Women's Day is in the air, a party we like to celebrate in the SPA. This year we decided to make homemade lip balms and give it to all the ladies who will give a massage in SPA On March 8th in the Resort's Beauty Farm. Lorenza, our SPA manager, naturopathic and passionate and expert in wellness, has created a totally natural, feminine and velvety lip balm for you. Many ingredients come from our territory: the bees wax was brought to us by Lucia, owner of Mieli D'Autore, a tenacious and sweet woman who produces excellent honey right here in the village. The essential oils of rose and violet are by Massimo, our herbalist who prepared them for us with the flowers picked in the Resort Park during the summer. A simple recipe, to do at home, to always have an absolutely natural balm in your handbag. We want to give a virtual gift to all women, in addition to the recipe for natural lip balm we also add a wonderful poem by Antonia Storace.
Best wishes and happy March 8 to all women!

This is a beautiful poem wrote by an Italian writer:
Ci sono le donne….
e poi ci sono le donne donne
E quelle non devi provare a capirle,
sarebbe una battaglia persa in partenza.
Le devi prendere e basta.
Devi prenderle e baciarle,
e non dare loro il tempo di pensare.
Devi spezzare via,
con un abbraccio che toglie il fiato,
quelle paure che ti sapranno confidare
una volta soltanto,
a bassa bassissima voce.
Perché si vergognano delle proprie debolezze e,
dopo avertele raccontate, si tormenteranno
– in un agonia lenta e silenziosa-
al pensiero che scoprendo il fianco e mostrandosi umane
e facili e bisognose per un piccolo fottutissimo attimo,
vedranno le tue spalle voltarsi ed i tuoi passi allontanarsi.
Perciò prendile e amale.
Amale vestite, e senza trucco
che a spogliarsi sono brave tutte.
Amale indifese e senza trucco,
perché non sai quanto gli occhi
di una donna possono trovare scudo
dietro un velo di mascara.
Amale addormentate, un po’ ammaccate
quando il sonno le stropiccia.
Amale sapendo che non ne hanno bisogno,
sanno bastare a se stesse.
Ma appunto per questo,
sapranno amare te come
nessuna prima di loro.
