Family massage oil
Hazelnut Oil and Lavender infused Olive Oil
Lavender is a strongly aromatic shrub with evergreen leaves and bluish-purple flowers, famous for its fragrance and very attractive to bees.
Romans already used lavender during Antiquity to fragrance thermae baths, and thus benefit from its healing and antiseptic powers on the skin. In the 12th century St. Hildegard of Bingen noticed the mind purifying properties of the plant. All along the Middle Ages, lavender was grown in monastic gardens for its curative powers.
To this day lavender is one of the most popular medicinal plants used in phytotherapy. for instance in the treatment of nervous troubles and insomnia, some skin conditions (eczema, acne, minor burns, insect stings…) or even to relieve joint and rheumatic pains.
On the Domaine we grow the Lavandula Angustifolia variety, also known as True Lavender or English Lavender. It is an outstanding variety both for its olfactory quality and for its richness in active principles.
Solar maceration and formulation
Lavender flowers are handpicked in July, and then immersed in extra virgin organic olive oil for maceration. The oil is infused by the plant’s active principles, adding to omega-9 and antioxidants naturally brought by the olive, known to soften and protect the skin.
The resulting lavender macerated oil is the basis for the FAMILY MASSAGE OIL. It is enriched with organic hazelnut oil, a dry oil very concentrated in vitamin A, E and omega-9 to protect and nourish the skin. Finally the formula is preserved with natural vitamin E, and fragranced with an essential oils composition (lavender, lemon, cedar) at a very low concentration. And that’s all!
