods of all spice
  • 1/4 of a cup of fever tree/bark cinchona
  • 1/4 of a cup of citrus acid
  • peel from a grape fruit a lemon and a lime fruit. All organic

You shake the cinchona bark for dust before adding it to the water. Everything boils and then simmer for thirty minutes under the lid.

You strain it and add one cup of sugar or more water. When cooled down, you keep it in a clean bottle in the refrigerator.

Mix it with mineral water when you want to drink it a few times a day.   

Abigail Adams, Born November 11, 1744 (Weymouth, Massachusetts), Died October 28, 1818 (Quincy, Massachusetts). In one of the thousands of letters to her husband, the second American President John Adams  (October 30, 1735 – July 4, 1826), wrote that one of their children had been cured of a serious fever attack by “the tree”. Unfortunately, I can’t find the letter but read it recently.
