According to the Roman poet Juvenal, “Mens sana in corpore sano” (a healthy spirit in a healthy body). In traditional Chinese medicine, a healthy center is also the basis for a clear spirit and internal power.
The sweet, earthy nutritious quality of the red turnip and bulbous celery has been combined with aromatically spicy horseradish and caraway and refined by tenderly sweet smelling orange notes, which make Athena into a pleasure for the body and helps balance the spirit.
The red turnip was originally a secret in the Mediterranean area, which was desired by the Romans as an important cultivated plant from Central Europe.
The bulbous tuber, which is sometimes called a beet, is rich in potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamins and betaine. Because of its red color and nutritious properties, cuisines often prize it as a strengthening blood tonic.
Celery has been counted among the magical healing plant of Europe for centuries, with the attribution of aphrodisiac, magical and protective powers. This nutritious summer and winter vegetable is rich in vitamins and minerals, can be stored easily and is popular for making soups. Its basic effect deserves special attention, as do its content of potassium and calcium.
The caraway family is botanically assigned to the umbellifers and is one of the world’s oldest spices. Caraway seeds have been found in the tombs of pharaohs as well as European lake-dwelling settlements of the Bronze and Stone Ages. Its aromatic, warming and physically strengthening qualities make caraway one of the most beloved kitchen spices. In the herbal healing arts, caraway is especially prized because it promotes digestion, strengthens absorption and resolves cramping.
The balanced composition of good-tasting vegetables, fruits, spices and the Purora herbal water will strengthen your body and help to clear the spirit.
Taste the sweet, earthy energy of Athena and detect the flow of nature.
