  • Swedish Bitters is an old European herbal formula made popular through the well-known Austrian herbalist Maria Treben in her book "Health through God's Pharmacy".

  • It is well proven over the years to be an outstanding liver and gallbladder tonic. It is capable of supporting a huge range of body systems.

  • It assists healthy immune and digestive systems. It supports healthy kidney and hormonal function.

  • It can be used as a mouthwash.

  • For people familiar with iridology: Swedish Bitters tends to suit people with blue or dark brown eyes. (Self Heal's NZ Bush Bitters tends to suit people with green, hazel or yellow-brown eyes.)

  • We have found that many people receive benefit with much lower doses than prescribed by Maria Treben. Best dose is after evening dinner.


  • For over 28 years many people throughout NZ have used Self Heal's Swedish Bitters cream to support healthy skin.
    It both moisturises and soothes.
    Feet, face, ears, babies' bottoms, nipples, gardening hands and joints.
