The Ficus carica has successfully adapted to cold temperate zones in a spectacular way!
It is this adaptability that we experience when taking Fig tree macerate, we can better withstand difficult life conditions by putting events into perspective. Many other Fig trees are used in popular medicine or by Shamans to open up knowledge of other plants: they are "teacher" plants thanks to which it is not useful to know other plants since these Ficus make it possible to discover the best plants suitable for healing a particular sick person (Ojé, Ficus insipia / insipidia)
Ficus religiosa has been used in India since time immemorial by all the “wise men” to help with meditation.

The Fig tree is not present in the Bach flowers because the flowering is not visible, it is hidden in the fruit.
There is still a lot of research to be done on the mental effect of the Fig tree which is both desire , knowledge and spirituality.
The Fig tree is a tree of uncertain origins but probably tropical if we consider its particular silhouette and its instantaneous adaptability when transferred to the tropics. It is indeed a bush shrub tree that grows thanks to the heat and not by the effect of the lengthening of the days at the winter solstice unlike all our other fruit trees. Among the large family of Ficus (700 different taxa) it is the only one to have achieved the feat of adaptation in temperate zones and succeeded in going dormant in winter by withstanding temperatures down to -20° C and in creating an additional fructification of delayed figs improperly called "Flower Figs" instead of "Delayed Figs".
Let's move in the spring
almost all land, "head in the sun and feet in the water"
“Ficus”: Latin “ Ficatum ” the liver, in Antiquity in Egypt, geese were force-fed with figs.
The fig tree is a tree that visually combines both the masculine: the figs are the testicles, and the feminine: the figs when they split are the female sex, the Greeks in antiquity called the female sex fig (see Aristophanes ) and the Italians always call this one “Fica”. There are many allusions to sex around the fig tree in Mediterranean culture and what is contradictory with this sexual exposure of the fig tree is that all its reproduction is done hidden in the fruit to the point that Linnaeus in the 18th century will classify the fig tree in the cryptograms, the plants whose sexuality is invisible, hidden in the crypt! In short, one could say like man.
This visible double sexuality of the fig tree is an organic reality: it is a hermaphroditic tree.
The signature or similarity theory assumes that a fruit is particularly beneficial for the part of the body it resembles. Thus, it is proven that the fig promotes the production of spermatozoa; however, the fig tree is a latex plant, whose white liquid resembles sperm or milk. In general, all latex plants are of interest to ancient peoples, for example the case of lettuce, which the Egyptians associated with fertility.
