Lavender Salts were an ancient medicine found in old pharmacopeias, known for its stimulating properties. The combined pungent order of ammonia and fresh lavender stimulates the senses. Historically they were used as a remedy for fainting or as a stimulant. In fact, these salts with their scent stimulate a reflex inhalation that causes the breathing muscles to contract faster. It is an ancient remedy that is no longer used today except to take a leap into the past.

Warning: Use with caution. For external use. For smelling only; do not ingest. Keep out of reach of children. Store tightly closed in a cool place.

Santa Maria Novella Pharmacy (Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella) is probably the oldest pharmacy in the world that is still in operation. Dominican monks established the apothecary when they began growing herbs to make salves, balms and medicines for use in their infirmary. News of the extraordinary quality of their products spread far and wide. In 1612, the monks opened their doors to sell to the public.

The pharmacy still uses only natural raw materials of the highest quality and continues to follow the ancient procedures originated by the Founding Fathers. Most of the medicinal herbs used are grown locally. Products are never tested on animals.
