The old timers swore by it, it was given to women after
childbirth and anyone who was poorly.
How interesting! I wonder what the tonic did exactly? What were the beneficial properties of the eggs in it?
Thanks for the recipe! Im looking for herbs and spices to ease childbirth during and afterwards for my 6th birth.
Hi Dear Friend,
So glad you like My Grannies Tonic. From memory, the eggs are a whole food
and the dissolved egg shells in the lemon juice are a source of calcium.
The Brandy preserves it and of course is a good remedy in itself
It is a tonic to help the mother and feeding child, or it can be great also
for a very debilitated person who cant eat much else.
I remember when I had Catherine I was told to drink Stout and Raspberry and
eat peanuts to increase breast milk.
Raspberry leaf tea is a well known remedy for childbirth. Apple cider
vinegar and honey also a great remedy.
Re Grannies Remedy a man who was very ill used it and gained much needed
weight and got himself back to good health.
Wishing you and your liitle one every Blessing,
