The art of infusion through the ages

Infusion Biological History Herbs Saveurs Scents Delights Pleasure

Time infusions

Men have tamed plants and their virtues for millennia. It is believed that the process was discovered in the prehistoric era to recover the virtues and active ingredients of the different plants. It should be noted that the dried medicinal plants were referenced for the first time by the Egyptians in Mesopotamia. We sometimes consider herbalism as the oldest job in the world.

Plants were traditionally used as medicinal plants, either infused to extract their active ingredients or used in local application. For example, the Romans used the saponary to treat skin diseases by sliding a few leaves in bath water. Its use has evolved since it can today be used to do laundry or soap. The Romans used other aromatic plants such as mint, fennel and cardamom to treat themselves.

With the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, we really discover the beneficial effects on health thanks to the progress made in botany. The active ingredients of the plants are then recognized but the plants weaken from their monopoly for care for the benefit of drugs. 50 to 60% of our current drugs are still from these same plants.

Infusions of dried aromatic plants and herbs and their offerings

Unlike modern medicine which stems from the isolation of active ingredients by "hemisynthesis" for a very specific condition, medicinal plants retain all their active ingredients. Using infusion techniques, decoction maceration, it is all active molecules that are used. This is called phytotherapy. Thus, their properties can be described as invigorating, spasmodic, soothing, sweat, antiviral, revitalizing, digestive, calming ... An aspect of these virtues is also described for each of the dried plants of the golden cabri.

We can thus associate dried plants with similar properties to consolidate these effects.

"Nothing is poison, everything is poison, it's the dose that matters" - paracelse

 This is a beautiful introduction to the toxicity of dried plants and herbs. It is essential to pay attention to the dosage and the dosage used. For example, rosemary, which helps tiredness and gallbladder so well, can only be used in high doses 3 consecutive days at the risk of possibly leading to an epilepsy crisis. Also, it is imperative in a therapeutic framework to request a medical advice before embarking on a cure.

Plants, essential elements of humanity

Even today, for most of humanity, the plants are still used to feed, treat themselves, dress, to build, for dyes, incense, etc. Their important role in our survival is conditioned by the presence of bees.

Save our bees

More than 80 % of our plant environment is fertilized by bees, which play a preponderant role of pollinators. Thus, nearly 20,000 threatened plant species are still saved thanks to the pollinating action of the bees and almost 40 % of our diet (fruits, vegetables, oilseeds, etc.) depend exclusively on the fertile action of the bees.

 "If the bee disappeared from the surface of the globe, man would only have four years to live", Einstein

Many petitions exist today to limit or even prohibit certain insecticides used in chemical agriculture, responsible for the collapse of the number of sides pollinators such as bumblebees, butterflies etc.
