Explain a typical day of work at BOTALYS.
It is not easy to explain a typical day at work because my tasks vary every day.
When I am not supporting the production department, I carry out experiments in the laboratory to develop new medicinal plants. Each day, a new experience!
In your job, what project are you the proudest of?
I would be Rhodiola rosea. This plant, which is an integral part of my work, is so fascinating because of its numerous benefits.
Did you know that the Vikings, looking for strength, endurance, and vigor to fight the enemy, were the first to use this plant?
Nature has always played a big part in my life.
Ever since I was little, I have been fascinated by everything Mother Nature offers us.
When I don’t feel great, I like to go for a long walk in the forest to enjoy its benefits.
Can you give us a mantra that drives you in Life?
