Luminous beauty in the shade of the majestic Linden tree. The Linden tree is impressive and statuary, its branches are broad and generously welcoming, offering a priceless sensation of rest and peace for anyone looking for fresh shelter under its green foliage on hot summer days. Appreciated as an ornamental tree along city streets, as well as in parks and gardens, since ancient times it has been revered and even considered sacred: this is why it is no surprise to discover that in Northern European countries, the council of elders would meet under its branches, with the aim of administering justice and making sacrificial offerings.
But that’s not all: the Linden tree is connected to traditional propitious and auspicious signs. Which is the case of the tradition, in Nordic populations, of planting one of these trees in the garden of the bride and the groom on the morning of their wedding day, as a sign of fertility and a long, happy marriage. The theme of longevity is also especially associated to this massive tree as it is believed to life as long as 1000 years! But so is the theme of utility: to think that its flowers, leaves, bark and lymph have been widely used for a multitude of purposes since ancient times. However, thanks to advanced Phytocosmetic Science at L’Erbolario, it has been possible to discover how many excellent gifts the Linden has in reserve for face and body skin care: from its flowers, Research has succeeded in obtaining an Extract with proven antioxidant and protective qualities, as well as a distilled water that helps enhance the freshness and softness of the tissues. These are ingredients, along with other plant-derived active ingredients, that L’Erbolario has used to develop formulas for the excellent products in the Ombra di Tiglio (Shade of the Linden Tree) line, that puts passing time in the shadows, and brings the natural splendour of your skin out into the light. And which every woman and every man will appreciate for their intoxicating, green scent.
