Eastern-European folk medicine has likely known chaga (Inonotus obliquus) since the 1500s. Recent research confirmed that chaga possesses a strong antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory effect.
Estonia is a small country of 4.5m hectares, 1.3m of which are organic forests. That’s where chaga mushrooms and Scots pine buds are hand-picked for our elixir. In the preparation of Chaga Health Blackcurrant elixir, we use organic blackcurrant juice made from blackcurrants grown in Setomaa. Our organic honey comes from Everti-Kõrvi, an organic bee farm in Viljandi county. It’s been in the beekeeping business for three generations and runs 100 beehives. Yarrow is a vibrant herb that strengthens the body and grows on any soil in Estonia. Folk medicine has used yarrow to treat coughs, colds, headaches, and general weakness. Organic yarrow comes from the Energy farm by the Navesti river in Estonia’s Viljandi county. Aloe arborescens is a more-exotic ingredient in our elixir. Estonians grew it indoors and used it as a medicine in the early 1900s. But as Estonia is too cold for aloe to grow in the wild. Therefore aloe comes from northern Italy.
