Multi-benefit summer oil
Hazelnut Oil and St John’s Wort infused Olive Oil
St John’s wort is a wild plant with golden yellow flowers that release an incense-like fragrance, and traditionally bloom on St John’s day.
It was already used more than 2,000 years ago by Dioscorides, a Greek physician whose works served as a cornerstone for pharmaceutical knowledge: the plant was recommended to heal cuts, infections or burns.
Still today, St John’s wort is believed to have antiseptic, emollient and healing properties, making its oil a renowned treatment for mild burns, sunburns and small cuts.
The variety growing on the Domaine is perforate Saint John’s wort, its latin name coming from the translucent dots scattered on the plant’s leafs and looking like perforations when held up to the light.
Solar maceration and formulation
St John’s wort flowers are handpicked for 3 days at the beginning of summer, at their peak of concentration in active principles. They are then immersed in extra virgin organic olive oil for 5 weeks of maceration, under the sunlight. 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 St John’s wort macerated oil is the basis for the MULTI BENEFIT SUMMER 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 (sweet orange, cypress, cedar) at a very low concentration. And that’s all!
