It's at the foothills of the Black Mountain, in the village of La Livinière, not far from Carcassonne, that our natural products are born. They are handmade by us to naturally and durably improve your well being, thanks to their aromachological properties, and to help you feel good.
We produce them in small quantities per order and in all transparency.
We grow multiple varieties of aromatic plants respecting the organic agricultural process (organic certified & and organic certification in process) on our land in the Minervois region. We also harvest a few plants in the surrounding wild in a reasonable manner.
Our collection of more than 140 varieties of lavender and over 60 varieties of rosemary, as well as the diversity of aromatic plants that we grow, allow us to create original and high quality products with unique olfactive signatures and properties.

Our products are 100% natural, handmade, without preservatives or dyes, not tested on animals, eco-friendly, and packaged in recyclable and reusable packaging.
When you smell an essential oil, a hydrosol or a plant, the little hair in your nose pick up the molecules of essential oil. They transfer up to the olfactory bulb (located behind the forehead), and then to the hypothalamus (a master gland) which sends a message to the pituitary gland, which sends a message to the adrenal gland and to the reproductive system. It also goes to the endocrine system which is connected to the immune system.
When the molecules of essential oil reach the olfactory bulb, they make neurons react along the way which are connected to the nervous system. This is what causes the effects such as calm, relaxation, excitement, happiness...etc.
When you smell an essential oil, a hydrosol or a plant, the scent triggers a reaction in the emotional part of the brain (the limbic area) where all your emotions and your memories are stored.
This is how your emotions are awakened by those scents and how those scents influence your behavior and mood (aromachology).
