Native to the tropics of both Africa and South America, this sharp-tasting plant may date from a time before the drifting of the continents. People of traditional cultures in the old and the new world independently discovered its uses. Alfred Vogel and his gardeners worked closely to select the best variety for this tincture, which can be used internally and externally.
