Why do we recommend ordering Icelandic moss from our company?

Icelandic moss is a rather amazing natural creation – it dies under unfavorable environmental conditions. Moreover, this applies not only to the soil, but also to the air. This lichen is a kind of indicator of environmental cleanliness.

Icelandic moss grows in swampy and mountainous areas in the north of the planet. Our company has freelance herbal collectors. Essentially, these people are healers – herbalists who know when, where, how and what herbs need to be collected. The moss that we offer you “comes” from Russia. Our herbalists collect it in Siberia, Karelia and Altai. The area where our “wild” Icelandic moss was collected is ecologically clean, therefore the lichen is high-quality and safe.

Cetraria is used to treat diseases not only by traditional healers, but also by official medicine. This in itself is strange, because doctors usually do not recognize traditional medicine.

Where, besides Iceland, does beneficial moss grow?

Cetraria loves the cleanest corners of the planet. And not only in Iceland, but also in Scandinavia, Great Britain, Australia and Russia. For example, Icelandic moss grows in the Altai region. Cetraria reacts painfully to polluted air, soil and water, as well as human intervention, so for the locals it is practically sacred. Under ideal conditions, moss grows only 1 cm per year, and in the mountains – only a couple of millimeters.

The healing effect of delicate and fragile Icelandic moss is recognized by traditional medicine. And cetraria can rightfully be classified as a universal remedy, because it is even used in cooking: baked goods, jelly, jelly and sweets are made from it!
