Good morning,walking inside a wonderful Sicilian botanical garden we keep thinking how to improve our herbal blends.

A wonderful Sicilian botanical garden.

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.

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.

Therefore, the versatile properties of these oils and their lack of side effects make Aromatherapy a great alternative to conventional medicine for many conditions.
Based on years of experience and passion in the aromatherapy field, Erbe, which has the reputation of extracting the best quality of essential oils in Italy, is proud to introduce these healing and beautifying oils ready to use on the face, body or as massage oils. Essential oils are extremely concentrated and cannot be used pure, they are invariably deluded in base oils.

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.

That branch of Aromatherapy known as  aroma/cosmetica  uses the power of penetration through the tissues of the essences, to establish beauty treatments that are not limited to the surface of the skin but, to be corrected in a stable cells renewal  process. The therapeutic  properties  of the essential oils in pharmacology are also the foundation of their special and profound action in dermo-cosmetics.
Essential oils perform the function of stimulating the exhausted tissues, promote cell renewal and maintain constant the level of purification. The best results are obtained with blends of essential oils that work synergy with  oils or creams or emulsions and extractions. The most recent research has developed dermo-cosmetic functional products based on specific essences for various treatments that integrate the therapeutic aspect-base with the aesthetic. More practically, the plants can be considered as a laboratory containing many chemicals, extractable in different ways depending on the method used. From each of these methods it is possible to obtain a final product with specific requirements and characteristics, with specific therapeutic indications. The extractive techniques applied to material of vegetable nature, are employed as well as for obtaining the pure active principle, removing unwanted components from the plants. Aroma-cosmetics are based on the therapeutic action of extracted herbs and flowers and essentials oils. The sources and quality of the row natural ingredients play a primary role, harvest must occur in season and in the (balsamic time) when the plants offer the most of their therapeutic properties.

There is a growing public seeking natural products but it is difficult to discern among the many so called “ natural” “organic” brands. There is a lot of confusion and I feel is important for me to be distinguished by that type of categories because, regardless of their claim, in reality most cosmetic company uses the same commercial bases as everyone else, synthetic or “reconstructed” essential oils and inert row ingredients. So far ERBE has been recognized as the only brand reflecting the Authentic Italian Beauty Culture and our plan is try to pursue this concept with integrity and innovations.

Combined to modern cosmetics development techniques,our manufacturing procedure still sticks to those three traditional principles;


Parts of the fresh plant are placed in an airtight container and covered with almond oil or other base oils for 30 days


After this period the oil is filtered and transferred into another container and skips to the pressing plant mixed with oil that contains most of the functional substances in the plant itself. Two more days of resting, then a second screening and other purifying processes occur  before the oil, filtered and pure, is ready for distillation.


Essential oils are obtained by steam distillation. The pressurized steam is introduced into the lower part of the distiller and passes through the plant parts or oil to vaporize the volatile oils contained in them.  It is a method that applies to most of the aromatic plants and exploits the physical properties of essences, in particular their volatility.It is to separate the essential oil from the plant origin using a jet of water vapor, which invests plant tissues and "carries" the essence. From the process you get two final products: the distillate and the aromatic water. This is the water that comes from the condensation of the same steam, scented by a small fraction of essence dissolved in it.
