Swedish Elixir - Depurative and Vitality 1 liter - Herbalgem
Here is the famous Swedish Elixir in a one-litre bottle, renowned for its digestive, depurative, vitalizing and immune system stimulating properties.
It is the real recipe of Maria Treben, ready to use!
L'Swedish ElixirWhat is it?
The birth of the Elixir of the Swede would go back to the ancient civilizations of Babylon and Egypt, where there was a mysterious (elixir of long life), reserved for the kings and priests of the time.
It was in the 12th century, during the period of the Crusades, that the recipe came to us and circulated under different names among herbalists, alchemists and researchers. The most famous of them were Paracelsus in the sixteenth century, followed by Doctor Samst in the eighteenth century, a Swedish doctor. The latter definitively wrote the composition of what would later be called "the Elixir of the Swede".
Unfortunately, at the end of the XIXth century, modern chemistry, in particular medicines, supplanted the use of medicinal herbs for a time, and the elixir was forgotten.
In the 20th century, an Austrian specialist in traditional herbal medicine, Maria Treben (the famous herbalist), rediscovered the recipe of this elixir as well as its digestive, tonic and depurative virtues.
The elixir of the Swede has been appreciated for the past twenty years
A natural product essentially composed of bitter plants and alcohol, the Swedish elixir has the following properties:
- Detoxify the body and tone it up ( it helps digestion after a rich meal).
- Depurative action: disinfect, detoxify, stimulate circulation.
- Sovereign digestive action against flatulence, stomach heaviness, cramps, nausea, heartburn or constipation.
- Tonic action: the plant extracts contained in the preparation are known to fight and prevent general and intellectual fatigue, and even sexual fatigue!
- Anti-inflammatory and antiseptic, in external use it can also relieve insect bites, irritations, small inflammations, pimples or acne..
It is thus at the same time digestive, tonic and depurative, i.e. that it recapitulates with him only the whole protocol of a cure of detoxication and naturopathic regeneration.
If we study the different actions of the main components of the Swedish elixir The two main types of plants used are :
- Either laxatives (aloe, senna, rhubarb and manna);
- Either hepatic and/or stomachic s, usually lined with tonics (saffron, gentian, angelica, carline, and zedoary).
The few other plants seem to be very judiciously charged with disinfect (myrrh), of detoxify (Venetian theriac), and stimulate blood circulation (camphor)
Drink 15 drops per day outside of meals. Do not use for children under 12 years old, during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
