Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is an evergreen herb in the mint family (like lavender). It is native to the Mediterranean and grows abundantly in Croatia. In fact, the very first essential oil cooperative of any kind in Croatia was established way back in 1892 on the island of Hvar – the Rosemary Cooperative of Velo Grablje. Rosemary is renowned for its anti-inflammatory, astringent and antiseptic properties. It is said to benefit dry and mature skin, wrinkles, acne and eczema. The oil is a key ingredient in any soap, lotion or massage blend for sore muscles or joint pain. Because it stimulates circulation and hair follicles, this luxury handmade soap may be helpful for preventing hair loss. It also cleans oily hair well. It’s a good skin toner and strengthens the capillaries. According to legend, rosemary was draped around the Greek goddess Aphrodite when she rose from the sea. The Virgin Mary is said to have spread her blue cloak over a white-blossomed rosemary bush when she was resting, and the flowers turned blue. The shrub then became known as the ‘Rose of Mary’. In the Middle Ages, people placed sprigs under their pillows to ward off demons and prevent bad dreams. And a common Croatian wedding tradition is to welcome wedding guests with a rosemary branch that’s worn like a corsage.

Spearmint (Mentha x spicata) smells like peppermint but is milder and sweeter. Spearmint has traditionally been used to invigorate the senses and as an insect repellent. It is antiseptic, making it a good healing aid. This luxury handmade soap also protects wounds from infection thanks to spearmint’s menthol, myrcene and caryophyllene.

Frankincense (Boswellia carterii), also called Olibanum, is rejuvenating, balancing and relaxing. It has been traded on the Arabian Peninsula and in North Africa for more than 5,000 years. Extracted from the resin underneath the Boswellia tree’s bark, frankincense oil has a beautiful fragrance which has been used in religious ceremonies and as an aid to meditation for thousands of years. It’s used often in perfumery and aromatherapy, and is valued in skincare because it has exceptional rejuvenating properties.
