Peppermint leaf Like a good friend, peppermint is always welcome. Its light ascendant menthol awakens digestion and clears sluggishness. It can encourage a fresh perspective when things seem to be blocking your way.
Ginger root Considered to be good for everybody, fresh ginger moves your energy upwards and outwards waking up your whole system. Its sweet-spicy nature diffuses any clouds obscuring your view.
Rosemary Better on its own than you might think, rosemary is famous for helping you think more clearly by removing a muzzy head. It literally pulls you up by your socks.
Turmeric root A renowned liver cleanser, turmeric speeds up the metabolism of alcohol and fats, making your day a whole lot easier, a whole lot faster.
Angostura bitters A classic herbal concoction. A dash of these super herbs can awaken your digestion and transport you to another world (far away from your hangover).
