Provence is full of wonderful ingredients: it is their scents that come to mind when we hear or say Provence. Lavender, rose, almond verbena… as many precious scents that can gently act on our being. It’s this influence of perfumes on our behavior on which aromachology is based. Aromatherapy proposes to use these benefits, these small natural wonders, in treatments, daily actions to achieve a form of wellbeing.

In this way, water orange blossom and lavender promote sleep; almond oil purifies and cleanses the skin... It is the essence of these plants and ingredients that makes beauty. With a few drops, they unleash a power that today we know and use in our daily life. Each plant has something to offer, it’s up to you to take the time to find out.
