Arnica extract: It is impossible not to have heard of arnica; its use is very ancient and it has traditionally always been used as a remedy for bruises and inflammation of various kinds. It is even recommended for rinsing out inflammation in the oral cavity.
Devil's claw extract: The name is due to the shape of its fruit, which look like hooks and resemble the claws of the devil. Its medicinal use originated in southern Africa, and it is now one of the flower emblems of Botswana. In traditional southern African medicine, the devil's claw has been used for centuries to treat various problems, such as:
- Rheumatic diseases
- Joint pain
- Stomach problems
A small curiosity: According to the doctrine of signatures, which medieval herbalists developed by observing nature, plants in their appearance reveal properties that can be beneficial to humans; if you look closely, doesn't the devil's claw look like a hand suffering from arthritis and pain, seeking help and relief?
Marigold extract: the sweetness plant par excellence, thanks to the presence of mucilage, polysaccharides and carotenoids, in particular calendulin, to which the flower surface owes its intense orange color. Highly eudermic, i.e. able to improve the health of the skin, anti-redness, emollient, soothing, calming, it is the plant ally most appreciated by mothers for the well-being of their children's skin.
Tea Tree essential oil or Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia): Known since antiquity for its effectiveness, and wide range of uses, tea tree was called 'the pharmacy in a bottle' by Australian Aborigines as its leaves were used to treat skin infections and wounds. Its name comes from the fact that when Captain James Cook and his men (who landed in Australia in 1770) wanted a refreshing tea, they used the leaves of this tree. The essential oil obtained from the leaves of this plant is very effective and, if applied to the skin, strengthens and regenerates it thanks to the high presence of a molecule called terpinen-4-ol, an alcohol that, due to its chemical characteristics, has strong antimicrobial properties; the WHO has approved the topical use of this valuable essential oil.
Camphor essential oil: In folklore it is used for prophylaxis of infectious diseases. It was also used to treat diseases of nervous and respiratory origin.
Cypress essential oil: strengthens and tones weakened connective tissue. It also has an excellent decongestant power and helps to reactivate circulation, making it an effective aid in cases of tired, swollen, and heavy legs.
Hybrid lavender essential oil: This is the cornerstone oil from which all modern Aromatherapy has developed. The story goes that the French chemist René Maurice Gattefossè burnt his hand during one of his experiments. Partly by instinct, partly by luck (we could call it serendipity) he put his burnt hand into a container with liquid inside to soothe the pain. The container was filled with lavender essential oil. Incredibly, he found that the healing process had been very rapid, and there were no secondary infections. From his insights, medical Aromatherapy developed with Dr Jean Valnet (1920-1995), who applied Gattefossé's techniques during World War II to use aromatherapy to disinfect wounds and environments.
Lemon essential oil: Although lemon is traditionally associated with the Mediterranean basin (lemon immediately brings to mind sunny Sicily), its origins actually date back many years to civilizations that settled in the area around the Indus River. It then spread to China and, thanks to the Arabs, to Greece and Italy, where lemons were imported initially for ornamental and culinary purposes and later, between the 11th and 13th Centuries, for use in treating illnesses, with its anti-inflammatory and disinfectant activities being widely documented in scientific treatises.
Rosemary essential oil: activates microcirculation and cellular oxygenation. Rubefacient, stimulating and tonic, it promotes tissue firming. Excellent for spinal massages for tired backs.
Sage essential oil: according to legend Zeus was suckled by the goat Amalthea next to a sage bush, which is said to have given the milk the esoteric power of the divine; this is why it is also known as "Zeus' herb." It helps to relax the muscles and eliminate toxins and excess fluid.
Wintergreen essential oil: Very rich in salicylic derivatives, the precursor from which some medicines are also made. Its use was mainly known by the Native Americans who used it to treat respiratory disorders, and to combat pain and inflammation, as well as to combat fatigue. The leaves were also applied in the form of poultices to reduce pain and irritation in muscles and joints.
Vitamin E (plant sourced), which increases the shelf life of the product and enhances its effect by acting as an antioxidant and re-epithelializing agent.
