Beuron Lavender Cream
Pure Skin Creams from Beuron.
In the Beuroner monastery garden you will find large cultures of lavender, marigold, chamomile and comfrey. The plants are used to produce highly concentrated extracts, which are obtained in the monastery nursery. The recipe of the creams has recently been revised, so they are now made on the basis of almond oil, shea butter and glycerin. Mineral oils are not included; the creams are also free of fragrances or dyes. These skin creams are still relatively fatty, however, the skin absorbs them easily now.
In the upper Danube valley, between Tuttlingen and Sigmaringen, you find the Benedictine abbey of St. Martin, Beuron. Monks have lived there until the secularization of the Augustinians. In the second half of the 19th century began a new flowering of monastic life there. Beuron lies hidden and secluded in the limestone cliffs of the Swabian Jura. At the beginning of the 20th century, the "Beuron School", one of the most important styles of modern sacred art, developed in this silence. Some of the paintings and goldsmith works of this era are on display in the monastery church.
