Jardin des Monts has given new life to a splendid mountain pasture in Rossinière in the Vaudois Alps. Using organically grown and harvested mountain plants, two horticulturists make delicious herbal teas, syrups, candles, cosmetics and sweets.
The Jardin des Monts herbalist shop is located in an enchanting spot in Rossinière in the Vaudois Alps. The pasture, forest and two chalets that constitute the estate offer a panoramic view on Pays-d’Enhaut.
In 2006, the arrival of two horticulturists Charlotte Landolt-Nardin and Laetitia Jacot gave the estate a new lease on life. They created terraces to plant close to thirty varieties of Alpine plants based on the principles of organic agriculture. To complement their cultures, they gather flowers and wild herbs in the surroundings of the garden.
This harvest is transformed into six beneficial infusions, as well as five syrups based on thyme, peppermint and other Alpine plants. In addition to these beverages, Charlotte and Laetitia make body care products, candles, candies and chocolates. They also organise visits and educational workshops on the mountain pasture.
