Your hair can still be fabulous – even when you’re traveling!


You know what I hate? Hotel shampoo and conditioners. You know those tiny bottles that are only good for like two days, and then your hair feels like straw after? They are awful. Typically, whenever I travel, I like to take my own products…. make sure my hair won’t break in two when I tie it up and go.

I was sent a sample of Antica Farmacista’s Grapefruit Conditioner – in a travel size – and it’s absolutely perfect for your next trip!

The Antica Farmacista Conditioner offers a beautiful way to deeply moisturize and fragrance the hair. It’s enhanced with natural ingredients intended to target hair that is oftentimes dry and stripped of essential oils. The formula contains silk amino acids, chamomile, honey and sweet almond oil. The rich lather is silky and creates the perfect foam that results in clean, beautifully moisturized hair.

It feels amazing, and smells beautiful! Give it a try!!

Big Scents Come in Small Packages

I love my Antica Farmacista reed diffuser! I put it out a week ago and forgot it was on my mantle, every time I walked in my house I thought gosh it smells so good in here lately. Duh! It was my amazing new diffuser, just the perfect amount of scent to lightly fragrance your room without overpowring.

Antic Farmacista has the perfect size diffuser for any room and a ton of great scents I love my Lemon, Verbena and Cedar. These are beautiful to display as they are too smell it would make a great Mother’s Day Gift!

It seems like we’re always hearing about new ways to make the most of small living spaces. The recession has certainly reminded people to minimize the clutter in their lives and focus on what’s truly important within their homes. Add to that the vast number of Americans who live in apartments, dorms or simply smaller spaces, and it can only mean one thing: we’re trading large for small. While you’re browsing for the latest in dual-purpose furniture for your cozy quarters though, don’t forget the simple things that will take it from a house to a home. The smallest things – like framed photos of loved ones, comfy pillows and that special scent wafting through the room – can make all the difference. But so many fragrances can overpower a small space, making it unpleasant to walk in the door.

Antica Farmacista Home Ambiance Diffusers, are a unique and beautiful way to fragrance and decorate your home. The delightful fragrances permeate the air through the bottles’ open neck and white birch reeds that are inserted to further diffuse the scent. Simply uncork the bottle and place the reed bundle into the neck. You can enhance the scent by inverting the reeds every few days or as desired. The fragrance will infuse the air and provide a lasting and beautiful scent without ever being overpowering

Introducing Antica Farmacista Lavata di Corpo Hand Wash!

I received a sample of this wonderful new product, and I’m absolutely ADDICTED to the scent. I have the Lavata di Corpo Hand Wash in the scenet Ala Moana.  The soap smells so amazing, I want to use it on my body – or wear it as a fragrance! It’s an awesome hand soap, and it comes in a beautiful bottle!

The carefree lure of the tropics play the muse to this bewitching collection…open sea breezes over beds of flowers, tucked-away gardens and their tantalizing scents and secrets…all of these scenes captured in an old-world apothecary bottle, formulated with only the world’s finest essential oils and natural ingredients. Curated to delight and engage the senses – both sight and smell – the upcoming collections from Antica Farmacista takes a page from tropical travel annals and diffuses it for a modern take on a stand-by classic. With Spring and Summer comes renewal, travel, exploration through the senses, and these collections don’t disappoint on any front.

Scent: Ala Moana

Some flowers open up only to the stars. Too delicate to expose themselves to the sun, some flowers blossom only at night and diffuse their lulling enchantments to creatures of the humid Hawaiian nights. This is what Ala Moana strives to achieve, and succeeds. Meaning “path to the sea,” this transporting signature scent is a full-floral experience meant to evoke lush nights on island tropics. Night-blooming jasmine, plumeria, tuberose and gardenia work in symphony to enchant and relax. Invigorating green notes add a crisp complexity that illuminates this luscious scent.

Scent: Lemon, Verbena & Cedar (Limone, Verbena e Cedro)

Secret gardens and their enchantments lend inspiration to this scent. Like the hidden pockets of hidden gardens themselves, these home ambiance diffusers and room sprays diffuse perfumed passages of complex citrus notes that awaken the senses from slumber. It starts with notes of tart lemon, orange and lemongrass mingling with notes of fresh Italian Verbena, follows with subtle ozonic white florals, and finishes with a delicate earthiness built on notes of cedarwood.
