THE SALT MARSHES LIFE... TO THE END OF THE SEASON

1 septembre 2017,

When vacationers are still enjoying their summer holidays on the Vendée coast, salt farmers are harvesting the salt in Guérande ! As every year, weather forecasting decides their schedule. This year is precocious because of the April’s drought and the heatwave which took place in the beginning of July.

Half-June, thanks to some cloudy days, we gathered our Green Salicornia in sufficient quantity, just in time before the big salt rush. Indeed, this activity was particularly intense and condensed on a short time.

Owing to these many salt taking, the good news for Guérande Cosmetics is that 2017 will be a very good cru for our Mother-Waters ! Actually, they are already very full and will be particularly rich in magnesium, other mineral salts and micronutrients during its harvest in September.

Plants also endure the drought. Currently, there are beautiful mauve statices, commonly called Sea Lavander. Salicornia will take its lovely red hue from August, but we will wait September for harvesting in order to let it some time to charge itself with its precious polyphenols… We promise you to post photos on the website’s blog in September !
