Floramor Kruiden is a private enterprise created in Amsterdam in 1996 by Lila Cavaleiro, a portuguese resident in Holland.
The departing point of this undertaking has been the introducing in Holland of medicinal herbs from unpolluted wildernesses and biologic farms of sunny Portugal, intending thus also to call attention to the threat that represents to the native flora the over-planting of eucalyptus.
This eventually led to a small-scale distribution of herbs from Portugal and creation of Floramor´s own herbal products: home made original compositions based on traditional recipes of folk herb-medicine.
Further research into the healing power of plants and surch for biologic herb producers in Portugal led the iniciater Lila Cavaleiro to the aquaintance of a family entreprise dedicated to the production of cold pressed oils and essential oils from biologic plants grown in their own extense farms and gardens. That´s how oils and aromatherapy items appear in Floramor list of products

Since the “discovery” of Brasil that some native brasilian herbs are part of the Portuguese herbal culture; this fact, visiting Brasil and traveling in the Amazonia rain forest brought to Floramor´s assortiment brasilian species, some of which are classic in Portugal and some that are “classic” only among the Indians.
While in the Amazónia Lila met the creaters of the Amazonia Flower Remedies – Florais da Amazónia. Being interested in the subject (fascinated by the findings of Dr. Bach) she participated in their workshops and decided to bring Florais da Amazónia to Floramor.

Lila´s biography.
My link with herbs and nature started at birth in a isolated community in the mountains of north Portugal, with no electricity, no motor road.There were no doctors either, so, as anywhere else on the globe in the same situation, people turn to the nature for remedies.
My maternal grand mother with whom I lived, knew many herbal secrets and could help many people; she used to take me with her on hikes into distant hills and valleys in search of specific herbs and I became her assistant during healing sessions.
I left my native place and my grand mother in order to pursue a school education in the city and later abroad; but the years spent with her and her teachings are ever more vivid and precious.
Meanwhile, in the big world, the asthma that I inherited was manifesting increasingly and I tried modern medicines and specialists of reputation all over Europe with very poor results and destructive side effects.
Many years later on a spiritual quest I found myself in the Himalayas the pupil of a yogi who had renounced the world in which he had been a doctor. He seemed to know all the plants that grew in the jungles where he had made his home. One day he collected some leaves to make asthma cigarettes for a chella; I immediately recognized the plant that often, as a kid, I had to inhale the smoke to get relief from asthma. This was turning the direction of my search for healing back to the roots.

Passionate traveler, always interested in folk medicine and the native species of the places I visited while traveling in India, Mongolia, South America and Europe. I find out that many species are to be found all over and are used for the same ends, as is the case of datura stramonium leaves for asthma.
Later in life and back in Europe, needing a new occupation I folowed an old track: visited village healers/herbalists in remote areas of Portugal, where this knowledge is still alive. I started to colect herbs in the wild during holidays.
I have access to first kwality herbs legally plucked in the wild nature and from bio-producers in sunny Portugal; that´s how the idea came of starting a small distribution in Holland, mainly Amsterdam, creating Floramor Kruiden.
In my quest for good suppliers I made the aquaintance of a family in Portugal that produce bio-certified herbs and several generations dedicated to the distilation of medicinal herbs to obtain their quintessence – the pure essential oils of aromatherapy. I was interested in the subject, I had followed courses of Aromatherapy in Holland Germany, learned how to use the scents, tried them with success and so we find some products of aromatherapy in the list of Floramor products.

While in Brazil, in the Amazonian rain forest I colaborated with Medicina da Floresta (medicine of the forest) working in the laboratories and plantations; there I met M.A. Campos Freire and I.Facchini Barsé, the creators of Florais da Amazónia, participated in their workshops on amazonian flower remedies and elemental therapy.
I toured as translater and assistent of the Brasilian etno-botanist Vera Froes co-foundater of IECAM (Instituto de Estudos da Cultura Amazónica) during her series of lectures, seminars and workshops in Holland, Germany and India.
Meanwhile I´ve been developing my own original products: like “Aura Clear”, “Foenix Elixir”, “Oil of Santa Maria”.
I have been my first test-pacient. My success in self healing with herbs, compells me to expand beyond myself: many other fellow humans need the healing help of Mother Nature and I can guide some steps into making a link with Her through the healing plants. The knowledge and experience collected along my life path I want to share.
