Renew the Body and Mind with
Le Couvent des Minimes Beneficial Oils
Two indulgent new ways to get the restorative benefits of botanical oils while enjoying the beloved fragrances of Le Couvent des Minimes. The Eau Aimable Beneficial Care Oil and Eau des Missions Beneficial Massage Oil heal the skin and rejuvenate mind.
Botanical oils have long been used in a myriad of healing treatments for the body and hair as well as for mental well-being. Remembering these time-honored uses, Le Couvent des Minimes combines five traditionally used curative oils with their popular Eau Aimable and Eau des Missions scents.
Eau Aimable—or the Botanical Cologne of Love—features Orange Blossom floral water which was distilled and used as healing waters in convents throughout the South of France. To honor this tradition of beauty and wellness, Le Couvent des Minimes Eau Aimable features an emblematic engraving of an angel as a symbol of the love and dedication of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary.
Paying tribute to the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary and their selfless charitable work—in Madagascar, Indonesia, the Americas, and worldwide—the Botanical Cologne of the Missions tells the story of these historic journeys. To recall these exotic lands, Le Couvent des Minimes Eau des Missions uses Madagascar inspired Vanilla and exotic plants and features a timeless engraving of a vintage Java landscape.
Eau Aimable Beneficial Care Oil
Le Couvent des Minimes uses softening Orange Blossom water along with nutrient-rich botanical oils (Sweet Almond, Borage, Sesame, Camelina, and Safflower Oil) for a multipurpose Beneficial Care Oil. When applied to the skin or used in a bath, the lushly scented oil absorbs into and hydrates the skin, while smoothing even the smallest amount on the ends of your hair will leave it silky with a high shine. The scent evokes the rebirth of spring, even during the cold of January with the sweet Orange Blossom providing a fresh, mouth-watering fragrance. (3.4 fl. oz, $32)

ABOUT LE COUVENT DES MINIMES: 400 years ago, a convent was built in the village of Mane in the South of France to shelter the botanist monks of the Minims, who used their considerable knowledge of plants to tend a garden of curative herbs and flowers. Centuries later, the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary continued the original convention of cultivating beneficial ingredients to help strengthen and restore those in need through food recipes. This emphasis on nourishing and reparative care through nature inspired Le Couvent des Minimes’ own simple yet powerful natural care recipes, the basis of a collection of efficacious formulas that draw on the heritage and traditions of the convent of Mane. The rich, plant-based range is formulated with the highest quality botanicals, offering natural skincare solutions in lush fragrances and beautiful textures. From the monastic heritage of the brand to the garden ingredients it incorporates, Le Couvent des Minimes offers simplicity and authenticity for the modern age.
