Wild harvesting is how our ancestors have gathered herbs, roots and flowers for thousands of years. The unique nature of the herbs which have grown uncultivated (in natural conditions of their growth, without outer stimulation, therefore not containing harmful substances) is that such plants have undergone a natural selection – only the most resilient, strong plants, rich in nutrients and active components, survive.
Wild harvesting has a number of requirements: the time of gathering has to be aligned with the time of maximum accumulation of valuable nutritive and biologically active substances in the plant. If gathered prematurely, plant stock can’t be used for therapeutic purposes. Since ancient times, healers and herbalists, who have been healing people, have been working on the calendar of gathering medicinal herbs. On the same spot, it is recommended to gather leaves every year, roots and root stock every 2-3 years, and some plants every 5-6 or more years in order for nature to accumulate lost reserves.
