Herbs, the spirit of Ricola The natural, soothing qualities of medicinal herbs are packed into every single product from Ricola and give them that unmistakably delicious flavour. Such a good and unique flavour, in fact, that you don't need a cough to enjoy Ricola. Ricola's herb speciality range is made from the finest natural ingredients and is well known for its soothing, refreshing and good tasting properties. Ricola has developed its own gentle processes for extracting the essence from the herbs. These preserve the active ingredients and are used to produce a variety of different flavours.
