Gemmotherapy comes from the Latin word “gemmae,” which refers both to a gemstone and to a bud. It is well known that new trees grow from cuttings. Trees have an extraordinary capacity for renewal. Using buds taps into this regenerative power. However, each tree has a specific action on the human body. Gemmotherapy, also called “bud medicine,” is a type of phytotherapy. Plant usage distinguishes phytotherapy from gemmotherapy. Gemmotherapy uses the embryonic part of a plant.
