Hilde Hemmes Herbal's Swedish Bitters 120 Capsules
The Hilde Hemmes Swedish Bitters formula has existed in many different forms and with different names for hundreds of years. It's recipe disappeared after the death of the great medical reformer Paracelsus (1493-1542) and stayed lost for several hundred years.
