Aromatic trio, a timeless classic!
Lavender:The generic name "lavender" comes etymologically from the Latin gerund "lavare" (which must be washed) almost certainly to indicate how this plant was widely used in antiquity to cleanse the body. It is an aromatic herb with a shrub that is particularly appreciated for the scent of flowers, used as decoration but also in herbal medicine and for some culinary recipes. Lavender is among the most recognizable aromatic herbs, thanks to its cluster of purple flowers that stand out on the long stems and the unmistakable scent they give off. It is an excellent natural insect repellent, in particular mosquitoes. It is said that lavender is able to relax mind and body. Inhaled by vapors or hot baths it benefits the nervous system, revealing itself useful against insomnia, fatigue and anxiety.
Variegated thyme: The golden thyme also called "Timo Anderson Gold" is a perennial shrub belonging to the Lamiaceae family. The leaves are small, lanceolate, green, variegated with yellow. The flowers are gathered in lilac spikes. The Variegated Thyme with its intense citrus flavor is irreplaceable in the kitchen to flavor and make many foods more digestible. Ideal for aromatic oils and vinegars and also for fruit salads, jams, sweets and fruit sorbets. It is also excellent in the preparation of cosmetics, thanks to its antiseptic properties. Thanks to the essential oil packs you can counteract the impure skin.
Marjoram: Marjoram is a perennial, semi-rustic plant that is often confused with oregano, from which it differs for its much sweeter and less pungent aroma. The stem is green with red streaks; towards the base it takes on a woody appearance. The leaves are oval, oblong, pale green. The flowers are white or violet, collected in panicles and bloom in summer. It is widely used in both fresh and dried cooking to flavor many dishes. The ancient Romans considered it a symbol of happiness, in fact, it placed on the spouses' head a braided crown of marjoram to wish them luck and happiness.
The vase is in gray tin with refined knurling. Both plants do not require much water and therefore do not tolerate stagnation. It is only necessary to make sure that the soil is not completely dry and that they are positioned in a sunny or half-shaded place, taking care to protect them from strong winds.
