I want to go lay in the river like this.
 
"I saw the Colorado River for the very first time this week. So did this boy, who grew up in San Luis Rio Colorado – a city named after the river – but he has only ever known hot, dry sand to be where today there is cool, clear water."

This week we will be talking with Heather Bruntil of Tradition Not Trademark & FreeFireCider.com as well as other herbalists about the recent trademarking of this traditional herbal remedy.

"Recently trademarked by a single company, Fire Cider is not a product name to be owned. Fire Cider is a beloved herbal tradition shared for the benefit of all. 

Fire Cider is a blend of herbs mixed with apple cider vinegar and honey used for its health-enhancing properties. This formula and name was coined by herbalist Rosemary Gladstar in the 1970s. It has been reproduced, adapted, used and sold by thousands of herbalists over the past forty years."

"Herbal formulas have always been widely available to everyone. Fire Cider may just be the beginning. Trademarking herbal remedies for profit may ultimately change the herbal market into a place where the accessibility, wisdom and effectiveness of herbs is owned by the few and no longer available to the public.

This anti-trademark movement is working towards keeping “Fire Cider” and other traditional herbal terms in public domain. The goal is to keep herbal medicine accessible to all."
