Today, I’m going to review one of the goodies from my prize gift that I absolutely cherish and that is a hand cream from L’Occitane – Pivoine Flora Hand Cream.
Enriched with shea butter, the Pivoine Flora Hand Cream softens and envelops the hands with the delicate, flowery perfume of peonies. The cream glides on and is absorbed rapidly, providing the hands with nourishment and protection.
495 INR for 13 ml/.44 FL OZ.
Peony – Paeonia lactiflora (as mentioned on their website). This, the common garden peony, is a herbaceous perennial with fleshy roots. It produces a clump of stems every year and large, fragrant, more or less “double” flowers in shades from white to crimson. Peonies were introduced into France in the 16th century and are native to northern China, eastern Siberia, Japan and Korea. Similar in appearance, the European peony, paeonia officinalis, grows in southern and south-east Europe. Peonies have been cultivated in China for 2,000 years for both ornamental purposes (at least 1,000 varieties) and medicinal applications, with peony root used to treat digestive complaints, inflammatory conditions and hemorrhages. The European peony was used for similar medicinal purposes in ancient times and the Middle Ages. It was also considered a magical herb and specific precautions had to be taken when picking it. Dry peony root was believed to be a lucky charm, and worn as a protective talisman. Peony has softening and moisturizing properties.
