Weleda launch Prunus 6X Drops

Feeling sluggish after a nasty virus or series of colds? Weleda’s fortifying medicinal drops are made from the fresh leaf tips of biodynamically grown blackthorn, handpicked from hedges at Weleda’s own Derbyshire gardens, to ensure the purity, quality and efficacy of the end product.

The mother tincture for Weleda’s new Prunus 6X Drops (rrp £9.95 25ml) is made from fresh handpicked shoots, which are harvested immediately after the blackthorn flowers when the leaves put on new growth. So the product harnesses the vitality of the plant’s new growth, captured in a natural anthroposophic medicine for the symptomatic relief of fatigue following stress or illness. Take 5-7 drops in a little water, three times daily, until symptoms improve. This natural medicine is suitable for all the family including elderly people who may benefit from a gentle pick-me-up, as well as older children whose developing immune systems are continually challenged by all the usual bugs doing the rounds at school. The drops are not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding, and are not recommended for children under 12.
