Dosage and how to use


The loose ready-made mixture of Swedish herbs should be poured with 1.5 liters of 40% alcohol, which helps to extract as much bitter substances from the herbs as possible and extends the shelf life of the tincture obtained. Store the resulting mixture for two weeks in a warm or sunny place and shake the bottle daily. After this time, strain the tincture into a dark bottle.

It should be borne in mind that Swedish herbs, despite their natural composition, can be overdosed, like any other product or preparation, and therefore should be used in accordance with the recommendations. In addition, it is worth remembering that this product is based on alcohol and it is recommended to take systematic breaks in its use.

The most common recommendation is to dilute one tablespoon in 0.5 cups of water. During an infection, the dose can be repeated up to three times. It should be remembered that the doctor determines the appropriate dose of Swedish herbal tincture. Externally, Swedish herbs are used in the form of compresses. A cotton ball or gauze soaked in the tincture should be applied to inflammatory lesions on the body, remembering to lubricate these areas first, e.g. with petroleum jelly, because due to the alcohol content they can irritate the skin and even lead to its discoloration.


Side effects

Despite all its benefits, Swedish herbs can also cause some side effects. While strict adherence to the recommended dosage is unlikely to cause any side effects, general overuse of Swedish herbs, an allergic reaction to certain herbs used in the tincture, or alcohol intolerance are the main causes of problems that can arise with the use of this product.Here are some of the side effects of Swedish herbs:

  • stomach pain;
  • nausea;
  • vomiting;
  • diarrhea;

Reducing the level of potassium in your body can also be a side effect, leading to high blood pressure. However, if Swedish herbs are ingested in small amounts, this side effect can be avoided. Swedish herbs can also cause dehydration, especially in children, uterine bleeding and miscarriage in pregnant women. Not recommended for pregnant women, children under 12 years of age or for ulcers. It is worth mentioning that individual herbs used in Swedish herbs may also have undesirable side effects, e.g.
