Strawberry Mint Shrub (based on Joy of Cooking recipe)

April 12, 2019

strawberry shrub recipeAuthor: Lily Mazzarella MS, CNS 


  • 2 cups sliced organic strawberries
  • 1 c sweetener of choice (I used organic cane sugar)
  • 1-2 c vinegar of choice (I used organic red wine vinegar)
  • 1 handful organic mint leaves, torn or chopped

Combine the strawberries and sweetener in a bowl and stir. Cover, and refrigerate for 1-2 days, stirring 1-2 times per day. A thin syrup should form. On the 2nd or 3rd day, strain through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, and add mint, vinegar and/or sweetener to taste. This one needed no adjusting!


Nervine Mocktail:

  • 1-2 oz shrub
  • Several mint leaves, crushed
  • 6-8 oz sparkling water
  • 2-5 droppers of "Feeling Easy" tincture or "Schisandra Sour" tincture


  • 1-2 oz shrub
  • 1.5 oz clear rum or cachaca
  • 6-8 oz sparkling water
  • Mint leaves to garnish

    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.
