Romantic Aromatic Herbs (dual language)


Romantic Aromatic Herbs – Romantiche Erbe Aromatiche – In Italiano

Bastano alcun vasi da fiori per far crescere su un balcone alcune delle piante aromatiche più usate ma, non per questo, “ comuni” nel senso di “ ordinarie” , “ banali”. Io adoro salvia, basilico , timo e rosmarino.

Sono piantine prepotenti e forti, senza pretese di “immagine”. Quasi non le noti poi, d’improvviso, ti avvicini, e  ti avvolge l’aroma sprigionato da foglioline quasi inapparenti. Sfreghi un rametto di rosmarino tra le dita e ti sorprende un portentoso profumo che non ti aspettavi proprio!  Stacchi un rametto di menta , e il fresco aroma pungente rimane per ore sulle dita.


Sono potenti queste piantine  dall’aspetto sottotono. Tengono un basso profilo ma hanno carattere da vendere!

Somigliano a quella persona di cui ti innamori , non a prima vista, ma subito dopo il primo caffè insieme e una conversazione inaspettatamente interessante e non puoi piu’ farne a meno.

Cominceremo dal Rosmarino. Seguiteci !

To start growing your own “aromatic garden”, even if in a city without space,  it’s enough to begin just with a few pots of your favourite plants.  Personally I started with some of the most common aromatic herbs, with “common” meaning the most popular, surely not ordinary or banal.

Our Herbalist Team love Sage, Basil, Thyme and Rosemary, herbs naturally growing in Tuscany in every corner. These simple plants are strong and stubborn, never worried about their “look”, not trying to appear “glamourous” or “trendy”. What is essential is invisible to the eyes.

You almost don’t notice them but when you get closer, all of the sudden, you are wrapped in their fragrance. Just rub with your fingers a rosemary branch and the amazing scent will take you by surprise. Cut a bit of Mint and its fresh pungent aroma will stay on your hands for hours.


These “low-profile looking” living things are powerful! They remind us of humans with strong character and lots of will power. They make me think of those people you fall in love with unexpectedly, after a few coffees together and a surprisingly interesting conversation, rather than at first sight. And you can’t do without them anymore. Because they can give you all you need. We are going to start with Rosemary – Rosmarino. Follow us !
