Swedish Bitters contain mostly herbal ingredients, but also minerals such as red clay and silica. Most ingredients are traditional herbs such as angelica root, eberwurzel or zedoary. rhubarb root and senna root are traditional components of Swedish Bitters, which is, however, often because of their strong laxative effect. According to traditional use many complaints can be relieved by applying a compress of Swedish Bitters both directly on the skin and the muscle.

For example the small Swedish bitter you generally find in stores are with 11 herbs and sometimes in other carrier solutions than alcohol.
