Root + Hand: Citrus Bitters, 50ml

Root + Hand: Citrus Bitters, 50ml


For digestive support, liver support and supporting better body system functions ::: 
Like our first floral bitters - Chicory Root Bitters Elixir, but with the added zest of two magical citrus this season!
Buddha’s Hand – a beautifully ugly, rare citrus which uniquely grows into a hand formation, used for it’s highly fragrant and delicious zest + Navel oranges from our home tree - much beloved, tended and brought back from the brink of death 6 years ago, since rewarding us with the best oranges in the world!


Root + Hand also has the added floral bitterness of Chamomile (who too often gets forgotten for their digestive support!) distilled from the farm late last Spring, all of which blend so wholesomely with the strong bitterness of long Chicory roots gratefully dug up from deep within damp soil, along with local wildflower honey to create an elixir with an under-appreciated and much-needed taste to fall in love with through such root, fruit and flower magic.


More about Bitters' benefits:

Bitterness as both a taste and herbal action stimulates our digestive systemsparticularly our livers which are responsible for over
500 functions
! And since our digestion is ruled by our Parasympathetic Nervous System, which governs the body’s Rest and Repair functions, through the interconnection of our organ systems this sends a message to the body >>> that you have time to relax, to slow down, to receive nourishment... Some critical messaging for our bodies through busy times, late stage capitalism and beyond. Over time, grounding bitter herbs work tonically on our bodie
because they stimulate our liver which is responsible for so many functions including the processing of hormones, notably those used in times of stress. A well-functioning liver clears these hormones from our bloodstream so that we cease physically responding to stress once the stressor is gone (crucial for PTSD recovery) as well as improving our digestion so that we can better assimilate and absorb the nutrients from our food. Thus bitters can improve the resilience and function of our bodies as a whole, including our nervous systems which all has a marked influence on our overall mental health.


Recommended Use: Take a dropperful directly on tongue 30 mins before or after a meal to support digestion, especially if cramps or bloating occurs. Can also be taken daily as a liver/body tonic for general wellbeing as part of your morning healthcare routine.


Suggested Use: For extra fun over Summer, make a cocktail with your Citrus Bitters! Or add a dropperful to some sparkling water, yum!


Caution if pregnant: Chicory can be supportive in pregnancy, but avoid large doses. Consult a clinical herbalist and if in doubt, wait until postpartum when they will be of immense grounding support.

  • What is Mutual Aid? Who am I "paying forward" to?

    In our attempt to make plant medicines more accessible for all, Seed Medicine Garden sends regular free medicine donations to communities as needs arise. In the past this has included Indigenous activists, youth leaders and trans youth, as well as homeless single mothers, refugees and members of the disabled community. 

    When you "pay forward" 1 or 2 products, you will still receive one (or selected quantity) of your chosen medicine as well as donating the credit for 1 or 2 products to go towards our herbal mutual aid projects.

    There seems to be an increasing call for plant support through these times and we are continually seeking pathways to those who need it most. Please contact us: if you or a community you know is without financial means but needing herbal care.
