Hippocras that should keep me drunk for a while ;-)
I have a new run of Hippocras/Theriak ready, brewed from:
-wild strawberry leaves
-bramble berries and leaves
-St. John´s wort
It is made after a 17th century Theriak recipe with inspiration by Konrad of Megenberg and Hildegard of Bingen. It has a very invigorating effect;-) and can be used as a medicinal against cough, flu, bad stomach, female complaints, as a digestive, stomach cramps, digestive problems and a mild antidepressive (provided you use it sensibly). Of course: Please remember to judge for yourself when to visit a doctor and when not to! I will not be made responsible for any adverse effects...
Always be cautious when using herbal concoctions, of course and blah, and blah, and blah...;-).
As a medicinal concoction, drink three mugs a day. You can also drink it warm, prepared just about the same as mulled wine.
