By ancient tradition common to all monastic communities, both male and female, in the Monastery as well as embroidery, pyrography, creation of illuminated manuscripts, there has always been an apothecary where medicinal liqueurs, lactovari (medicinal compounds with honey and sugar) and other specific preparations based on "simple" were produced, that is officinal herbs grown in the garden of the Monastery or wild herbs collected in the woods. These medicines were intended both for internal use in the Monastery as well as for sale to the public.
The practice of the apothecary in the monasteries of both sexes was in fact of ancient date and universally widespread and that of "Speziala" or of "Aromataria" was a task regularly present in female monasteries.
The rediscovery of the preparations of the Ancient apothecary of the Monastery of Santa Maria della Neve and San Domenico originates from this centuries-old tradition, both in the cosmetic field , both healthy and that today the Dominican nuns propose again.
