Gemmotherapy

From Health Facts

Jump to: navigation, search

Gemmotherapy refers to a branch of phytotherapy or herbal medicine, which uses the buds and young shoots from trees and shrubs. These parts are found to consist mainly of embryonic tissue and are gathered in the spring at a particular stage in their natural growth cycle. They are then macerated in a water-alcohol-glycerin solution to create concentrated extracts. Since they are extracts of embryonic tissues, their importance lies in possessing all of the properties of the various parts of the whole plant.
