The origins of Druide®
The The first Druide® products were creaded in 1979 in Racine, a village in the Quebec Appalachian region. Druide®’s vision was inspired by traditional natural treatments that respect the body and environment. Several thousand years ago, druids were very important figures within Celtic society. They used vital energy from plants to relieve members of their communities’ pains and sicknesses. We now call this ancient practice phytotherapy: the use of plants for therapeutic ends. Druide® takes inspiration from these druids’ missions; these passionate visionaries who were the first healers of Celtic times. Our products thus enclose the virtues of botanical extracts and essential oils, in order to offer a natural, organic and non-toxic alternative to body care. They are all biodegradable and not tested on animals.
The Druide® logo: the tree of life
Celtics maintained a privileged relationship with trees, not only for their beauty and longevity, but also for their capacity to heal sickness. As synonyms of life, they constituted the link between the divine and terrestrial worlds, through branches turned towards the sky and roots anchored in soil. Druids came together a the foot of old oak trees to share their knowledge.
In that light, the Druide® tree symbol was born. Like the Celtic tree of life, the Druide® tree lies on a bed of grass which grows in its presence. Our philosophy is thus to assure and maintain the health and wellness of each client, all the while preserving the environment.
