Antica preparazione a base di principi essenziali di piante aromatiche, tra le quali l’erba di Santa Maria o balsamite, da sempre conosciuta dai frati speziali di Santa Maria Novella per le sue proprietà digestive e calmanti. Rinfrescano la bocca e leniscono la sete.
I dredged up a memory from decades ago of Aqua di Sta Maria Novella and found the site, if not the product online. I bought the tincture with melissa and other herbs for my daughter, who is prostrate with morning sickness. She actually found the smell soothing and the fact that she didn't immediately reject it makes me think it might even have been helpful. The beautiful fragranced ceramic pomegranate will wait as a later gift. The beautifully packaged delivery was remarkably quick.
