Many of us are aware of one of the leading international skincare companies L’Occitane En Provence, a leader in anti-ageing preparations based on the Immortelle Plant or Smilje as it’s called here in Croatia. To have the opportunity to share my personal story regarding the healing, regenerative qualities of this amazing plant with my friends and visitors to Croatia is something I am so proud to be able to do!
My early background in Natural Health and Nutritional Studies opened the door to Robyn’s Natural Beauty Therapy Salon in Australia many years ago, (before my restaurant and slow food and wine tourism days) where natural organic skincare products always proved therapeutic, successful and very popular when combined with a fresh food diet, and an abundance of clean pure water. Fortunately, today residing in Split on the central Dalmatian coast of Croatia, I’m surrounded by the healing plants of the Mediterranean, and perhaps the most valuable plant of all in the world today, producing anti-ageing essential oil is the magnificent Immortelle resulting in superb skin regeneration qualities as well as having an excellent anti-ageing effect, smoothing lines, plumping the skin, while giving a natural healthy glow.
Where do we find the ‘best of the best’ quality immortelle essential oil? The quality of the immortelle essential oils, pressed and distilled from plants growing naturally along the Croatian coastline and in the hills of the inland Dalmatian hinterland are of the highest level. I’ve travelled to some of the most well-known regions where this herbal plant manages to grow in such harsh conditions, seeking the purest and supposedly the best quality oils and I’ve spoken to many people. The Dalmatian islands of Pag, Šolta, Vis, Lastovo, Brač, Hvar and the Dalmatian hills around Šibenik, Drniš and Knin all boast of having the best of the best, and I would like to agree with all of them, including our inland neighbouring region of Herzegovina!
My personal choice! The immortelle flower heads are harvested and distilled in May June, and after trying and trialling a number of local end products by various producers I discovered a family company that was formed in the early 1990s and have found their products to be of superior quality, a cut above the rest, at realistic and affordable prices. Following analysis of a number of local oils, they chose the Island of Šolta near Split and secondly the hinterland of Šibenik as their primary sources of essential oil of immortelle. The ‘Adria Gold‘ Immortelle range by Biofarm, Made in Croatia has won my admiration and complete 100% satisfaction with continuing excellent results!
