Welcome to Les Âmes Fleurs!
Latin name : Astragalus membranaceus
Part : Root organic
Country : China
Amount : 100 g or 454 g (1lb)
Properties : Powerful tonic that fights against inflammation, infections, viruses and bacteria. It slows down the premature aging of cells. It is an immunostimulant that takes itself not during a acute crisis, but rather in the long term, in prevention and in recovery. Considered a "hot" plant, it risks worsening the effects of "heat" associated with acute infections. It can be added to broths and soups.
Plant powders' uses: In capsules, in food, in smoothie, in pastilles and energy balls, then externally (cosmetics, ointments, poultices). Unless exceptional, plant powders are not soluble in water, although several molecules they contain. For better results, it is preferable to extract these molecules in water, alcohol or in oil (certain molecules are fat -soluble). For more information, the Schools Flowers offers an introductory workshop and an à la carte course on the manufacture of therapeutic products.
We advise to consult a health professional before using medicinal plants, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or under medication.
