No 17th century physician's medical desk could be complete without some mysterious tubs filled with strange and pungent ingredients. In the time of Dr Arnott, a real physician who once lived on Mary King's Close, it was essential to analyse and sample patients' internal fluids in order to concoct them an effective cure. 

A tube of Bleeding Veins & Blood Clots would certainly indicate that some bloodletting has been going on, which was commonly believed to treat headaches and vertigo. Fortunately, these veins and clots taste rather more like Strawberry Pencils & Strawberry Twist Kisses.
