Boozy raisons for pain?

Interesting article about benefits of raisons soaked in gin for dealing with pain. Apparently juniper berries have long been used for healing.

It's a good read anyway, whether or not you give it any credibility :)

Hello to all after 10 day gap while Ive been moving.

  • Good to see you back - I hope you can find everything now! Once upon a time made some wine with tea and raisins - it was horrible.


  • Thank you A1. That wine sounds a bit rough - i used to make wine a long time ago, seem to remember it tasting a bit metallic.

  • Nearly as bad as tea! I got very good at it in the end - Oak leaves, nettles, elderflower, clover, broom.

    I hope you are going to be really happy in your new home -just take your time :-)


  • good luck in your home o2
