What is Icelandmoss ?
Islandmoss is actually not a moss, but to be precise a shrub lichen that grows in upholstery form. It is a close cohabitation of fungi and algae. Nevertheless, many synonyms such as Icelandic moss, Irish moss or fever moss are used. It is a rigid, scaly and antler-like branched plant. Islandmoss can grow to 4 to 15 cm.
Originally, the Icelandic moss was discovered by the Icelanders as a medicinal herb and used for respiratory diseases such as hoarseness and cough as well as inflammation in the mouth. It has also been used successfully for chronic pneumonia or bronchitis. The lichen acids of Islandmoos have an antibiotic effect and are thus irritating and soothing pain. The medicinal plant can be administered in the form of teas, tinctures or tablets.
The Haunted Plant
In ancient legends, Islandmoss is described as an enchanted plant. It was a juicy herb that covered mountains and valleys abundantly and was a blessing to the peasants. Since the farmers did not want to share their wealth, the medicinal plant was captivated and has always grown only under snow. Despite all the legends, Icelandmoos is a highly respected plant in the Nordic countries.
Where does Islandmoos come from
The Icelandic moss we process comes from the forests of Europe to 100%. It grows in the lowlands on sandy soil, in light pine forests or on rocks in mountainous areas between 1500 m and 2500 m altitude. Island moss is harvested from April to September.
In order to permanently reflect the character of durability and feel, the Icelandic moss is processed with our unique, natural preparation. Thus, it remains soft forever and retains all the characteristics coming from the forest. In addition, the preparation protects the moss from sunlight, which benefits the longevity of the paint. We dye with cosmeticlight colours.
