HORSE CHESTNUT LIQUID EXTRACT

10 g of flowers or peeled chestnut fruits are crushed and poured with 100 ml of vodka, and then the remedy is put for infusion for one week in a dark place. During infusion, tincture should be periodically shaken. The strained tincture is drunk 30 drops three times a day.

“The Chestnut tree does not know it is naked nor imperfect; instead, it srands proud and unapologetic for all those whose opinions matter not.”
