Phytotherapy, as the name suggests is a treatment (therapy) by plants (phyto).
It is one of the oldest medicines in the world. The druids of old Europe (600 years BC), made common use of it and were aware of the virtues of mistletoe against sterility.
Our grandmothers knew how to use chamomile to revive blond hair, rose to lighten the complexion, borage to cleanse skin.
In fact, plants are rich in minerals and trace elements which are carried by the sap. Their therapeutic properties are due to the active ingredients located in their different organs: Leaves, fruits, flowers, roots, rhizomes …
In recent years, we have noticed a thirst for balance, and returning to nature, it seems that herbal teas, capsules, essential oils and flower essences have never been so successful.
We are going back to basics.
In cosmetology, essential oils are often used, a steam distillation of aromatic plants to extract the essence. These active ingredients are used in the composition of products for the face and body, in creams, masks, massage oils, wraps, etc.
Plants are complex, but with time we have gotten to know many of them and their beneficial properties.
