Lavender is a popular and beneficial plant. Originally a Mediterranean plant, it has been present for centuries in monastic herb gardens. Lavender has a pleasant fragrance and many people appreciate the vibrant purple colour of its flowers. From time immemorial, the scent of lavender has been known to have a calming and soothing effect. The vitamins, minerals and proteins in lavender oil can strengthen the hair and have a soothing effect on the skin.
In Greco-Roman times, aloe vera was used as a painkiller and as a skin care product. Because medicinal properties were attributed to the plant, aloe vera as a potted plant was given a permanent place in many abbeys and was also called the ‘silent healer’. Aloe vera has a cleansing and nourishing effect on the skin and strengthens the natural hydration of the skin. That is why our traditional soap recipes were enriched with natural extract of aloe vera. The products are scented with a fresh floral fragrance. The result is a line of products that highlights the moisturising properties of aloe vera.
