Beuron Lavender Cream
Made with lavender extract from the Beuron monastery garden in the Swabian Alb. Lavender has a calming effect on the skin; the cream nourishes and cares with a formula of various plant oils.
Natural skin creams from Beuron
The Beuron monastery garden contains large cultures of lavender, calendula, chamomile and comfrey. The plants are used to produce highly concentrated extracts, which are obtained in the monastery nursery. The formula of the creams has recently been revised so that they are now based on almond oil, shea butter and glycerin. Mineral oils are not included, nor are they free of fragrances or dyes. As before, these skin creams are relatively fat-oriented, but they are now absorbed into the skin a little easier.
In the upper Danube valley, between Tuttlingen and Sigmaringen, lies the Benedictine Archabbey of St. Martin in Beuron. Augustinians had lived there until the secularization; in the second half of the 19th century, in turn, a monastic blossoming began there with the first new Benedictine foundation after the abolitions of the monasteries, which bore numerous fruits in other places as well. Beuron is hidden and secluded in the limestone cliffs of the Swabian Jura. In this silence, the "Beuron School" developed at the beginning of the 20th century, one of the most important styles of modern sacred art. Some of the paintings and goldsmith's work are accessible in the monastery church.
