Sloe (Prunus Spinosa)

Sloe BushThe fruit of the sloe bush is particularly rich in vitamin C. Today we can purchase sloe in health food shops or pharmacies as a tonic or syrup. It is excellent as a tonic and acts as a mild laxative for children. Sloes can also be preserved in sugar and enjoyed by the spoonful as a remedy for hoarseness.

A decoction can be made from the root skin, a little of which can be mixed with the preserve and then used as a mouthwash. This helps cure sore inflamed mouths, inflamed tonsils and hoarseness.
