What is the origin of gemmotherapy?

Gemmotherapy is an alternative medicine derived from phytotherapy which uses the buds and young shoots of trees and shrubs. The macerates of buds are the result of maceration of fresh buds harvested in the spring, at a key point in their natural development cycle, in a mixture of water, alcohol and glycerin. The bud extracts obtained are called glycerin macerates.

The use of plant buds dates back to the Middle Ages, where alchemists made ointments and syrups to treat respiratory ailments.

However, it was not until 1970 that gemmotherapy officially appeared in the pharmacopoeia, thanks to the publications of the work of Belgian doctor Pol Henry. Indeed, he was the first to put forward the hypothesis that the embryonic plant tissues must contain all the informative energy for the development of trees. He called this discovery " phytembryotherapy ".

The first bud extract studied by him was that of the downy birch (Betula pubescens).

Plant embryonic tissues have an incredible nutritional richness: growth hormones, vitamins, minerals, trace elements ...
