- Agrimony A plant common to the temperate regions of Europe, Asia and Africa, Agrimony grows modestly along roads, on banks and in clearings where its slender cluster of yellow flowers is easily recognized in the summer. The dried plant was a common remedy throughout the Middle Ages and was drunk as an infusion (wood tea) to enhance digestion, liberate the liver and kidneys and soothe soar throats. Recent studies have revealed the presence of flavonoids which ensure a vascular-protective action and especially remarkable stimulating properties on lymphatic circulation.
- Kaki The kaki, or persimmon, is a fruit tree originating from the mountains of China and Japan which is also grown across the Mediterranean. Its fleshy fruit with a smooth, orange skin, resembles a tomato. The kaki is eaten when very ripe and is a rich source of energy. All parts of the tree have medicinal properties. The extract from the bark is astringent, the juice from its fruit helps to reduce hypertension and the calyx is a recognized remedy for coughs.
- Crowberry This small bush has needle-shaped evergreen leaves and grows only in peat bogs, a vegetal ecosystem that is cold, humid and acid. It grows well in Alaska, Canada, Finland and Norway, where its small black berries, rich in vitamins and minerals, are a major element in culinary culture. In the medical field, Crowberry is traditionallyused for its anti-diarrhea action while its leaves and roots are used for their diuretic and ophthalmic virtues. Scientists have recently discovered that Crowberry contains flavonoids. These natural substances are recognized for their anti-inflammatory/anti-oxidant properties and for their capacity to inhibit the enzymeresponsible for the degradation of collagen and the development of adipose tissue.
- Sunflower The name "Helianthus" from the Greek "helios" (sun) and "anthos" (flower), is derived from a legend of Greek mythology. In the myth, a young mortal falls in love with the god Helios and dies from love by constantly watching him. Moved by her plight, Helios turns her into a plant whose flower head follows the movement of the sun throughout the day. In cosmetics, sunflower is used in many ways. The oil and wax from the seeds have moisturizing and protective benefits.
- Kudzu This exotic plant originates from China and Japan. Commonly called the « kudzu vine », it produces clinging vine-like shoots. It was introduced last century to the United States for its wonderful purple flowers, as a rich source of nutrients for the soil and its ability to slow down erosion with roots which can reach up to two metres in length. The pueraria is used in Asian cooking as a starch to thicken dishes.
