For hundreds of years, lavender has been valued for its extraordinary healing power. Not only is it a natural antibiotic with antiseptic, antidepressant and sedative properties, but it also speeds up healing and prevents scarring.
It is also an excellent mosquito repellent.
Its essential oil is one of the few that can be used pure on the skin. Its light, floral scent has a calming effect on the mind and has the ability to reduce nervous tension.
In the hinterland of Imperia, near the village of Triora, there is an old distillery that produces essential lavender oil: the Cugge distillery.
In this didactic farm the ancient traditions have been handed down from father to son and are still respected today: the processing is still all manual, no chemical products are used and the distillation is done by steam current with wood fire.
Their cultivations are located at an altitude of 1200 metres, on soil with unique characteristics where no chemical products have ever been used. In fact, lavender has been growing spontaneously here for centuries.
We at Naturaequa have decided to rely on this distillery for our organic and natural lavender cosmetics.
