The medicinal use of Angelica (Archangelica) became popular from the 15th Century onwards. Culpeper saw it as a wonder herb and recommended it for conditions ranging from dog bites to gout. It is effective as a stomachic, gastric stimulant, antispasmodic and very effective against flatulence. The root is used in this preparation.

Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) is one of the oldest culinary spices known, being revered in the Bible. It was brought to Europe by the Portuguese, who invaded Sri Lanka just to obtain supplies. Cinnamon bark is distilled and used in this preparation to stimulate digestion.

The use of Melissa (Lemon Balm) leaves began in the 15th Century to treat many disorders. Spirit of Carmelite, produced by the Carmelite monks in Paris since the 16th Century using Melissa leaves, was thought to be particularly useful. Melissa leaf has definite soothing and antispasmodic effects. It has a warming effect on the metabolism, stimulating the production of gastric juices.

Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans) has been used for centuries in both Western and Eastern cultures mainly as a carminative and stimulant in treating flatulence, indigestion, nausea and other stomach problems.

Lemon peel is used to obtain refreshing Lemon oil.

Cloves (Syzygium aromaticumare) the dried flower buds of the tree. They were used as a ceremonial herb and a medicine in the far east before they reached Europe in the 4th Century. Clove is recognised as a digestive stimulant.

Coriander (Coriandrum sativum). This herb has been in cultivation for over 3,000 years and has become an established ingredient in cookery throughout the world. It was introduced to Britain by the Romans. Effective against flatulence, it has an antispasmodic action and stimulates the gastric juices.
