  • ORANGE BLOSSOM / FLEUR D’ORANGER



Botanical Name: Citrus aurantium flower - Botanical Family: Rutaceae - Plant Part Used: Flowers - Extraction Process: Steam Distillation - Origin: Morocco


Orange Blossom, a delicate white or pale pink flower, is harvested from the Bitter Orange tree, a small shrub native to India and introduced around the Mediterranean during the Crusades. Also known as "Néroli," named after the Princess of Néroli (a small town near Rome) who popularized its use in the 16th century. In antiquity, Néroli, a symbol of purity and virginity, traditionally adorned the crowns and robes of brides.

In Provence, Orange Blossom graces numerous desserts like gibassier, navettes, and the pompe à l'huile, a part of the thirteen Christmas desserts. Its pleasant, floral, sweet, and honeyed aroma is widely cherished.

A mild tonic, it soothes, refreshes, and regenerates the skin, restoring radiance and brightness to the complexion. It also has a calming and soothing effect on the mind, reducing stress, aiding sleep, and recharging the nervous system. Positively affecting mental states, it relaxes, instills confidence, and enhances creativity, making it ideal for cases of chronic fatigue, low spirits, emotional shocks, anger, and frustration.




  • LEMON BALM / MÉLISSE


Botanical Name: Melissa officinalis - Botanical Family: Lamiaceae - Plant Part Used: Leaves and Flowering Tops - Extraction Process: Steam Distillation - Origin: France


Our Lemon Balm hydrosol is artisanally crafted from the leaves of organically grown Lemon Balm in Provence by a passionate young couple of producer-distillers dedicated to aromatic plants and meticulous work. They produce a hydrosol of rare quality through concentrated extraction and ancestral methods, ensuring intense olfactory notes, improved preservation, and a high concentration of active aromatic molecules, ensuring its exceptional quality.

Known for its revitalizing, soothing, and softening virtues, it is beneficial for mature, dry, and irritated skin, as well as for blemished skin. Its relaxing and sedative effect is renowned for helping combat stress, emotional crises, and sleep disorders, helping the body and mind relax and tensions release.



  • LINDEN / TILLEUL


Botanical Name: Tilia vulgaris - Botanical Family: Tiliaceae - Plant Part Used: Flowers - Extraction Process: Steam Distillation - Origin: France


Exploring the Essence and Uniqueness of Our Linden Hydrosol: A Distinctive Offering from the Southeast of France. In our unwavering commitment to preserving tradition, our producer collaborates with skilled and independent harvesters, bearers of ancestral knowledge spanning the Southeast region. Our linden harvesting is an intricate, manual process, requiring significant time and patience. Diverging from ancient practices of branch cutting for convenience, our contemporary harvest employs a traditional wooden ladder with an attached cloth pouch for meticulous collection.

Drying becomes an artisanal affair: nestled in barns for optimal ventilation, the flowers and bracts are delicately spread on clean and pre-inspected racks to prevent contamination. Stirred daily to ensure uniform drying and preserve a captivating color, the bracts and flowers typically achieve dryness in 2 to 3 days. Post-drying, the delicate flowers undergo distillation within the heart of the Vercors Regional Natural Park crafting hydrosols: our organic Linden Hydrosol comes to life.

Beauty Unveiled: Our Linden Hydrosol is renowned for its soothing and calming attributes, making it a prized ingredient in formulations for sensitive or delicate skin. Recognized for its brightening and complexion-illuminating qualities, it brings relief to skin prone to redness and itching, alleviating sensations of tightness. Beyond that, it serves as a clarifying tonic for devitalized skin, offering a radiant and brighter complexion while effectively cleansing and softening sensitive skin.

Harmony for Well-being: Aptly termed a 'stress hunter,' Linden Hydrosol extends emotional comfort and aids in addressing sleep disorders, anxiety, and nervous exhaustion. Its soothing effects prove invaluable when the body seeks respite while the mind resists relaxation, presenting a valuable ally for combating sleep disorders, anxiety, and nervous fatigue.

Embark on a sensory journey with our unique Linden Hydrosol — a testament to tradition, craftsmanship, and the bountiful offerings of the Southeast of France.
