In search of the new herbalists


In the manner of an investigation, the director Daniel Schlosser is interested in new farmers herbalists, who are trying to rehabilitate the profession of herbalist whose diploma removed in 1941 has never been restored.

Why is the use of medicinal plants - which is very popular among the public - today a heterogeneous reality, sometimes confusing, and why there is no official status in France?

What are the difficulties and motivations of those who have returned to the profession of herbalism?

Herbalist peasants, phytotherapists, doctors of pharmacy, senator and MEP, defend free use of medicinal plants in France.
