Visiting another Italian botanical garden and Roman Villa to draw some other inspiration for our next work.

Coming inside this wonderful piece of Italian history,the Erbe founder proudly states;"Of course our  first “ maestro” is the work of  famous herbalist physicians from the 15th centuries. They were the first to codify and create beauty products as we know them today. But, I must say that the fascinating and charming word of the women in my life as I was growing up, had the strongest influence in my future chooses. Their life style, the attention they had towards beauty and health, my mother exchanging receipts and beauty secrets with friend, and the smell of the flowers in our evenings promenades,  made me realize that that was the world I wanted to leave in, a simple and elegant life style made of quality and care"

Why not: Everything Old is New Again. 

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.

Coupe rose skin is identified by small broken capillaries beneath the surface of the skin and/or blotchy red and irritated areas.

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

The following plants and flowers for example have been representing for centuries an  usually delicate,sensitive, soothing and protecting treatment with tonic effects on the capillaries helping strengthen them, lighten redness and improve micro-circulation.

Blue Chamomile essential oil which soothes and calms irritation, relieves allergic reactions

Butcher’s Broom and Licorice which have gentle anti-redness and anti-inflammatory action that reduce redness and improve the tone of uneven blotchy skin

Hawthorn and Horse chestnut which stimulate and improve circulation with a special tonic effect on the capillaries, helping gradually strengthen and minimize visible ones.

Rose is known for its antidiarrhoeal, purification, tonic and energizing properties. For topical use this plant is appreciated for its antiseptic, astringent and healing action. Rose again contains vitamin A, B, C, E, K, PP, tannins and pectin which are used for their astringent, healing and toning properties.
