Since I was a little child I’ve had sensitive skin and needed to use natural delicate products. So my mom started buying hypoallergenic products and found this shop. Achillea is really close to via Garibaldi, one of the main streets to have a stroll on.
Compared to the city center this neighborhood is quiet… so let’s extend the relaxed atmosphere to our homes with some natural treats.
Achillea is a very warm place, a lot of wooden shelves and a beautiful spiral staircase in a corner. You will be greeted by Lorena, the owner. She will be pleased to help you find the right product by explaining everything you need to know. Here you can find products for personal hygiene from foaming gels to shampoos and creams. You can also find henna, delicate hair dyes and natural make up.
If you’re more into home decor and care there is also space for home fragrances, joss sticks and scented sachets for your laundry drawers.
But I must be honest: I’m really fond of their jewellery section. There are rings, both studs and drop earrings. They’re mostly from India and made of silver. I’m a very proud owner of a pair of drop earrings made from a particular shell that in Sicily is used like a lucky charm: It’s called “Saint Lucy’s eyes” and it’s white with a tiny grey spiral.
Even in summer you can find a lot of natural sun protection and tan enhancers.
Surely worth a visit.
