A Bit of History
Among the many medicines of old, were the boiled sugars, containing horehound, lemon and other ingredients we now mainly consider flavorings. In the mid-1800s with the rise of the tasty and inexpensive candies, medicines found a new life as drops. Ginger was first brought to North America by British sailors in the 1600s who used it to treat sea sickness.
