LADY'S MANTLE, AN INNNOVATIVE PLANT
Lady's mantle, MAISON FLAMEL's plant
The lady's mantle, or alchemilla vulgarisis the plant of alchemists and women.
Also called the mantle of Our Lady, this plant has extraordinary hormonal properties: in infusion, it helps women to overcome their difficulties (painful menstruation, pre-menopause, etc.) and men to regain their virility.
From the Middle Ages , it is said that the alchemists collected every morning the dew which accumulated on the leaves of lady's mantle in order to use this "heavenly water" in the manufacture of the elixir of youth.
Intrigued by this plant which was intuitively revealed to him one good morning, the creator of MAISON FLAMEL Samer Zakharia commissioned his agronomist
to study the lady's mantle in depth.
