Since the Full Moon, the trees have been swaying in the rain with ferocity, fueled by the cold relentless winds. The season to call upon this incredibly potent & delicious brew is upon us!
THE LORE & THE BREW 🦌✨
The Wild Hunt was considered the time spirits, the Ancestors & those of the Underworld would manifest in this realm as the Great December Winds, fueled by Odin riding through the Nine Worlds. This brew was crafted in honor of Father Wind, the Gods & spirits of Midtvinter. Powerful, nourishing herbs, spices & mentruums considered sacred to Ancient Northern Europe during Jul, join forces to keep us safe as we venture into these dark days ~ a time Ancestors believed very dangerous.
This Oxymel is full of anti-inflammatory & anti-viral properties, helping the lungs combat & keep ails at bay while bringing warmth & energy to your blood. Wildcrafted Blue & Black Elderberry along with Red Belted Polypore Mushroom harvested in Autumn & dual-extracted, join Blue Spruce Tips I harvested in Spring. All incredibly nourishing PNW allies that help strengthen & support the immune, respiratory, digestive & cardiovascular systems.
Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is amazing at extracting the plethora of minerals & vitamins in these allies, further enhanced when combined with raw mountain honey. Deeply protective & delicious seasonal spices of infused Ceylon Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Star Anise, Cardamom pods, Cloves & Smoked Black Peppercorn complete this magical brew.
She holds the wild scent of dark berries & Jul spices with deep hues of blackened blood, representing life & death, bloodline & sacrifice of animals during Midvinter which secured survival. Did I mention how absolutely delicious this offering is?? With sweet, spicy & tangy flavors, this brew makes a lovely supportive addition to any Jul beverage, but is super yummy taken straight!
🌲 Blue Spruce Tips ~ Harvested from the big beautiful Blue Spruces around my home on May’s Full Moon. Crafted into a Spirited Oxymel that brewed for months, until ready to take part in this offering. Spruce tips are incredibly high in Vitamin C, carotenoids & various minerals that vinegar is incredible at extracting.
🌲 Blue Elderberry ~ Ancient folklore believe Elder to be connected to the divine; the gateway to the underworld. Blue Elderberry is native to the PNW, with sweet delicious berries, believed to have an affinity with the lungs, helping fight off respiratory illness & virals. I made a yummy Elderberry syrup with local wildcrafted berries & seasonal spices of Ceylon Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Star Anise, Cardomom pods, Cloves, Black Peppercorn & local raw PNW honey.
🌲 Red Belted Polypore Mushroom ~ This October I harvested & double decocted our beautifully abundant. This incredible Mushroom of the PNW is full of anti-inflammatory, immuno-modulating & anti-viral properties, helping to support the immune system and keep ails at bay. It possessed rich, dark Earthly flavors with so much magical & medicinal significance in Indigenous & European folklore.
🌲 Seasonal Spices ~ Ceylon Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Star Anise, Cardamom pods, Cloves & Smoked Black Peppercorn complete this magical brew. They are warming carminatives as well as immune, digestive & respiratory systems supporters. They bring a warming spice & beautiful flavors to this brew as well as a plethora of medicinal benefits!
May this offering keep us safe through the dark days by helping us summon the strength & power conjured by The Wild Hunt.

This was my first time purchasing Blood of The Wild Hunt and it has not disappointed. Not only is it nourishing and brings you back to the connection of land and spirit but it’s also quite healing. The first day I tried this offering I had what felt to be a sinus infection coming on and I am prone to getting them during this time of year. After taking Blood of The Wild Hunt for three days my symptoms were gone. Aside from this working like a charm physically, spiritually it is a connection to the spirits that roam during the cold winter months. I usually just take this straight from the dropper, it is beyond delicious! Such a beautiful and lovely offering!
This oxymel has been amazing for me. I have used this since she first released it, and it will forever be my favorite offering of Brittany’s. It has gotten me through bouts of c*v!d and sinus infections when I have gotten them; but I attribute it to helping keep my immunity strong when I’ve been around so many sick people and came out healthy. Amazing in teas, but taking it straight up followed by one of the medicinal honeys is great. Also love using it in ritual.
This concoction has a delicious sweet-and-sour taste. It has really helped me through the brutal back-to-back colds I’ve gotten this holiday season, and helped keep my chronic sinus issues at bay.
