Meyer Lemon - Ginger Shrub

April 12, 2019

shrub recipeAuthor: Lily Mazzarella MS, CNS 


  • 4-6 organic Meyer lemons, zested and chopped (retain zest!) + 1 lemon
  • 1 2-inch piece of organic ginger, grated
  • 1 cup sweetener of choice (I used organic coconut nectar)
  • 1-2 c vinegar of choice (I used ACV + organic white wine)

Combine the lemon zest, chopped lemons, ginger and sweetener in a bowl. Mix and squeeze the juice of 1 lemon left (you can throw its zest in, too!)

Cover, and refrigerate for 1-3 days, stirring once a day. Strain the syrup that forms, and mix with vinegar in equal parts.

Nervine Mocktail:

  • 1-2 oz shrub
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 6-8 oz sparkling water
  • 2-5 droppers of "Orange Twist"


  • 1-2 oz shrub
  • 1 oz organic vodka (I like Hanson's Grape vodka)
  • 1 oz Elderflower cordial or liqueur (St Germain is the best; others are decent and much less expensive!)
  • 5-6 oz of sparkling water—a grapefruit essenced one goes nicely!

Got Sick - Respiratory Specific
Catherine - San Francisco
Extra-Level Respiratory Support

Nourishing Lung tincture has been our go-to during the now-annual fire season, reducing the impacts of smoke & polluted air, and for providing overall respiratory support.
Got Sick-Respiratory Specific is a great addition for the onset of URIs and other respiratory distress, as it seems to act rapidly and deeply. It's also very effective in combination with Nourishing Lung. My husband was developing a URI following surgery, and before calling the Dr for antibiotics, he opted to try using both tinctures, together with Got Sick regular formula. Significant improvement occurred within 12 hours and he was able to clear it without medication. Highest recommendation.

Thank you for letting us know how these worked for you!

Like the ease of the capsules. Also use the powder. Excellent way to add fiber and help digestive track. Definitely use it daily.

Helps some when eating dairy or gluten on a occasional basis. Have purchased several bottles over the past few years.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.
