Greek Sea Buckthorn (Evros, Thrace)


Known as Hippophaes in Greece (pronounced "e-pof-i-es"), it means “bright horse”. This amazing native herb, a virtual superfood, earned its moniker in the days of Alexander the Great (circa 350 BC), from the reviving effects it had when he and his men would feed it to horses that were wounded in battle.
