NWN Plant Medicines - The Shrubs and Syrups



Shrubs are traditional vinegar-based cordials used to replenish the body. They contain fruit or herbs, a sweetener and vinegar. In the Middle East shrubs have been used to re-hydrate the body during the hot months. They are also probiotic which supports your digestion. Most importantly though, they taste wonderful!


My syrups are thick, sweet and infused with herbs. They can be added to drinks to increase your daily intake of vitamins, minerals and herbs.
