In Ancient Greece, hair care was intimately intertwined with locally-grown organic products - for instance women would comb olive oil through their hair to provide natural nourishment and a lovely sheen, while in Crete laurel pits were added as a natural dye to create a distinctive black color.
Today we adhere to the same principle by supplying premium products carefully crafted from local plants, Greek herbs and spices - delivering dynamic Greek haircare history and heritage right to your door.
Organic essential oils - health superpower of the ancient Greeks
It’s believed that the ancient Greeks first adopted essential oils from the Egyptians around 500 BC, when records show that soldiers carried myrrh ointment into battle with them to prevent infections. But it was the ‘father of medicine’ Hippocrates who was first to study essential oils with scientific rigor, carefully noting the effects of over 300 plants including cumin, peppermint, marjoram and saffron.
The expertise he developed also incorporated elements of ayurvedic medicine garnered from Greek military personnel who had encountered Indian physicians during their campaigns with Alexander the Great.
According to Hippocrates, a daily perfumed bath and a scented massage are key to robust health ̶ a recommendation we thoroughly support!
