Bitter oranges, organically grown in the south of Italy, have been traditionally used in medicine to provide antioxidants and free radical protection able to increase the skin's natural defense and to prevent cellular damage.

Vitamin C,found in highly curative oranges, is also a great purifier making it ideal for impure skin with dilated pores.

Generally speaking, we know already vitamins activate our vital systems, protect the cellular membranes, reinforce our skin’s resistance, and slow down the aging process. Vitamin C in particular, cofactor of collagen synthesis, is used in cosmetics for the important role it covers in skin hydratation.

Once vitamin C is turned into a cosmetic component, it is able to help skin brighten the irregular pigmentation,through tyrosine, the enzyme responsible for the synthesis of melanin.
Again vitamin C possesses important anti radical action and acts as anti-oxidant in stabilizing the free radicals.

It also presents a fundamental hydrating action; through the regeneration of the depleted vitamin E by free radicals, vitamin C permits the full hydrating process and contributes to preserve over time the elasticity of the skin.

On the basis of this simple and traditionally known concept in the Italian beauty culture, we develop 
our Orange anti aging vitamin C serum

Orange essential oil and extract
lightly astringent, improves unevenly textured skin

Capillary fragility and skin reddening can be treated with the following herbal blend.

Calendula picked and sun drying 

For millennia, nature was the pharmacy and the natural world provided the ingredients for medicine and beauty. There were two approaches: Aromatherapy (the use of essential oils to enhance and heal) and Phytotherapy (the use of particular plants products to prevent and treat illness).

In the 19th century the industrial revolution defined a new relationship between man and nature, and one aspect of this revolution was the development of the chemical industry. Over time this industry, with its emphasis on standardization, a particular approach to health, and the profit motive, began to substitute synthetic ingredients for vegetal substances and in this way interrupted a long tradition of folk medicine.

However, recently people have begun to rediscover the value and pleasure found in natural products while recognizing the superior results achieved from Aromatherapy and Phytotherapy. The science of Aromatherapy studies the properties and indications of essential oils used to identify their beneficial qualities. These include properties that make them suitable for the maintenance and health of the skin, for personal hygiene, as well as to prevent unbalanced skin conditions. They also help protect cellular membranes from premature aging processes and to diffuse aromatic scents at home to perfume and disinfect.

The authentic systems of extractions used often in Italy are the results of millennium-old cultures and communities that dedicated great efforts and resources to the study and applications of the curative properties derived from medicinal plants and harvested in their ³balsamic time² period. (The moment when the plants offer their highest therapeutic virtue.)

Skin is not merely a sack covering our body¹s bones, muscles and organs. It is, in fact, our largest organ and acts as an armor to protect us from the corrosive external environment. Aromatherapy is one the most effective ways to prevent oxidations, delay aging processes such as loss of skin tone and elasticity, to nourish, protect, purify and rejuvenate. Treatments with essential oils are more intense and therapeutic than those products, such as moisturizers, that lack these essential ingredients. Essential oils can never be used directly on the skin; they must be blended with moisturizers or diluted in some medium such as a vegetable base oil like: Sweet Almond Oil, Evening Primrose, Jojoba, Avocado, Olive, Karite, Grape Seed Oil.

For centuries Italian alchemists and herbalists have relied on the healing properties plants and flowers to heal dry skin and to ameliorate the effects of aging. It is an age-old practice that perhaps hasn’t been improved on.

"Villa d'Este",one of the most known Italian garden

For example this is one of the oldest herbal formulation to treat dry-sensitive skin 
especially with a tendency to redness and capillary fragility;

Chamomile essential oil ;it soothes and calms irritation, relieves allergic reactions. Chamomile is anti-inflammatory, treats capillary fragility, and helps calm eczema and allergic conditions.

Butcher’s broom and Licorice;they have a gentle anti-redness and anti-inflammatory action that reduces redness and improves the tone of uneven blotchy skin.
Butcher’s broom is vasoconstrictor, improves circulation and reduce redness. Licorice; treats acne, calms allergic skin and improves condition of fragile capillaries.

Hawthorn and Horse chestnut; stimulate and improve circulation with a special tonic effect on the capillaries, gradually helping to strengthen and minimize visible ones.
Hawthorn; lightly astringent with tonic and healing effects especially for capillaries.

Herbal preparations sold at the Italian markets.

An ancient market in Rome.

