The nice people at Potters Herbals gave me a bottle of their Elixir of Echinacea to try out.
I accepted quite readily when I got the offer – I’m very fond of all types of supplements and herbal remedies, whether scientifically proven or otherwise, and I’m always happy to try something which is supposed to protect against the dreaded cold and flu bugs which do the rounds at this time of the year.
And then I realised what a difficult blog this would be to write. Yes it comes in very attractive packaging and bottle. Yes I think it tastes lovely, and my daughter thinks it tastes horrible (basically an aniseed flavour – you either love it or you hate it).
