First of all, what is a plant? It is a rich and complex vegetable composed of aerial parts (leaves, flowers, fruits, etc.) and underground parts (roots, stems, etc.) which contains therapeutic compounds (active ingredients). The medicinal plant refers to the active part of the plant that has been isolated (bark, leaves, stems, etc.) to benefit from its therapeutic properties. It is NOT intended to be injected intravenously or intramuscularly. It is taken internally (infusion, decoction, maceration, gargling, etc.) or externally (bath, poultice, compress, inhalation, enema, etc.). Its effectiveness depends very much on the harvesting process and preservation, as these two factors have a direct impact on quality. Quality being our number 1 priority, none of our plants have undergone modifications to improve their presentation, taste or packaging.
