THE ONE WHO INSPIRED ME
Maurice Mességué (14 December 1921-16 June 2017) was a French herbalist and author of several best-selling books on herbal medicine .
“It was 1979 – I was 15 – when I first heard about Maurice Mességué, the French herbalist who began practicing in earnest in 1947, a time when there were virtually no herbalists in North America. One day I was having a walk with my mother in downtown Rome and we went to a bookstore (close to Via Nazionale). . . . She realized I had a strong and deep passion for herbalism so she bought for me, as a present , Messegue's biography. I read it and I was fascinated by his life and work ethic: it was one of the most beautiful books I have ever read ….. Since then he became my “role model” and precious source of inspiration…. it was then I firmly decided to follow in his footsteps”.
Thanks Mom, Thanks Maurice
