Health Plants


M. Yaranga Diarra, thérapeute à Bamako

We don't have storage warehouses. Our plants are purchased, on request of the customers, without brokers, with the local Associations of Women, of Traditional Healers and Herbalists, formed to the non-destructive harvesting in zones of spontaneous vegetation growth (away from sources of chemical, biological or radioactive pollution) or to the biological cultivations, to the selection and to the controlled natural exsiccation. The vegetal drugs, after an accurate quality control, are pulverized and manufactured in bags of polyethylene certified for food.

The hard challenge, on which Aidemet-Mali is engaged, is to conjugate scientific rigour and guarantee of quality together with economic self-based development of the local populations.

The profits drawn by the ethical commercialization of medicinal plants are run over in the activities of support to the Associations of the Traditional Healers and protection of the vegetal bio-diversity.
