Sticky Extract of Wild Lettuce

Wild lettuce has been a staple of nature's medicine cabinet for many millennia! Wild lettuce extract, also called lettuce opium, or lactucarium, came into pretty big production in the 19th century. The center of this production was in Aubière, France, though it was also grown in the Moselle valley in the southwest of Germany. The method developed by the pharmacist H. Aubergier in Aubière, involved employing the women of the village to cut the plants and harvest the sap by hand. These days it's done by a tailored extraction process using water and alcohol in a modern laboratory.

This extract is freeze dried for handling and becomes sticky in the air.
