Ancestor to the pharmacist, the apothecary has been seducing followers of a "green" lifestyle in recent years. Pictured as a medicine maker in the collective imagination, he embodies, even today, a unique traditional knowledge. Traditionally in competition with the herbalist, who disappeared in the middle of the twentieth century, the apothecary has the monopoly on the subject today.
Many members of the profession strive to perpetuate this taste for the authentic. Especially in Provence, where the benefits of medicinal plants have been appreciated by all since olden times. So many ancient secrets are carefully delivered by these enthusiasts, for a detox treatment, in addition to an organic diet, or as an alternative to prescription drugs.
Soothing lavender, immunizing thyme, detoxifying rose and many other ingredients are resuscitated in the form of delicious teas and intoxicating essential oils, making for “miracle” remedies likely to improve your day and pleasantly treat the little problems of each and every one of us. This return to our roots promises a bright future for the apothecary.
