In 1974, Mr Léo Désilets, a gentleman totally impassioned by nature, plants and forestry would have a fortuitous meeting with destiny that would forever change his life, and by extension, forever change the face of the natural health industry in Canada.
Indeed, while out on a walk through the forest, Mr. Désilets one day encountered a very jovial group of Native Americans from the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean area, who proceeded to talk to him at length about one of their unique traditional remedies – balsam fir gum. They explained its various unique health benefits in detail and outlined its myriad therapeutic applications.
So impressed was Mr. Désilets that he decided then and there to start harvesting the precious traditional remedy himself to distribute it in local pharmacies, so that the community could also learn about all of the unique benefits of balsam fir gum. Over forty years later, Léo Désilets Master Herbalist has become a leader in the Natural Health Products industry, offering a unique range of effective and safe natural health products, of the highest quality.
