Speick has been one of the most protected Alpine plant species for a long time. But local farmers have special permission to gather a determined number of these little plants in autumn for us to use exclusively in our Speick natural cosmetics. The harvest, known as the "Speick Sting" and completed by hand, lasts for one week and is an important and regular additional source of income for these farmers who live an otherwise somewhat frugal existence up in the mountains.

One forgotten and rediscovered medicinal plant - Speick on the right track
Speickis known in botanical circles as Valerina celtica. Its Latin name iscultural history at its best "Valere" is Latin for "stay healthy", and"celtica" stands for its Celtic background, today the alpine NockMountains in Carinthia, Austria. The medicinal plant has a calmingeffect on the central nervous system while simultaneously stimulatingthe vegetative nervous system. Speick relaxes without tiring andrevitalises body, mind, and soul. Speick was previously known as Spicaceltica. The medicinal plant?s rootstock is reminiscent of an ear ofgrain, and so was unceremoniously dubbed Spica, the Latin word forthis. Spica became Speick over the course of the plant?s centuries ofhistory. To find Speick, you must first cover many vertical meters,leaving the treeline of the Carinthian Alps well behind. You can findwhat you?re looking for from 1,800m. Speick builds its harmonisingstrength in the protected Nock Mountains Biosphere Reserve.
ValuableSpeick oil has been gently extracted from the roots of the plant forthousands of years. Speick was used to perfume bathes, and afterwards,the valuable oil was used for skin care in Egypt in 500 BC. Forcenturies, several tonnes of Speick was exported from Venice to allover the world every day. The plant was already used for medicinal usesin the 10th century. The doctor Galen cured Kaiser Marc Aurel?s stomachproblems with Speick. The plant was worth its weight in gold and waslater subject to high taxes. Speick was exported to Turkey, Syria,Morocco and Sudan until the start of the 20th century. In 1936, Speickwas threatened with extinction and was placed under protection. Withit, Speick promptly lost its economic importance and sank into oblivion.
Speickis harvested by hand, as it has been for centuries. The Speick harvestis an important source of income for the two alpine farming familieswith harvesting licenses. Speick natural cosmetics are the onlyproducts in the world to contain the unique Speick extract, which hasbeen certified as from biologically regulated wild harvesting since2003. Speick extract is combined with other ingredients, depending onthe product.
