Massage Candle

The Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s massage candle is a genuine beauty treatment, made of pure plant oils and emollient butters. It is lit as a normal candle and the wax begins to melt. The ecological wick is made of pure cotton and paper. It is not subject to any chemical treatments, so its colour is natural and unaltered, and combustion is optimal. The melting point is at body temperature, so there is no risk of burning the skin. The singular porcelain container, decorated with gold leaf and suggestive of an antique apothecary mortar, was specially designed by Filippo Burresi, architect.

Scent: oriental-spicy.

Made in one of the oldest Italian pharmacies in the world, the Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, the first elixir was created from distilled rose petals. It was used as a household cleanser following the plague that ravaged Europe and its heavenly scent and antibiotic and antiseptic properties made it very popular. Four hundred years later in 1612, the pharmacy opened its doors to allow women to buy natural salves, lotions and balms to use as beauty therapies. From the garden to the gate, those same products are unchanged today and have achieved a cult following.

The best natural products, plant extracts and oils with healing properties, including virgin beeswax, sweet almond and grape seed oils, egg yolk and glycerin, all designed to nourish, rejuvenate and fragrance the skin. The collection includes the famous rose and orange blossom toning waters and skin tonics, hydrating creams such as Vitamin F Cream, eye serums and night oils, as well as an exfoliating mask and facial washes. The body is also well catered for with specific creams, powders, washes and fragrances. Products include Melograno Body Powder and Rose Bath Oil, as well as hand and foot treatments.
