Flora Maria's Swedish Bitters (alcohol)
Maria's Swedish Bitters provides many of the traditional herbs that were so important in generations past. Austrian herbalist Maria Treben provided the basis for this formula in the 1940s when she was given an old recipe for bitters while she was ill at a refugee camp. Regaining her health, she revived the centuries-old formula and devoted her life to promoting this stimulating bitter tonic.
Once an integral part of European folk medicine, the original bitters recipe dates back to the 16th century, when it was created by the famous Swiss physician Paracelsus. It wasn't until 1850, when Dr. Claus Samst of Sweden refined, researched and confirmed its benefits that it was given the name "Swedish Bitters." Dr. Samst was a zealous believer in the potion and consumed it himself for much of his long life. He died at the age of 104 – in a horse riding accident! The amazing story of this formula is told in Maria Treben's best-selling book, Health Through God's Pharmacy.
