What does it contain?

These condiments and infusions are not only a truly sustainable and fully traceable alternative to the products of the big brands whose intensive monocultures and industrialised processes generate a huge environmental impact, but also their aromas and flavours are 100% natural.

The creation of our products begins in the camp. We live in a well-preserved natural environment with an abundance of marigold, rosemary, oregano, thyme, mastic, laurel, lavender, lavender and rockroses that impregnate the Mediterranean bush with aroma and colour. Harvesting in our environment is almost like a walk. We then transform these wild plants in our own distillery and workshop, which we restored and built in 2022.

The condiments and infusions of Esencia Rústica are conditioned by the natural availability of the wild plants, which depend on the particular climatic conditions of each year, so they are seasonal products, with limited stock and with inter-annual variability or depending on the harvesting area.

Box sizes

Bosque mediterráneo Box:

  • 1 x Condiment: wild LAUREL leaves (Laurus nobilis) in Weck bottle with cork lid (580ml)

We collect the leaves of this Mediterranean tree, which, once dried, are a condiment that cannot be missing in our traditional stews, casseroles, soups and rice dishes. It is an excellent stomach tonic, appetite stimulant, digestive, cholagogue and carminative.

  • 1 x Leaves and flowers of Wild THYME (Thymus mastichina) in Weck bottle with cork lid (370ml)

The flowering tops are harvested at the beginning of summer and, once dried, are ready for use as a seasoning for stews and meats or in the preparation of pickles. In addition, because of its expectorant, antitussive and antispasmodic properties, taken as an infusion it is a traditional natural remedy for respiratory and stomach problems. Try it as an infusion with honey and a few drops of milk.

  • 1 x ORGANIC SALT with LEMON in Weck bottle with cork lid (220ml)

Made with organic flower salt from the Salinas del Alemán (Huelva), rich in magnesium and low in sodium, seasoned with lemon peel from our own farm. The lemon is used to season and give its characteristic flavour to salads, meats and fish, providing vitamin C. It will surprise you with a special touch added to cocktails and fruits.

  • 1 x Infusion or seasoning of OLIVE POWDER in Weck bottle with cork lid (220ml)

The olive leaves are harvested by hand from the branches from the maintenance pruning of the estate’s own century-old olive trees. The olive leaf powder can be used to make both hot and refreshing drinks. It can be diluted in water, milk, vegetable drinks, juices or cocktails. Olive leaf extract helps to regulate blood pressure and oleuropein, one of its antioxidants par excellence, inhibits the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, among many other properties.

Tierra de matorrales Box:

  • 1 x Condiment of NEOTA and FENNEL leaves in Weck bottle with cork lid (370ml)

Used as a seasoning to flavour stews as Neota enhances the flavour. Mixed with thyme, its infusion has expectorant, stimulating and digestive properties. It is used to treat fever and stomach cramps.

  • 1 x Infusion of LAVENDER flowers (Lavandula stoechas) in a Weck bottle with cork lid (370ml)

The lavender flower is a symbol in Mediterranean landscapes, turning the fields purple in the central spring months, when the flowers are harvested one by one. The infusion of lavender can prevent and relieve gastrointestinal spasms and stomach heaviness, it is also relaxing and relieves symptoms of colds.

  • 1 x ORGANIC SALT with BASIL in Weck bottle with cork lid (220ml)

Made with organic flower salt from the Salinas del Alemán (Huelva), rich in magnesium and low in sodium, impregnated with fresh basil extract from our garden. Delicious in pastas, sauces, pizzas and salads.

  • 1 x Infusion or seasoning of THYME POWDER (Thymus mastichina) in Weck bottle with cork lid (220ml)

Thyme is a plant endemic to the Iberian Peninsula, traditionally known in some areas as green salt. Used as a seasoning, it intensifies the flavour of food and allows the use of salt to be reduced considerably. Thyme powder can also be used to make both hot and refreshing drinks. It can be diluted in water, milk, vegetable drinks, juices or cocktails.

Aroma de la Sierra Box:

  • 1 x Condiment and infusion of wild OREGANO in Weck bottle with cork lid (370ml)

Oregano is a source of vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as being rich in minerals such as iron, magnesium and potassium. As a condiment it provides an intense and aromatic flavour, suitable for seasoning salads, broths, stews, pizzas and pasta. It combines with other aromatic plants such as basil. Taken as an infusion, it relieves digestive disorders, is diuretic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and relaxing.

  • 1 x Infusion of PENNYROYAL in Weck bottle with cork lid (370ml)

It is one of the most emblematic infusions of our mountain region and also forms part of some traditional cooking recipes, where it is used to flavour soups or cooked vegetables.

  • 1 x ORGANIC SALT with LOCAL TOMATOES in Weck bottle with cork lid (220ml)

Made with organic flower salt from the Salinas del Alemán salt flats, in our own province, rich in magnesium and low in sodium, flavoured with dried tomato powder from traditional Serrano vegetable varieties grown in our own garden. Delicious on toast, pasta, sauces, cheese, salads and vegetables.

  • 1 x Condiment and infusion of wild ROSEMARY (Salvia rosmarinus): leaf powder in a Weck bottle with cork lid (220ml)

It has a strong flavour with aromas of camphor, pine, nutmeg and lavender, making it perfect as a seasoning for meat or fish. Also in marinades or in the preparation of pickles. Try adding a pinch to any dish you want to give a Mediterranean touch: toast, pasta, salads, sauces, soups, rice, pulses or vegetables. It will surprise you in biscuits and jams. A small amount reinforces the other flavours. You can also drink it as an infusion, with water, milk or vegetable drink. Or to add an exotic touch to juices and cocktails.

Artisan’s tips

Light and direct heat, humidity and air are the greatest enemies for the preservation of our natural condiments and infusions.

In order to prolong the properties of our condiments and infusions, Sete recommends storing the products in a cool, dry place, protected from direct light, and in their original containers, as their airtight characteristics help to preserve and protect the products from the air.

The artisan does not recommend storing the products in the fridge as this will cause condensation that will make them damp. And as we have seen, humidity is one of the enemies of our condiments and infusions.

Know about the Artisan

During millennia and until recently, the knowledge about the different ways to use the properties of aromatic plants in our environment was one of the most valuable resources we possessed. 

Sharing and expanding our knowledge about the benefits offered by Mediterranean aromatic plants is one of the aims of Esencia Rústica, through which they seek to promote the value and conservation of our European wild landscapes. 

With your adoption you support Sete to consolidate her project without having to compete or adapt to the rhythms of the big industrial producers.
