While excavating, archaeologists came across three Roman ointment bottles that belonged to a wealthy resident from Augusta Raurica. We follow these mysterious clues because they hold the key to our ointment formulas. We will use the same raw ingredients that have been used for 2000 years and can still be found in nature today, such as fir resin and sage. We will also make tooth powder from natural ingredients at the workshop.
