Le Thé de la Soeur Borel, Tournus (Saône-et-Loire (71))

A brilliant wall advertisement, now restored, shows 'C'est à la racine et non aux branches que frappe le thé de la Soeur Borel': the tree represents illness and merely chopping down the branches and not hitting out at the root will not solve the problem. Le thé la Soeur Borel will sort things out, it was a laxative, a purative agent, etc, and indeed this treatment was sold in chemists' shops for a certain time, although I haven't spotted any specific dates yet.
