Garden of fragrant, aromatic and medicinal plants.
Cultivated since the 7th century in the medieval gardens, these plants are used for their aroma, their perfume or their medicinal properties. In the Middle Ages, they were called “simples”. These are plants, used either in dried form or in the fresh state, and having medicinal properties depending on the selected part (leaves, stems, flowers, seeds, roots).
The perfume plants are mainly cultivated for their use in perfumery (absolutes, concretes, essential oils, oral water, …), in cosmetics (essential oils and floral water) and in food (floral water). Their essence does not always diffuse naturally, and may require some preparations. The essences extracted come from leaves, stems, roots, flowers or even bulbs.
Sometimes called “herbs”, aromatic plants are edible plants with fragrant leaves that enhance the taste of dishes. Some of them are also used in beneficial herbal teas (lime, verbena, thyme, rosemary, …)
