This plant is native to North Africa. Like most of the Lamiaceae (thyme, lavender, mint..), the Greeks associated it with the goddess Aphrodite and attributed to it tonic aphrodisiac virtues... In the Middle Ages, its digestive properties were praised in the kitchen.

This plant has a very fine herbaceous, slightly peppery smell and can be used in herbal teas. It is also sometimes added to "Herbes de Provence" mixtures.

Cultivated under organic and fair trade methods by our partner farmers, this herb is now available for herbalists or dried herbs processing. It will soon be certified Authentic Provence.

Elixens presents its new range of hydrolats from Sri Lanka while attending the Vivaness trade fair, the major organic event in Europe. 5 new organic hydrosols to complement our catalog, carefully selected from a Fair Trade certified producer. Hydrosol is a co-product, like essential oil, from the steam distillation process of the plant. Our new products bring exotic and original subtle notes to a formulation.

History of the hydrosols

A significant work by our team to source controlled materials coming directly from a producer and respecting our values. Our partner producer is committed to a fair process certified. Its products are certified organic. Elixens France confirmed the quality of these products by visiting the crops, meeting farmers and checking the manufacturing process: expertise carried out by Laetitia LAVERAN, technical manager and André HYVRIER, agronomy manager.
The traditional plants are cultivated organically in the Colombo region in the southwest of Sri Lanka. They are distilled close to the fields. Elixens France guarantees you high standard, filtered and analyzed hydrosols.
