Welcome to Les Âmes Fleurs!
The importance of local purchase! Medicinal plants cultivated in Quebec are more expensive, but the quality is exceptional. Our herbalist makes them dry whole (with some exceptions), in the art rules. The plants are cultivated here and do not have to travel (polluting transport) far up to your home. In addition, they are always freshly dried. Paying a little more to encourage our producers is worth the investment!

Latin name : Obliquus inonotus
Parts : Mushroom harvested in wilderness on the birch and reduced to powder once dried, with a lot of love, by the herbalist Églantine Vignon. The harvest is done in a responsible manner by leaving about 30% of the fungus on the tree so that it regenerates.
Country : Canada / Quebec
Properties : Chaga is a medicinal fungus and a super food. It contains many antioxidants, is rich in vitamin B, enzymes and minerals. It also contains flavonoids (anti-inflammatory drugs) and phenols (antiseptics). It prevents the aging of the body in general and is considered an adaptogen. Medicinal fungi have an interest in being transformed into a decoction. In the case of Chaga, you can make it a "coffee" (1 tbsp per cup of water) and rein infuse a 2nd time. Medicinal fungi are effective when taking them over several months.
Precautions: In theory, it is contraindicated with autoimmune diseases because it stimulates the immune system.
When you take internal plants for specific health problems, we strongly advise you to consult a therapist herbalist to obtain a health assessment, personalized, safe and efficient treatment, then follow-up. You can contact Marie-Christine Vallières, herbalist, at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment for a private video con consultation ($ 80).
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.
