Herbal medicine: plants to pick during the summer

Who has never been tempted to collect herbs and flowers during their walks? But successful picking is informed picking. To get home with a well-stocked basket, a few precautions and tips are needed.

Start by looking in the right places. Each wild plant has its favorite area, an ideal environment (naturalists and botanists say a “biotope”) where it finds the right conditions to form populations. In the shade, in the sun, in dry or humid soils, in poor or rich soils, in the plains or at altitude… you will not find the same plants.

Plant in unpolluted areas

Avoid urban areas, brownfields and roadsides, loaded with polluting particles. In the countryside, we are not better off. Stay away from fields cultivated with corn, wheat or rapeseed, impregnated with pesticides.

And, above all, be careful, do not get the wrong plant, because in nature there are also beautiful poisoners! The silhouette, size, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds are all points to observe for a good identification. Use a wild flora guide and, if in doubt, have your harvest examined by a pharmacist. Attention, age, certain chronic diseases, allergies… are contraindications for certain plants to respect.