Growing up in Italy it was customary to be acquainted with the natural healing methods from the folk medicine.Healing properties of plants and flowers are our foundations applied in the everyday life, including beauty receipts used for centuries and improved overtime.

We all have been raised through the knowledge that essential oils, in their pure form and extracted in a safe way, are great preservatives and anti-oxidants.For example, if we extract the active principal of the Lemon, we obtain the “ascorbic acid” used as a preservative and so on.
Everyone knows Chamomile soothes, Rosemary stimulates, Mallow soothes if the gums are irritated, or Calendula cream helps if your skin is flaking dry. Calendula,in deed,possesses  a substantial content of carotenoide and flavonoidi.The essential oil found inside carotenoide has been demonstrated to have incredible antibacterial and antivirus properties,meanwhile the flavonoidi provides this flower with emollient,lenitiv and refreshing properties.For this particular reason in Italy  we love to  use Calendula to treat  the irritated intimate parts of babies,because his healing capacity isolates the irritated part of the skin and adjusts the humidity degree.

During the past Italian alchemists and herbalists were used to using calendula to heal scares. This flower indeed is able to accelerate the natural healing process of scars and stimulate skin tissue granulation when burns, abrasions and small plagues occur. Calendula optimizes also skin blood circulation, by promoting an antibacterial activity.Again Calendula is very helpful to prevent and cure reddened skin during winter if it is utilized constantly at the beginning of the cold season  for all this period of the year.

Clinical studies show that inhaling the aroma of essential oils turns on the entire neuron-endocrine system, the neurological area which intimately affects our deepest emotion. The oils fragrance help re-establish harmony, either in the body’s physiology up to a mental emotional level, balancing our entire personality. Once absorbed through massage, essential oils penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin helping to relieve areas of congestion and improving the quality of our self regulating resources. Essential oils have properties that make them suitable for the maintenance and health of the skin, for personal hygiene, as well as to prevent unbalanced skin conditions. They also help protect cellular membranes from premature aging processes and to diffuse aromatic scents at home to perfume and disinfect. They also act to prevent a wide range of skin disorders associated with aging, resulting in long-lasting, positive effects.

In Italy those type of information represents our everyday life, we always used natural remedies to cure minor ailments, mixing and blending mixtures of herbs for all kinds of needs. The association of various different herbs in one single product is the key to aim at various skin conditions. These associations and relative ratio of dosages is a precise science based on classic preparations provided only custom made by local pharmacies.

Among the most used and known  herbal preparations we love to remember;

Chamomile & Sweet Almond Oil; for the face, light and soothing oil, recommended to heal dry and sensitive skin.Anti-inflammatory,treats capillary fragility, helps calm eczema and allergic conditions. Reduce redness and evens the tone and color of the skin.

Lavender & Sweet Almond oil; Lavender (from Latin-lavare-to wash) is always been associated with cleaning and purification. Balances the natural ph of the skin, normalizes sensitive skin with blemishes. Mildly antiseptic helps prevent bacteria that cause acne and irritation, helps heal scars due to acne, and prevents blemishes.

Rosemary & Almond Oil; Rosemary has been traditionally used to stimulate oily and dull skin, refines the skin texture, reduces and purifies clogged pores, antiseptic quality helps the healing process of skin eruption caused by acne.

An old centuries herbal formulation to treat rosacea and sensitive skin:Royal Jelly, Evening Primrose, Hops, Calendula, Chamomile and Wheat Germ Oil

A famous botanical garden around the "Accademia dei Lincei" in Rome.

Aromatherapy is the use of natural flowers and plants essential oil to enhance the health of body and mind. Essential oils are found in flowers, roots, leaves, bark, wood and resins.

The healing practice through the use of essential oils dates back in the history when Hypocrites claimed it as one of the most effective medicine of that time. The first reported case of essential oils based cure even occurred in ancient Egypt, where antiseptic natural properties of unguents were well known.

From Egypt and the Middle East, knowledge of the art of essential oils traveled to Greece, Rome and the Arab world. During the middle ages, alchemists were experts in essential oils extraction and healing formulas preparations.

During the 18th and 19th centuries essential oils continued to represent a major support for the healing system until they were replaced by synthetic drugs. In Europe aromatherapy has been recognized for many years as valuable therapy and it was indeed taught in medical schools.

One example of herbal formulations still in use in Italy is the combination of

Royal Jelly, Evening Primrose, Hops, Calendula, Chamomile and Wheat Germ Oil to treat dry, sensitive, mature skin as well as rosacea.
