N°56 Acne Tincture

The court healers of Russia always appreciated the true usefulness of herbs and medicinal plants. Under Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, a system of cultivation, collection and preparation of medicinal herbs was established. Meanwhile, the Apothecary Gardens, founded by Peter the Great to cultivate a collection of plants, attracted the world's best doctors and botanists. At that time, the family lived in Poland, practicing medicine, and studying herbs.

In 1773, a unique recipe for a medicinal paste - “an infusion of herbs to aid in the treatment of skin inflammations” - was compiled and added to the family recipe book. This modern interpretation of the very same ancient recipe, based on calendula and other valuable medicinal herbs, is what you are holding in your hands. This brown herbal infusion was designed to calm irritated areas and rebalance the skin — a concentration of ancient knowledge!
