Enfrou (Opuntia Wentiana) is a cactus you can find in many places on the island. That is because every leaf that falls to the ground starts growing again. This cactus can grow up to 2 meters. The gray or white thorns can grow up to 5 centimeters long. If you are punctured by this cactus, it is better not to fiddle with it, because the spine is like a screw and breaks off in the skin. You would never think that the Enfrou can have such beautiful flowers. It blooms in February, March and April. From the beautiful yellow flowers that are just opening, we prepare a flower remedy.

The use of herbs and their medicinal effect goes back to the very beginning of our history.
The earliest civilizations already used plants instinctively for both nutrition and healing. Also, the ancient Egyptians practiced herbal medicine - at a particularly high level. The Jewish people know clergymen who heal people with herbs. Around 460 BC, the father of medicine, Hypocrates, works in Greece. The Romans use herbs and flowers in various ways. In China, herbal systems have traditionally been developed for therapies. Native American Shamans and indigenous African cultures use herbs for healing and rituals.
