With our hectic schedules, sometimes it can be hard to find the time to relax and unwind. Small moments of calm, peppered throughout your day can end up making a big difference though – even something as simple as taking a minute or two out to enjoy a comforting Ricola herbal sweet.
From intoxicating sage and peppermint, to soothing mallow and elderflower, Ricola contains a unique blend of 13 Swiss-grown herbs. Emil Richterich, the company’s founder, created this signature blend 80 years ago with wellbeing in mind – growing the herbs in the fresh pure air of the Swiss mountains.
