Swedish bitters…So what is the big deal?

Just recently, I have had the need to use Swedish Bitters for various minor ailments: –

  • Irritable bowel caused by stress…Swedish bitters (25 drops in a quarter glass of water-3 times a day).
  • Mouth ulcer-probably also stress related…Swedish Bitters (applied topically 3 times a day. Within 3 days it was almost gone and 7 days later, not a sign of the ulcer.)

I have also heard that applied topically it can relieve inflammation (Haemorrhoids, acne, leg ulcers etc). I have an inflamed baby toe…I wonder if it can help that?

Here is some more interesting information about Swedish Bitters: A tincture that Essential Herbal Products highly recommends.

  • Take this bitter tonic to stimulate digestion, appetite, bile flow – and maintain healthy digestive function.
  • Aloe, senna and rhubarb in this product helps maintain regularity with their scientifically-proven laxative action.
  • Oral use: take 10 to 20 ml of Swedish Bitters in 100 ml of water/juice/herb tea 30 minutes before meals to relieve indigestion symptoms such as heartburn, abdominal discomfort and flatulence (ideal after a rich heavy meal).
  • Contains black cohosh, clinically-proven to relieve premenstrual discomfort and menopausal symptoms such as night sweats and mood swings (take 21 ml twice daily in 100 ml water/juice/herb tea) .
  • External use: soak a piece of gauze in undiluted Swedish Bitters for the healing/repair of skin and to relieve insect bites, swellings and inflamed joints (apply for 2-4 hours and cover with bandage).
  • Apply to forehead or back of head/neck for 15 minutes for the temporary relief of headaches.
  • Gargle: for the relief of a sore throat or toothache (add 60 ml Swedish Bitters to 250 ml of lukewarm water)
