Melissa, or Melissa officinalis, is certainly one of the oldest and best-known medicinal herbs of our time.


Primula veris (= the first small fruits of spring) has been valued as a medicinal plant for centuries.


Valerian not only improves the quality of sleep, but alsoreduces the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and improves the quality of sleep.

Hay Flowers

Apart from the wonderful scent that the hay flower (Graminis flos) exudes, the essential oils it contains have a positive effect on the body.


Thyme (Thymian vulgaris) belongs to the Mint family and grows to up to 50 centimetres in height. It loves sunny, dry spots, preferably rocky heaths in the Mediterranean region, although it’s also native to Austria.


The marigold (Calendula officinalis), also known as calendula, is one of the most popular medicinal plants that has been recommended by Hildegard von Bingen and many others before and since.


The beneficial effect of marmot oil as in old home recipes has been prized for centuries, above all in the alpine region.

Mountain Pine

Classical mountain pine oil (Oleum Pini pumilionis) is extracted from fresh needles and the tips of branches through steam distillation. The tree also goes by the name of creeping pine, dwarf mountain pine and Swiss mountain pine.


Arnica (Arnica montana) is native to most continents of the earth – in mountain ranges above approx. 2,600 metres. In many countries it’s a protected species.
