The young shoots harvested in autumn are the source of Mistletoe Gemmotherapy Extract. The Mistletoe is a very particular plant, totally aerial, it does not have terrestrial roots. Hemiparasite of various trees, it clings to them thanks to suckers which draw, in summer, the sap of the parasitized tree. In winter, the host tree, having lost its leaves, the Mistletoe receives enough light to use its restricted chlorophyll function and produce its own vital energy. It grows in the form of balls, clearly visible in winter, which can parasitize a large part of the host tree and suggest tumors.
Mistletoe leaves are always green and can live for a very long time, up to 2 years. Its very small flowers give birth to whitish, translucent berries with a viscous and sticky pulp called glue. Birds participate in its dissemination by eating the berries and eliminating the seeds still coated with glue that will allow them to attach themselves to the branches of the trees they will parasitize.
Mistletoe was the favorite plant of the Celtic druids, the one “that heals everything”, and was harvested from the oak tree (a tree that it rarely parasitizes) with a golden billhook during incantatory ceremonies.
