We've used Swedish Bitter for a number of personal complaints including; toothaches, food poisoning, cuts, burns, allergic reactions, muscle aches, cramps, headaches, digestion, pimples, scars, and rashes.
Dilution of bitter can be performed with hot or cold tea, juice, and water to avoid irritation of the stomach. We recommend one tablespoon per cup of herbal tea or warm water.
