Le Père Blaise : Pharmacy Herbalism in Marseille



In period wooden lockers, nearly 600 medicinal and aromatic plants have adorned the walls for more than 200 years. In 1815, he descended from the Massif des Ecrins and took with him the knowledge of plants, acquired in the mountains.
He opened his pharmacy in 1815 and his legendary "long life herbal tea" quickly became part of his success. Especially since Toussaint Blaize dies at 95, an exceptional age at this time.

Père Blaize's herbalist has been run by the family for six generations.
Right in the center of Marseille, this timeless place offers medicines entirely derived from plants.
