Herbs from another world

The discovery of cinnamon, turmeric, cocoa and other exotic essences exhibited at the Aboca Museum led to much more than their extensive use in culinary applications - indeed, in the past, these spices were also thought to bring health and longevity, and were used in the medicinal preparations stored in the elegant containers which are on display in the cases that can be found in the various rooms of the museum.

After the tour of the exhibition is complete, the doors to experimentation will be thrown wide open in the museum's herbalist laboratory, where visitors will be invited to delve into the world of apothecaries and pharmacists, preparing a lip balm containing two ingredients from faraway exotic lands, cocoa butter and shea butter.
