Lavender, St John’s Wort and Rosemary infused Olive Oil
Rosemary is a shrub with long and thin evergreen leafs, a strong camphoric fragrance, and small flowers of white, blue or purple colour, very attractive to bees.
Rosemary has been an ingredient for many phytotherapy remedies, since Antiquity until now. Narbonne honey, made from Rosemary, is famous for its organoleptic and medicinal properties. This plant is also the main component of Hungary Water, the first alcohol-based perfume in history, and an illustrious youth elixir in the 14th century. Sebastian Kneipp, 19th century famous physician, used to prescribe rosemary baths for their energising and stimulating properties.
Since then modern studies have highlighted rosemary’s health benefits, particularly thanks to its strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory powers.
The variety planted on the Domaine has a camphor chemotype, which provides more specific properties: it is recommended in case of muscular cramps or aches, for it has tension relieving and mild anaesthetizing powers.
Solar maceration and formulation
Lavender, St John’s wort and rosemary flowers are handpicked and are immersed in extra virgin organic olive oil for maceration. The oil is infused by these 3 plants’ active principles, adding to omega-9 and antioxidants naturally brought by the olive, known to soften and protect the skin.
The resulting lavender, St John’s wort and rosemary macerated oils are the basis for the SOOTHING ROLL-ON. They are 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, lavender, cedar) at a very low concentration. And that’s all!
